Merkel 203E Luxus Gold SLE – 16ga – 28” – IC/M – Spectacular German Field Gun ca. 1955 – Beautiful

Merkel 203E Luxus Gold SLE – 16ga – 28” – IC/M – Spectacular German Field Gun ca. 1955 – Beautiful: Spectacular German Field Gun ca. 1955 – Beautiful Shotgun with some field experience – wood and metal show field evidence – a hairline crack in the stock toe (easy fix $200) – 14 3/8 x 1 1/2 x 2 1/2 – 6.10 lbs – I’ve not polished the patina on the Sidelock Plates because I feel it may disturb the nostalgia of the gun – if polished and wood refinished the gun would look like a blue ribbon shotgun – but I like it the way it is… very slender 16ga for the discerning upland shooter/collector. Price: $21,000

Overall, the gun remains in near mint original condition retaining nearly all of its original finish to both wood and metal.  Mechanics are crisp and bores are brilliant and shiny.  Price: $17,000
