Blued steel barrels with dual bead sights on the matted vent rib, 2003 dated Italian proofs, interchangeable chokes (skeet/modified installed), and 2 3/4 inch chambers with automatic ejectors. The blued action shows geometric engraving at the pivot pins and the toplever and features a single gold trigger and tang mounted manual safety. Nicely contrasting, multi-point checkered Schnabel forend and pistol grip stock with leather faced rubber recoil pad. Includes an extra set of 28 3/8 inch 20 gauge barrels numbered "97809" and featuring its own forend, 2 3/4 inch chambers, and interchangeable chokes (light modified/modified installed). Also includes a factory takedown case, extra mainsprings, four extra 20 gauge chokes (skeet, improved cylinder, improved modified, and full), and four extra 28 gauge chokes (improved cylinder, light modified, improved modified, and full). Barrel measurements for the extra set (U/O): bore diameter nine inches from the breech both proved at 16.0mm (.630 inches) and measured .628/.630 inches; minimum wall thickness .034/.036 inches. Barrel and stock measurements for the primary set (U/O): bore diameter nine inches from the breech both proved at 13.8mm (.543 inches) and both measured .547 inches; minimum wall thickness .041/.041 inches; 1 5/16 inch drop at comb; 1 15/16 inch drop at heel; 14 3/8 inch length of pull; weight 7 lbs 10 oz.
Excellent overall, retaining 99% original blue finish with very minimal handling evidence mostly on the wood and sharp checkering on the stock and forend. The extra barrel set is also excellent with a slight rub ahead of the forend. Mechanically excellent.
