This gun was custom made for my grandfather when he purchased it new in 1985, with Etched Silverplating, Marborg Scope and Custom Fitted Locking Storage Box. My grandfather was a sharp shooter in the army and did fire the gun at a target to verify accuracy when it arrived. It has not been shot since. The original target is in the box, as well as all the original paperwork and brochure.
Please review the pictures carefully. I would be more than happy to email additional pictures to a SERIOUS inquiry.
My sister and I inherited this gun when our father recently passed. We would consider a reasonable offer,but please do not insult us. The gun has been appraised twice at $10K and we have been in direct contact with the US distributer to make sure we are in the same "ball park". If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to ask. I will do my best to answer, but am not well educated on this type of gun.
