VOSTOCK 12G OVER AND UNDER MU 8-01 SHOTGUN.

Russian made 12g Box Lock Single Trigger None Ejector Over and Under Shotgun by Vostock.

29 ½” (750mm) Multi Choke Barrels currently fitted with ¼ and ½ chambered 2 ¾” (70mm). A ¼” (6mm) raised and ventilated rib with a single front sight bead. Pull length is a good 14 ½” (368mm) which includes the 1” (25mm) ‘Kick-Eez’ recoil pad. Overall length measures to a straight 47” (1194mm) and a Solid weight of 8 Lbs 4 ½ oz (3.756 Kg). A Scallop Backed Black Finished Action over Full Scroll Work Engraving. As you might expect from Russia, built to withstand a nuclear bomb. Triple lock up including double cross bolt at the top.

The Stock has some Very Nice Grain Pattern. It also features a height adjustable cheek piece with some lateral twist movement too for that perfect fit. Not too sure exactly what timber it is but it is bonny as well as dense and hard. In reality probably better than most standard walnut as it does look to be wearing exceptionally well.

OK, a none ejector. WOW!

Even as a dedicated clay gun WHY anyone wants an ejector is beyond me. Take you position. Load the chambers. Close the gun and tuck it under your arm. Call pull, see the clay/s, mount the gun, get on line, pull through and squeeze…BANG… BANG! Lets say both are small clouds of dust…WELL DONE YOU. Now, break the gun. MOST people position their palm over the chambers to stop the damned shells from getting thrown out. I ask AGAIN why the ‘fascination’ with ejectors?

To those unfamiliar with these SOUGHT AFTER, COLLECTABLE and RARE guns. The screws to the action and forend ARE BY DESIGN and how the gun was made. There is also some INTERESTING reading to be had on line with details of some quite prestigious history. These guns were used to win Olympic and World Competition Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals.

EXTREMELY well made with the real High Grade examples sporting SUPERB Hand Engraving and found in the highest collections. Do a little research on line and some lucky people have some beautiful examples.

HELP! :

NOW, there MUST be a knack to removing the barrels. Anyone out there with the knowledge PLEASE drop me a line. The inset lever to the bottom back of the forend is / appears spring loaded with two positions. However, neither appears to release the barrels, or anything else for that matter. I do not want to try forcing things and cause possible damage so any information would be welcome. NOW SORTED. THANK YOU TO BOTH CUSTOMERS FOR TAKING THE TIME.

 

Given prices showing elsewhere in the world this is MORE than fare.
