Over the last 184 years, the firm of W.W. Greener has made thousands of guns. Most of the ones we say today are shotguns like this and Martini rifles like this. What we don’t see a lot of are W.W. Greener double rifles, especially ones as nice and crisp as this .400/.360.

This Greener looks pretty much new – quite a feat considering it’s about 100 years old. Here’s the seller’s complete description of it:
