Pape hammer gun in excellent original condition utilizing Papes patent 1504 of 1866 for lock up. 29" damascus barrels choked R -IC, L-IM, and with recent British nitro proof and 2 3/4" chambers. Bores are near perfect. Min wall Thickness R=.030 L=.026. It was made in 1887. Profuse and crisp engraving all over along with Papes fancy checkering patterns make for a beautiful and unique gun It weighs 6lbs 2oz. Back action locks with rebounding hammers. LOP is 14 3/8 to heel and toe plates and a uniquely checked butt in between. There is a sligtht cast for right hand shooters. DAC= 1 1/2", DAH= 1 7/8". This gun is a collectors dream, made by the "Purdey" of the north. The only negative is that one of the hammer screws is missing - it has been replaced but it shoud be remade and engraved by a professional. The original was lost while shooting skeet several years ago.
