#1049, A Tough and Stout Double Rifle Built the Way a Pre-War British Double Webley Was Made: It is a Abbiatico & Salvinelli Famars (Champlin Design & Influence) 470 Nitro Express Boxlock Ejector Model Africa Express Double Rifle Made 1993 with 24” Ejector Chopper Lump barrels, 1/4 Rib with 1 standing & 1 folding with a gold sight line, Hidden third bite, Long Bar Webley Type Action body, Bushed strikers, Double triggers with an articulated front trigger, Extended top tang over the comb of the stock, 6 Locking screws on key screws, Extended trigger guard tang to the trap door grip cap, Rolled trigger guard edge for the right hand, Swing lever lock forend release that is strong & very practical, Splinter forend, Trapdoor grip cap, 14 11/16" LOP over a 1" pad, Cast-Off for the right hand, The proper & real big bore weight of 11 lbs. 2 oz. which speaks well of its size & toughness built into this piece, 15% engraving coverage, Case colored action body, A very nice piece of European walnut that has excellent grain layout for strength & durability, This piece remains in 97-98% original condition, The bores are like new, It is cased in the maker’s leather trunk with paper work & trade label. It was regulated at the factory using Federal soft point at 50 yards. I personally was behind Abbiatico & Salvinelli first building this rifle and I wanted a modern day Webley Long Bar Action. This is as good as it gets relative a current and modern double rifle. This piece is flat out one solid rifle with proper weight, toughness, large 470 size action body and it will stand the test of time.
