Built in 1976. This gun has 26" blued steel dovetail barrels and 3" chambers. Barrels are fitted with ejectors, smooth concave tapered rib, and a size appropriate round steel front bead sight. Left barrel reads "Armi - Famars - Gardone V.T.". Bottom of left barrel reads "14.2" and with Italian proofs. Mid rib stamped "1 M1L". Bottom of right barrel reads "KG1,020 14.2" also with Italian proof marks. Barrel flats stamped "CAM. 76, FAMARS, SA, AB (in square), PSF (with * above), FINITO (with * star above)" and "30791" for serial number. Rear lump stamped Mario, Remo, Prim and Tony. Chokes are Skeet and Skeet. The brushed coin finished sidelock action is fitted with disc set strikers, no-auto safe, "SICURRA" in gold, single mechanical checkered trigger, and gas escape ports. Top lever and safety slide are engraved with fine scroll and both are checkered. Fences are chiseled with oak leaves. Sidelocks are engraved with border scrolls and rose bouquets and scrolls. Left lock with "FAMARS" in gold and right lock with "Gardone V.T." also in gold. Bottom action with matching scroll and "FAMARS" in gold. The single trigger is protected by a right hand rolled edged scroll engraved guard that extend through a long bottom strap with similar engraving and serial number "30791" in gold. A tan European walnut stock with English straight hand grip with fine point checkering has been fitted with a gold inlay of "JBE" on comb. Butt stock with matched fine checkering. Semi-beavertail forend with matched checkering has light scroll on borders of iron metal. Escutcheon is engraved with scrolls and Anson styled push button release is checkered.

CONDITION: Very good. Barrels retain nearly all of their original blue with a bit of forend rub and a very small bit of frosting at muzzle. Action is tight on face, ejectors are timed well, and trigger is crisp. Stock is very good with light handling marks and a slight bruise to checkering on right side of grip. Forend is very good with only a couple of small dings to gold shield. Case good. CP
