Here’s a great double that coming up at Morphy Auctions on Tuesday, Feb 5, 2019. The auction starts at 9:00 AM Eastern.
As the auctioneer states, these guns were made in Italy by B. Rizzini for Sigarms (Sig Sauer) and the retailed by L.L. Bean. I’ve always thought they were great looking double and great deals. This one looks little used, and it even comes with its original case, chokes tubes, and accessories.
