serial #RE84246, 12 ga., 30? barrels choked light full in both with bright excellent bores. The barrels retain about 95-97% original blue, the loss is due to some even fading with light wear at the muzzles and above the carry point of the forend, also with sparsely scattered light scratches or handling marks here and there from the years. The frame and lockplates are lovely retaining 98% plus original vivid color case-hardening with wear on the sharp edges of the fence and carry point at front of frame. The triggerguard has very good original blue as does the forend latch release escutcheon, the iron is a silvery patina. The checkered capped pistolgrip American walnut buttstock and forend rate very good plus with a bit of added varnish, and the expected very minor dings, scratches or handling marks that come from the years. The length of pull to the antique replacement grooved hard rubber buttplate is 14 1/8? with drops of 1 3/4? and 2 3/4?. The gun locks up solidly with the top lever still right of center, robust ejectors and an automatic safety. An excellent candidate for fall waterfowling, while still maintaining solid investment potential with all of its lovely vivid color case-hardening. (38906-14) {C&R} (1200/1800) SOLD FOR $1,265.00
