serial #228488, 16 ga. (2 1/2''), 28'' barrels choked modified and full with bright excellent bores. The Titanic steel barrels retain about 98% lovely original blue showing some light even fading and the sparsely scattered minor handling marks here or there that come from the years. The rib wears dual ivory target beads with light engraved rings around the breeches. The D-grade engraved No. 1 frame is very nice retaining perhaps 95% original color case-hardening which has faded to a silvery case-hardened patina on the belly of the frame with the bow of the guard toning to a warm plum. The engraved dogs remain crisp with a flight of birds on the belly. The checkered American walnut capped pistolgrip buttstock and splinter forend rate very fine with much original varnish and only the expected minor handling marks that come from a field used arm. The length of pull to the period Hawkins recoil pad is 14 1/8'' with drops of 1 5/8'' and 2 7/8''. There is an oval monogram plate along the toeline that is engraved ''NRW''. The arm locks up tightly with the top lever drifting just left of center but nicely on-face. Equipped with double triggers, ejectors, and automatic safety, the gun seems to work well however the ejectors have been disabled. A very handsome 16 bore that could take to the woods as it is or be tuned up and its ejectors revamped. (39010-16) {C&R} [Dr. Jess P Lewis Collection] (6000/8000) Sold For 4600.00
