Fine Italian sidelock 12ga shotgun by Perazzi in Brescia Italy. This shotgun comes complete with (2) 28″ vent rib barrel sets, same length with 2 different fixed choke patterns. Each barrel is inlaid with gold either “I” or “II” to differentiate from each. Barrels have a single silver bead front sight and set “I” also has a middle sight. Made from Acciaio Phonix steel with a demibloc weld at breech, arguably one of the strongest barrel set types made. Barrel flats stamped “XXI” to reflect the year made, 1965. Also marked with several proofings, matching serial and model name. Forend is diamond checkered in the ultra fine pattern and metal components are nicely blued. Frame and side locks are highly engraved with a deep relief of gargoyles, creatures, finished in a eye appealing and durable coin silver. Single trigger, selective ejectors, loaded chamber indicators inlaid with gold. Non auto safety. Blued trigger guard, safety, and top lever with fantastic carving of dragon like creature. The engraving is a work of art by master engraver Galeazzi (signed by trigger). Straight English stock, checkered in the same ultra fine diamond pattern, finished in a semi gloss hard coating (lacquer). Rubber recoil pad. Appropriate leather trunk. Must ship to FFL or C&R
