Blued action, bbl. & mag. tube. Checkered walnut pistol grip w/ skeleton grip cap & buttplate. Checkered walnut forend. Gold trigger. A masterwork of renowned craftsman, Angelo Bee, you would be hard pressed to find an unengraved surface. Front & rear of action, action top & bottom are adorned w/ bold foliate scroll.

Gold wire surrounds all edges of the action as well as bbl. collar & trigger guard. Bolt & carrier are brightly jeweled. Serial number & forward facing arrow are in flush gold inlay. The mag. hanger & mag. cap as well as muzzle all have scroll engraving. It would be a shame to have Angelo spend all this time decorating the action w/out choosing another artisan of equal skill to craft the stock. And who better to complement Maestro Bee’s talents than one of a master of woodwork: John Bolliger. John chose a magnificent piece of English walnut w/ smoky highlights on a honey colored background that shows feather, contrast & marblecake in abundance. This spectacular stock is then magnificently checkered w/ multiple fleur de lis & swirling points all done in a tight pattern w/ stippling around numerous fleur de lis. The grip cap & buttplate are both skeletonized w/ more of Angelo's engraving & wire inlay on the metal surfaces surrounding more fine line checkering. CONDITION: bbl. & mag. tube show that the action has been opened to check it, otherwise all aspects near excellent as freshly complete by Angelo Bee. (18-4328/TB). 2) MODEL 12. Cal. 28 Ga.

All edges around receiver have received Angelo's touch w/ beautiful fine flush gold inlays. Serial number & forward pointing arrow also feature flush gold as does the muzzle. Bbl. breeches, hanger & muzzle all wear scroll engraving as well. Not to be forgotten, John Bolliger’s artistry with the stock & forend do nothing but highlight the beauty of this gun. Bolliger chose classically figured walnut that shows elegant smoke on honey figure w/ feather & marblecake abundant. Masterful checkering features multiple fleur de lis w/ ribbons on a swoopy type point pattern. Skeleton grip cap & buttplate show more of Angelo's work in gold wire & scroll w/ fine line checkering in the centers.
