Good guns at fair prices have a tendency to sell fast. Sometimes, just how fast amazes me. This rare, 28 Gauge pre-war Diamond Grade Gebruder Adamy O/U popped up on Gunsinternational yesterday and sold in less than 24 hours.
It’s easy to see why. It’s a beautiful little shotgun and it looks like it’s in excellent original condition. The price on it was pretty fair, too. I think it was $4950.
Gebruder Adamy is a German gunmaker who has been in business since 1921. According to the seller’s listing, this shotgun was made in 1925. It was made for the American market and it may have been imported by a company’s like Sloan’s Sporting Goods or Abercrombie & Fitch. I really like the straight grip and the double triggers. I bet the gun’s new owner will like them, too. He got himself a great little shotgun.
Here’s more info on it from the seller’s listing:
Mirror bores. Bottom barrel is .544 with 7/1000 choke while top barrel is .543 with 8/1000 choke – solid IC chokes. Double underbite locking system with Kersten cross bolt system on top – very strong. Gun is an extractor – good way to save those 28 Gauage hulls! Solid tapered rib 15/32″ to 10/32″. Gun was made in 1925 per the date code. Weight of the gun is 5 Lbs. 7 3/4 OZ. LOP – 13 5/8″, Drop at Comb – 1 1/2″, Drop at Heel – 2 3/4″.
