This wonderfully crafted three barrel set features 2 over/under rifle barrels and an over/under 12 gauge shotgun barrel set. The barrel sets are numbered "1/2/3" with light gold inlay and each set has its own corresponding numbered forearm. The rifle barrels (1 and 2) are chambered in .458 Winchester Magnum and .375 H&H Magnum respectively and feature beaded blade front and two-leaf (one standing, one folding) rear notch sights. The .375 barrel also features integral claw type scope bases. The shotgun barrels have 3 inch chambers, ejectors, and full/modified chokes. The satin coin finished action and side plates features light border engraving with detailed Bulino style engraving of large game animals including cape buffalo, lions and kudu. Each engraving is signed "F.BIELLI". Fitted with dual triggers and a tang mounted thumb safety. Mounted with extra fancy checkered forearms and a pistol grip stock with a small trap in the grip cap, a two cartridge trap on the underside of the buttstock, and a solid rubber recoil pad. The stock measurements are: drop at comb 1 3/8 inches; drop at heel 1 3/4 inches; length of pull 14 1/4 inches. The set includes a leather bound Beretta takedown case, three-piece wood cleaning rod, two 12 gauge snap caps, cleaning rod heads, and four turnscrews fitted specifically for this gun.

Rating Definition:

Excellent. 99% original blue and coin finish remains with minimal light handling marks overall. The buttstock has a few small dings but otherwise is excellent. Mechanically excellent. The forearm for the shotgun barrels is cracked on the left side just ahead of the hinge fitting. The case is excellent with a few light scuffs on the exterior.
