This outstanding quality and elegant Italian hammer gun has 28" chopper lump barrels fitted with slightly raised matted concave rib. Tops of barrels are engraved with gauge, chamber, and length on right, and "New England Arms Co" on left. Barrel flats are stamped with 1974 Italian nitro proofs for 2 - 3/4" chambers and with Lucchini logo. Coin finished top lever self-cocking sidelock hammer action features non-automatic safety, vented strikers, and double triggers. Fences are traditionally filed, and action is engraved with 80% coverage well cut small scroll. Bottom of action is engraved "CUSTOM - GUNMAKER" "S. LUCCHINI". Sandro Lucchini is a well known best quality arms manufacturer who produces an extremely limited quantity of double guns annually. A flush gold inlaid woodcock is on trigger guard bow. Engravers signature, "Tanteglini S", is on trigger plate. Strikingly marbled and somewhat burl figured flesh toned European walnut straight grip buttstock measures 15 - 1/8" over fully checkered wood butt. Closely spaced point pattern checkering is on semi-diamond hand. Matching splinter ejector forend has Anson release. Gun is housed in tan leather case with brass corners. A silver embossed black leather Lucchini label is in lid. Interior is lined in burgundy cloth. Bottom compartment is semi-French fitted for gun, barrels, and accessories with only the oil bottle present. CONDITION: Excellent with evidence of careful field use. Barrels retain 90-95% original blue, thinning from normal hand wear on sides, high edges silvered, and with a few light marks and scratches. Action retains nearly all of its well maintained bright coin finish. Stocks have a few minor marks with slight wear on sharp edges, checkering lightly worn and a bit dark. Bores are excellent. Action has a hint of looseness with forend removed. Ejectors are in time. Case leather is excellent with some scuffs. Straps and handle are fine. Interior cloth has a few light rubs. TDW
