H. Pieper 12ga./.44-40 combo rifle - FABULOUS!  Guns > Shotguns > Drilling & Combo Shotgun Rifle Combos
Description: Serial #37,xxx (matching on receiver, forend hardware and barrels). Side locks marked: "H. PIEPER". Barrels marked, "H. PIEPER PATENTED APRIL 23, 1881". Receiver, barrel and forend hardware all marked, "12 44" Barrel also marked "10.4" (under rifle barrel) and "17.8" (under shotgun barrel) which must of course, refer to millimeters. Barrels are 30 inches and bores are very good plus showing some minor pitting but shotgun bore has a good amount of shine left and rifle bore shows very strong rifling. Barrels are fitted with original front and rear sights and show about 98% blue. Raised knurled rib is very nice. Some engraving on end of barrel and a small amount at of of chamber area. Action shows some nice splotches of bright case color. Wood and checkering are excellent. Wood to metal fit is excellent except top and bottom of the buttplate is slightly proud over the wood. Screws are excellent. Tight as a drum. A fabulous collectable and very rare in an American caliber. Note that the pictures are taken in very bright sunlight with a high resolution camera. This can certainly highlight scratches etc. Contrast this with auctions that just show one picture and that is blurry - I take a lot of pictures so you can see what you are buying.
