Stunning vintage 20ga. remaining in near pristine condition throughout. Weight: 6 lbs. 1 oz. Stock Dimensions: 14 ¾”x 1 ½”x 2 3/8”x straight. Superb, flawless, 28” barrels with 2 ¾” chambers and brilliant bores, .628”/.631” (proofed at .625”/.626”), choked .011”/ .035”, and with minimum wall thickness of .033”/.029”, retain virtually all the original black finish. The iconic Westley Richards Patent Hand-Detachable locks remain in pristine condition. Beautifully deep-relief engraved action and side plates equipped with inspection doors retain virtually all the original brilliant hardening colors. Westley Richards Patent single-selective trigger. Nicely figured walnut stock and forend retain virtually all the original finish and checkering remains crisp and sharp showing no evidence of use whatever. Silver’s butt pad in good condition.. Original Maker’s oak and leather case is in fine condition and contains the original complement of accessories in virtually unused condition. The original canvas and leather outer cover has a number of tiny specs of what would appear to be white paint spatter but is otherwise in very good condition. The overall fit and finish of this magnificent little gun is exemplary in every regard and it is hard to believe it is almost 100 years old. Overall a near pristine example and a great rarity. Unlikely you will ever have another opportunity to own such a classic in this condition.
