Barrels with swamped game rib engraved "RESERVE" have factory markings on tops. Case hardened round bodied specially designed small sized RBL action features automatic safety and gold-plated single selective trigger. Action is "engraved" with near full coverage scroll with floral highlights surround dog and game scenes; setter on left, pointer on right, and flushing grouse on bottom. Trigger plate is marked "RBL - 28". Striking, crotch figured American walnut straight grip buttstock measures 14-1/2" over composition buttplate. Matching splinter ejector forend has Anson type release and gold-plated ejector work. Gun is accompanied by its original gold canvas leather trimmed case lined in burgundy cloth. A CSM label marked "RBL 28" is in lid. Case contains cleaning equipment, snap caps, and square oil bottle, as well as straps. Excellent, very close to new, with only the faintest of handling and assembly marks in all factory finishes. Mechanically crisp. Case is excellent in all respects. These well engineered guns have gained considerable respect. The single selective trigger has been discontinued. From the G. Thomas Puett Collection. CORRECTION: The Fausti Factory Letter states that serial No. RBL003800 is listed as a Class SL, 28 gauge, 2-3/4" chamber, 28" barrel, pistol grip stock, select walnut, oil polished with matching round forend, equipped with extractors, single set trigger, standard engraving, a 7mm rib and shipped with five choke tubes.
