BELGIAN SIDE BY SIDE TOP LEVER SPRING ASSISTED OPENER .410 DOUBLE BARREL SHOTGUN.
.410 Side by Side double barrel shotgun with hold open top lever opening. No actual makers name stamped but as with so many shotguns like this the Belgian proof stamps are about the only clue as to origin. This is a none ejector double trigger with fixed choke 28 1/8th barrels at cylinder and full and 2 ½” chambers. It is actually a quite nicely made little shotgun with spring assisted opening and though the bores are not as bright as I would like there is no major pitting as so often found in older .410 shotguns. The plain action is bright finished and sports a manual safety. Quite a nice straight grained, reasonably figured 14 ¼” stock is finished with a metal but plate and chequering, though not described as sharp is still well defined.
Not quite sure if the actual gun number is as low as 3 but both the action and barrel are stamped as such and if not it’s an NVN candidate.
Last one (?) similar to this was purchased by a gentleman who took it out on a small family /walked up shoot the day after he took delivery and accounted for something like 8 out of a total bag of 24 with 8 guns! To say he was happy is a major understatement.
Ideal for a smaller lady or youth OR as above a ‘perfect oddity’ to take out as a bit of great fun.
