serial #3557, 16 ga. (2 1/2"), 28" barrels choked cylinder and improved cylinder with bright excellent bores. The barrels retain perhaps 85-90% fading original blue, toning to a deep plum with some wear to pewter in the carry area above the forend. The boxlock frame retains about 90% original color case-hardening, toning on the front edges of the flats at the carry point with some light oxidation staining in that area. Each flat features the makers name with some very light borderline engraving with some light sprays of scroll atop the frame itself. The bottom plate shows about 75% later restored blue which is toning slightly, the guard with original blue on its bow, toned to pewter in the grasping area. The checkered walnut pistolgrip buttstock rates very good as neatly refinished many years ago, now coarsely re-checkered in a somewhat amateurish fleur-de-lis pattern, with nice dropper points at the cheeks and an un-engraved silver monogram plate along the toeline. The splinter forearm rates very good with fine original checkering which has now worn to flattop, the horn tip insert is in place. The barrels exhibit light lateral play with the tiniest sliver of light visible between the barrel breeches and the standing breech, the gun operates well mechanically. Length of pull to the 1" Pachmayr recoil pad is 14 1/2" with drops of 1 1/2" and 2 3/8". An excellent upland candidate. (38779-2) {C&R} (700/900) SOLD FOR $1,380.00
