Description:
Very scarce W.W.Greener FT-30 snap underlever 8 gauge wildfowler S/N 58410 was made in 1911. F is for the Facile Princeps action and T is Greener's symbol for an 8 gauge. This gun is super quality and undoubtedly worked on by the same team of gunmakers and engravers that Greener assigned to the G guns(G50-70). It actually, when you look at ornamentation, wood quality and frame sculpting, appears much higher than a grade 30 gun, and more like 40 to 50. According to Graham Greener, this gun, obviously a special order, was started on Sept. 22,1910, and completed March 1, 1911. It has 32" Sandvik(Swedish) steel barrels Birmingham nitro-proved for 2 1/4 oz. loads with 3 1/4" chambers. Nominal proof is 9/2 and bore diameters are .824. Bores are mint. Gun is tight and on-face and retains almost all of vivid case color and has approximately 50-70% fine scroll with dogs and birds . Forend has Deeley lever takedown with horn tip. Triggers are gold plated and Greener name is inlaid on both sides of frame.Greener side safety. Serpentine fences are by Gardner, and engraving by Tomlinson, both of whom were on the team that built the top grades. Weight of the gun is 10 lbs. 14 ozs. Stock dimensions as follows; LOP =13 5/8", DAC= 1 13/16" DAH= 2 15/16" with a highly figured straight grip buttstock. Screws are all clean, no rust, barrel blue is original and 98%. Stock has factory horn buttplate with several wormholes. Just a spectacular old gun in great untouched condition. You won't find another one like it. For the advanced Greener or big bore shotgun collector.
