Description:
Hammerless Sidelocks - Completed in April of 1982 this is a nice example of what the Germans build. Great dimensions and good balance. Note the Kersten patent double lump extensions for a super tight lock up. This baby is not coming apart! In my hands the gun is lively and comes up naturally.

Briley choke tubes (with wrench) that come with the gun:

Series 3 lead Skeet (2)

Series 3 lead IC (2) Series 3 lead Mod (1)

Series 3 Lead full (2)

Steel only Mod (2)

Steel only IC (1)

If your not in love with the authentic period white line pad I would recommend a new leather covered pad which would look very good. *** Note: To see this gun with high resolution photos and a zoom-in feature, go to the vintagedoubles main site and search for the gun ID: 4367 or browse the main site to see our full gun collection.
