Unique African game scenes are engraved on the silver-greyed receiver by master engraver 'Silke Henke'. The right side shows a rhino in an African plain setting and the left side shows a very lifelike water buffalo in a forest setting. Beautifully done floral scroll surrounds these and extends to the trigger guard and forend latching hardware.
Straight, powerful grains run straight from the receiver to the butt in this select peice of European walnut. A well done, functional cheek piece is featured along with a pistol grip.
Retail for this gun is over $13,500. Dealer cost is over $10,200. This is a serious bargain!
