In order to be "Set For Life" one might entertain doing some driven shooting in Scotland, and of course would need a matched pair. This gun is the #1 gun in the set of 12ga guns. It is engraved "I" on rear portions of ribs, top levers, and forend tips. This gun has well struck 28" barrels with slightly raised matted game rib which is engraved "Flli PIOTTI ITALY" on sides of left barrels. Barrel flats are stamped with 1996 Italian nitro proofs; Bottoms of barrels are stamped with chambers, importer, and model. Coin finished sidelock action features non-automatic safeties, raised arrowhead tumbler end cocking indicators, and double triggers (front articulated). Action and lockplates are engraved with very well cut minuscule shaded scroll which covers full area of actions with the exception of beads, which are left unengraved. Lockplates are also fully covered with scroll. This close work is very finely executed and stands up well to 10X magnification. Engravers signature, G Ranetti, is on trigger plate. Single beaded trigger guard is also scroll engraved, Serial number are on tang. Dark finely marbled European walnut straight grip buttstock measures 15" over black KICKEEZ pads which is perfectly matched with the #2 gun in this set as can be seen in the following lot. Very well cut, closely spaced point pattern checkering is on diamond hands. Matching small beavertail ejector forend has Anson release. CONDITION: Excellent, close to new, with evidence of very little firing, with only minute minor marks and scratches in finish on wood and metal surfaces with the exception a few light scratches near breech area which appear to be mostly from safe wear, not use. Bores are excellent. Mechanically excellent.
