Beautifully figured, multi-point checkered walnut splinter forearm with engraved fittings including the Deeley latch release and straight grip stock with carved flats, blank inscription oval, and engraved skeletonized buttplate around checkered bare butt. Includes a second set of matching serial numbered 26 inch 28 gauge barrels with a "2" on the lump, 2 3/4 inch chambers with ejectors, and chokes marked "Q1"/"Q2".

Rating Definition:

Excellent overall, retaining 99% plus original blue finish and case colors with limited handling marks, a couple spots of dried grease on both barrel sets, and crisp engraving and stock checkering. Mechanically needs adjustment as only the selected barrel will fire without recocking and selecting the other barrel manually. Box and case are very fine with storage and handling marks.
