Description: Johann Springer 12 Gauge SxS Shotgun


General Specs: Johann Springer, Year 1903, 12 Gauge, 6lbs 13oz, Side by Side

Serial Number: 151-10

Joh. Springer is one of the finest names in Continental sporting arms creating their masterpieces in Austria's famed gun center. This beautiful boxlock 12 bore is one from the turn of the 20th century, manufactured around 1903, sn51-10. It is a wonderfully balanced,6 3/4lb. game gun with gorgeous and healthy damascus barrels stretching out to 29 1/2". The engraving is superbly executed rose and scroll covering 70% of the action and an equal amount of the original case colors. The action has four locking mechanisms, including a Greener style cross bolt, double underlug bites, with additional stability provided by a through action barrel lug and side clips. The butt stock is contained at the head of the stock in nicely done rebates at the top of the frame. The triggers are crisp, and the trigger guard is case colored. The English style stock has been restored to perfection with a hand rubbed oil finish, nice figure, no cracks or repairs, and perfect wood to metal fit. The gun is stunning with sharp checkering and crisp damascus pattern on the barrels. It is easy to say this is a great value in a fine European masterpiece and would be at home at the clays range or in the field. One of the most ELEGANT 12 BORES WE HAVE HAD IN YEARS, and at a very affordable price! Thanks for looking.
