*** REDUCED *** In business since 1790 in Ferlach, Austria the Fanzoj family has been involved in the manufacturing of very high quality handmade guns and rifles for over 220 years. Only a small number of guns is made each year. This precision made highly engraved sideplated boxlock is a great example of the quality of the work produced by Fanzoi. *** Beautifully engraved with a highly figured hand oil finished walnut stock and splinter forearm this16 gauge is a joy to behold and perfectly balanced in the hands. Weighing 5lb 15oz it is also easy to carry during a long upland hunt. *** The frame has double triggers, sideclips and an internal crossbolt to secure the action. The left side of the frame is decorated with a beautifully executed engraving of a hunting dog and pheasants. The frame bottom depicts a running hare and the right side of the frame is adorned with a fox and partridges. The trigger guard is also engraved with a gamebird and floral pattern. *** The 72cm(28-3/8”) barrels, made of Bohler-Blitz Stahl, have a top extension, auto ejectors, are engraved at the breech end, and are topped by a hand cross hatched rib. Chambered for 65mm(2-1/2”) cartridges they are choked Modified and Full. *** The highly figured walnut stock has a swept back pistol grip with a horn grip cap. The splinter forearm has an Anson-style release button. Stock dimensions are 14” to a thin factory buttplate by 1-1/2” by 2-7/16”. Neutral cast. *** Overall the stock, metal and mechanics are in excellent plus condition. There is a small discoloration on the bottom rib as shown in the last photo below. High quality like this is talked about a lot but not produced very often. A great gun for game or clays, you will be proud to own such a fine example of the gunmakers art. *** I am an FFL and will need a signed copy of your dealer’s FFL.
