Stunning high original condition W.C. Scott “Premier” Quality 12ga hammer gun - the finest example I have seen! W/orig. Case
Absolutely gorgeous high original condition W.C. Scott 12ga "Premier" Hammer gun. Virtually never seen with an original straight grip, this gun has got it all! This gun made with 30" Damascus barrels, checkered splinter forend with long fully engraved release lever at tip, double triggers and extractors. The gun has a very fine piece of English Walnut which is checkered in a point pattern with tear drop behind the locks and terminates with its original lined horn buttplate. The case hardened receiver is beautiful engraved in fine scroll as are the hammers and fences. Large gold shield behind top tang. The gun is near full coverage engraved and remains in exceptionally fine all original condition.
Overall the gun remains in exceptional original condition with more than 90% of the Damascus pattern remaining. Receiver retains more than 75% vivid original case color and the screws are all near mint retaining nearly all of their fine nitre blue. Stocks are sound and retain nearly all of their original finish with checkering being very crisp for a gun of this vintage. Stocks with minor handling marks and impressions, but nothing serious to note. Bores are mostly bright and shiny with some light orange peel ahead of the chambers. Mechanics are crisp.
This exceptional Scott is priced at $5500 plus shipping direct to your door as an antique. These high grade English hammer guns are impossible to source in original untouched condition as they were virtually all sent back to the maker for service annually. This gun has exceptional merit to a collector and belongs in a distinguished collection.
