MINE! And It will be here until my grandson's time to have it handed over to him.

It's in 8X57J

Yeah. I do like those hips.

She was made sometime between 1912 and 1916. I couldn't see a proof date but know enough about the gun to know it's that time frame.

Boy, the engraving on that rifle is REALLY impressive! I especially like the way that the wild boars were done.

Very nice indeed. I really like the clamshell double rifles and that one is particularly nice. It has a lovely scroll back and the engraving is really well done.

I recently got a Leupold M8-3X that will get a set of claw mounts fitted to this rifle as a second and far better scope than the old original optics. The guy who is my FFL receiving dealer was a master machinist for a large aerospace contractor and has an ultra modern shop here locally, where he makes complicated parts on contract. He said to bring the original scope and mounts, and he'll make me a set of 1" split ring claw mounts.

At 70 years old and counting, my eyes will welcome the 3X Loopy.
