*** SOLD *** REDUCED *** This beautifully engraved Belgian 12 gauge hammer pigeon gun has 29-1/8”(74cm) barrels equipped with Briley chokes and elegantly sculpted rebounding hammers. When cocked the hammers rest below the shooter’s line of sight. The game scene engraving marks this as a high end custom gun by this quality Belgian maker. *** With side clips and a third fastener this is a strong but elegant pigeon gun which weighs 7lb 13 oz. It is extensively engraved all over the frame, hammers, and the breech end of the barrels. Each sidelock has two scenes; one with a pigeon in flight and the other of a hunting dog. The bottom of the frame shows a pair of pigeons in flight. The trigger guard depicts a dog retrieving a pigeon. The rib is engraved with a pigeon and with a symbol which depicts dice framed by halberds. The fences, forearm iron, and the remainder of the frame are extensively scroll engraved. Each barrel has engraving on the top and side at the breech end. *** The 29-1/8” extractor barrels are chambered for 2-3/4” cartridges and made of Acier Siemens Martin steel. The raised solid rib is hand checkered in a unique pattern and inlaid in gold on the rib is the inscription “HDH Cir aux Pigeons”. The gun comes with Briley interchangeable choke tubes which makes it very versatile and a great travel gun. *** The stock is made of straight grained walnut ideal for strong pigeon or game loads. The original sling swivel has been removed from the barrels although one is still installed on the stock. This can easily be removed and the hole plugged. Stock dimensions are 1-3/8” by 2-1/4” by 15-1/2” including a 1-3/4” pad and spacer. Cast off for the right hand shooter. *** This beautiful gun would be a joy to take to the range or to the field on pheasants or doves. *** Buyer is responsible for all shipping, insurance, and any other related charges. I give a 3-day non-firing inspection period and will only accept returns at buyer’s expense if the gun is not as described in the listing.
