Blued steel barrels with a single brass bead sight on the smooth solid rib which is marked "WATSON & HANCOCK 308 HIGH HOLBORN LONDON", light engraving at the breech, and chambers measured 3 inches with single extractor. Per the consignor, the gun was rebarreled by Griffin & Howe using the original breech section. The casehardened hammer fired action features fine scroll engraving, rebounding hammers, and double triggers. Beautifully figured, multi-point checkered splinter forend with engraved fittings and straight grip stock with teardrop flats, "BLC" in the inscription oval, and checkered buttplate. Includes a leather bound takedown case. Stock measurements (R/L): 1 5/16 inch drop at comb; 2 1/16 inch drop at heel; 14 11/16 inch length of pull; weight 5 lbs. 5 oz.
Very fine as professionally restored, retaining 97% blue and casehardened finishes with minor handling evidence and a few small rubs on the barrels. The wood is very good with a few light dings and scratches, some chipping and repair on the forend, and sharp recut checkering. The case is very good. Mechanically excellent.
