serial #27503, 16 bore, 28'' barrels are choked improved cylinder and improved modified with mirror bores. This fabulous 1912 production Holland features hand detachable sidelocks with cocking indicators, double triggers with articulated front and a sunken rib. The action and locks feature full coverage intertwined relief scroll with ''Holland & Holland'' in ribands on either lock. The barrels are proofed with 2 3/4'' chambers at 3 1/4 tons of pressure per square inch and show nice scroll on rib at action and nicely engraved borders around breeches. The minimum wall thickness measures at .027'' with nearly all other areas being above .030'' and the barrels show Holland's 98 New Bond Street address. Included with the gun is a letter from Holland & Holland dated October 12, 1999 addressed to Mr. Falvey stating that the gun was rebarreled by them in 1960. The shotgun remains in fabulous condition retaining virtually all of its restored finishes, no doubt done by Holland & Holland when the barrels were fitted. All engraving is sharp and crisp with no evidence of pitting anywhere on the gun, ejectors are in-time and function flawlessly. The checkered walnut stocks are of nicely figured walnut with straight grip and splinter forearm. The checkering is crisp and dropper points are very well-defined. The shotgun handles beautifully weighing 6 lbs. on the dot and with a 15 1/4'' length of pull over a 1 1/4'' leather covered pad and showing drops of 1 1/2'' and 2 1/8''. The gun comes in a later leather trunk style case with Holland & Holland label and with what looks to be the original paper load information card on interior lid. The case includes a cleaning rod, leather case with cleaning implements, an oiler and snap caps. A lovely Holland in a nice configuration that is ready to go afield.
