28" Demi-bloc barrels fitted with flat matted ventilated rib are engraved "Boss & Co 13 Dover Street, Piccadilly, London W." on left side. Rib has lunate extension. Barrel flats are stamped with London proofs for 2-1/2" chambers. Low profile, Boss patent over-under action features non-automatic safety, gold band tumbler end cocking indicators, and Boss single non-selective trigger. Action is engraved in Boss house style with near full coverage exceptionally well cut varying sized, but small, shaded scroll surrounding rose bouquets in the manner of, and most likely executed by the noted, Jack Sumner. "Boss & Co" is on ribands on each lockplate. Action patent information is on each side. Ejector patent information is on bottom of forend iron, and trigger patent information is on trigger plate. Newly made straight grip buttstock is of nicely marbled and well figured European walnut. It measures 14-3/8" over checkered wood butt, and features drop points, point pattern checkering at grip, and a gold oval on toe line engraved "GJ". Matching newly stocked forend has Anson release. Gun is number two of a pair with "2" in gold on top lever and forend tip. Gun is housed in good quality tan leather case with stitched leather corners which is lined in burgundy cloth. A Boss paper label is in lid. Case contains cleaning equipment, Boss marked square oil bottle and two plastic snap caps. Good to fine, as refurbished. Barrels retain essentially all of a London quality re-black. Action cleaned to coin finish, engraving remains clear. New stocks retain essentially all of their original finish with some light marks. Workmanship is good but not of factory quality. Bores are excellent. Action is tight. Barrels are on face. Ejectors are out of time, ejectors will not remain cocked, so forend is difficult to remove and replace, especially when barrels are not attached to action. Trigger appears to work well. Relatively new case is excellent. Interior is very fine, with some rubs.
