Master engraver 'Susanne Patheo' executed and signed the totally lifelike engraving on this silver-greyed receiver. Beautiful African landscape scenes with 'touchable' vegetation covers both sides, and featured in the foreground is a lifelike rhino on the right side and a male lion on the left. Exquisite Arabesque scroll covers the bottom of the receiver, the trigger guard and the forend latching hardware.
Luxus Grade European walnut with a deep lustrous finish is used for the pistol grip stock and forearm. A functional, well designed Monte Carlo cheek piece is the final touch of perfection.
This one-of-a-kind firearm retails for over $14,000 and dealer cost is over $11,200. This is a remarkable value.
