serial #209033, 12 ga., 30" barrels both choked full with bright about excellent bores which show a few spots with very light remnants of pinprick pitting. The barrels retain about 98% excellent quality restored blue, showing a few handling marks here and there and a couple light scratches on the rib, all very unobtrusive. There is very light engraving at the muzzles and two nice wedges of engraving at the breeches and on the rib extension. The barrels are marked "Sir Joseph Whitworth Fluid Compressed Steel" and "Made to Order by the Hunter Arms Company Fulton New York" with the rib showing a little engraved band of gold 2" from the breeches. This is a rather nice example showing the seldom-seen variation four, overall bold English scroll engraving. The frame and lockplates are a very pleasing silvery case-hardened patina showing generous traces of color along the upper tang. The lockplates and frame show very near overall lovely English scroll with game dog vignettes at the very front of the frame left and right; the belly of the frame showing slightly less coverage. The fences are nicely chiseled and engraved-in-relief with loose foliate scroll showing accenting background stippling. The breech faces retain the bushed firing pins, normally seen on 1905-era and earlier guns, clearly a transitional arm. The triggerguard shows the same lovely scroll and retains 98% restored blue. The English walnut scant pistolgrip buttstock rates about excellent as professionally refinished in a somewhat glossy finish, the checkering remaining unmolested and flat-top from the years of use. There are a couple of minor flakes or dings here and there with a small crack along the lower right front edge which seems stable. The forend is in a similar state of condition with its ebony tip intact, the checkering slightly less worn but does not appear to have been chased. The current length of pull to the 1" Pachmayr Olde English pad is 14 1/8" from the Hunter One Trigger showing drops of 1 3/4" and 2 5/8". Lockup is tight with the top lever still just to the right of center, the ejectors operate properly and crisply; the safety is non-automatic. Inspection of the tubes shows no wall measurement below .030". Overall a very lovely and very rare grade A2, style for manufactured in 1907 by the Hunter Arms Company, still tight and no doubt very usable. (36867-2)
