Cal. 28 Ga. A fine example of this legendary gun. The original intention of producing this model was as a crowd pleaser for exhibition purposes. The gun garnered so much interest that in 1979 they produced a limited run of 15 of them, and a second run of 15 in 1983. 27-1/2? Chopper lump barrels have narrow concave game rib with crossbolted doll’s head extension. Top left bbl is marked “Abbiatico & Salvinelli”. Bbl flats are stamped with Italian nitro proofs for 1979, “A & S”, and “Abbiatico Salvinelli”. Bottom of rear lump is stamped with “Dante Mario” and “Remo Tony”. Intricately sculpted action with tall standing breech and non-automatic safety (“S” inlaid in gold), has four locks. On initial examination it appears to be a very tall hammer gun with two back action rebounding locks. These locks have very nicely filed serpentine hammers which fire the top two bbls. Bottom 2 bbls are fired by Anson/ Deeley type internal hammers. Amazingly, all four bbls are fired by a single non-selective trigger which fires in the order of top right, top left, bottom right, bottom left. Action, lockplates, and hammers are engraved with about 60% coverage exceptionally well cut fine shaded scroll, with rose bouquet highlights. Both sides of action bar are inlaid in gold with “Abbiatico & Salvinelli”. Area under top lever is inlaid in gold with “3/15”, indicating that this is no. 3 of a run of 15 guns. Matching scroll engraved trigger guard has SN inlaid in gold on tang. A & S house engravers, “Bruno & Marco” signatures are on trigger plate. Trigger itself is decoratively filed. Finely marbled and slightly figured stump European walnut pistol grip buttstock measures 14-3/8? over brown pad, and features drop points as well as 32 LPI checkering with line border. Matching splinter forend has Anson release. “A & S” gold shield device is inletted into open central diamond in forend checkering pattern.
