This Suhl made Drilling has nearly all of its mechanical life left, it is tight and on the face and has been well kept. The piece comes in a very nice leg-o-mutton trunk for both barrels. This quality gun represents all the fine features of a Classic Pre-War Suhl made Drilling. Just take a look at the style, workmanship, mechanics and grace of this gun and compare it to the goofy current stuff on the market today that sells for a lot more money. How some people can go out and buy this current made crap and pay the kind of money they do just blows me away.
