Shoe lump barrels are fitted with full length matted rib, mid-portion milled away forming quarter rib and front ramp. A one standing one folding leaf U-notch rear sight and silver bead sourdough front have been installed. Milled out portion of quarter rib is engraved "Safari .470 N.E." Barrel flats are stamped with German nitro proofs for .470 Nitro Express. A sling loop is screwed to bottom rib. Ogee backed coin finished boxlock action features non-automatic safety, crossbolt third fastener, bushed strikers, side clips, reinforced frame, pin type cocking indicators, and double triggers. Action is "engraved" with scattered scroll and geometric borders. Suhl blacksmith logo is on trigger plate. Relatively plain European walnut capped pistol grip buttstock measures 15" over black Decelerator pad, and features right hand cheekpiece, point pattern checkering, and a sling loop matching that on barrel. Matching splinter forend has Deeley release. Weight: 10 lbs 15 oz. Excellent condition, very close to new, appears essentially unfired since proof, with only a few exceptionally light handling and assembly marks in all factory finishes. Bores are excellent. Mechanically crisp. Gun is housed in a tan Browning Hartman case lined in faux fur. Case is very fine.
