There is 'just the right amount' of hand engraved Arabesque scroll on this beautiful color case hardened steel receiver. All screws are engraved and perfectly aligned in the North/South position. Both barrel sets, the trigger guard, forend latching hardware and the tang have a contrasting gloss blue finish.
Absolutely breathtaking Luxus grade, European walnut is used for the pistol grip, Monte Carlo stock and BOTH forearms. From an amber color, to a dusty brown, to a striking chocolate all possible patterns flow over the stock and the two matched forearms. Flawless checkering on the grip surfaces and a gloss finish compliments what Mother Nature has already done. The stock was balanced in such a way that it is amazingly compatible to the shotgun barrels and the heavier rifle barrels.
This fine firearm comes New in the Box with owner's manual. Call with any questions and see our other listings for ... "Only the best!"
