Item Description: Translate description
serial #208252, 12 ga., 27 1/2” barrels choked I.C. and I.C. with very good bores which show remnants of a few minor dings and some light longitudinal scoring. The barrels do not appear cut and it is likely they are just slightly short 28s, there is one spot in the left tube which measures at .023”, the balance .025” or over. The barrels retain about 70% later blue, the entire right tube appears as though it has been lightly steel wool cleaned and is now a dull gunmetal gray showing evidence of some light oxidation and pinprick pitting. The hand matted rib is Hunter Arms Company marked and features the pigeon vignette at its rear extension; the top rib is loose and will need to be re-laid. The frame shows sprays of loose open scroll and banknote filigree borderline engraving. It shows an old light cleaning which has softened the engraving only very slightly and the receiver shows remnants of a one-time flaming in an effort to reproduce case-hardened colors. The lockplates are otherwise unmolested and are merely cleaned bright, very lightly so, with the engraving still sharp and the scenes crisp. The triggerguard shows 95% restored blue with some light oxidation and remnants of some light pitting. The checkered straight grip American walnut buttstock and beavertail style forend both rate about excellent, both showing some very lovely grain figure and are very nicely done replacements. The buttstock shows the very beginnings of some light cracks at the rear of the lockplates, these could easily be arrested. The gun seems to lock up tightly and the Hunter one-trigger works appropriately; the ejectors seem slightly weak. The length of pull to the 1” ventilated white line recoil pad is 14 3/8” with drops of 1 5/8” and 2 3/4”. The barrels are slightly off face, both left and right showing a sliver of light, more prevalent on the left tube; the gun is not automatic-safety equipped. A nice pigeon grade overall that could stand a bit of restoration work and would certainly be very worthy of the effort. (36815-45)

Estimate: 2000 - 3000
