Circa 1986. An Italian over/under game gun with 2 sets of 28" monobloc barrels. (A) 20 bore and (B) 28 bore. The (A) is built with 3" chambers and (B) is built with 2 - 3/4" chambers. Both sets built with ejectors and machined, narrow, low-profiled ventilated ribs. Ribs with white round mid and front bead sights. Both sets of barrels are fit with Briley chokes and individual walnut game forends. Barrels both read "BESCHI MARIO GARDONE V.T. ITALY" on top left barrel. The coin-finished boxlock action is engraved with scrolls and games scenes. Game scenes are of grouse perched and flying through woods. Engraving signed by "MEMI". Action is fit with blacked engraved and checkered top lever, checkered and blacked safe slide, single mechanical gold washed trigger and gun is non-auto safe. Trigger is protected by a blacked engraved trigger guard that extends to a full-length engraved bottom strap with serial number "15158". The semi-glossed honey-colored European walnut stock is built with an English straight hand grip and finished with a Decelerator brownish-orange pad. Forends for both barrels match the stock and stock checkering well. Forends are built with blacked engraved Deeley styled latch releases. Exterior forend metals are scroll engraved. Gun and barrels live in a leather Beschi makers case with snap caps and spare chokes. CONDITION: Very good. Both sets of barrels retain mostly all of their original color and ejectors are in time. Action and trigger are sound. Trigger has lost lots of its gold coloring from use. Stock and forends are very good with only minor handling marks. Case is very good with some handling marks from storage and use. Good gun! CP
