Very nice F. Castellani 12ga Game gun – a hand made, hand engraved full sidelock gun of very fine quality

Very nice F. Castellani 12ga Game gun – a hand made, hand engraved full sidelock gun of very fine quality: Proofed in 1985, this full sidelock and nicely rose and scroll engraved gun exhibits very fine quality.  The gun, made with 28-1/2″ fluid steel barrels with splinter forend.  The splinter forend made with Anson type pushbutton release is checkered in point pattern.  The coin finished action is nicely engraved in very fine rose and scroll engraving.  The blued top lever is also very nicely scroll engraved as seen in the photos.  Straight english grip buttstock is nicely point pattern checkered.  The buttstock terminates with a finely checkered butt. Overall, the gun remains in excellent original condition.  Barrels retain more than 97% original blue with brilliant shiny bores.  Action is excellent with nearly all of its fine original coin finish remaining.  Stocks are sound with only minor handling marks and retain nearly all of their original finish with only a couple of minor light impressions.  Top lever well right of center.  Mechanics are crisp, ejectors snap with authority and the gun is nice and tight. This is an exceptionally nice and high quality full sidelock gun which is well finished and deserving of great merit.  The gun is very reasonably priced and should be valued much higher.  Price: $4,195
