This double rifle has been for sale here in Finland quite a long time. Price is 16,500€. Rifle is quite old because it has been ordered in 1910-11 by british officer who serves at that time in Nigeria. After being wounded he sold the rifle to swedish ship captain.

Current owner bought this rifle on 1986 and tells that he had shot with it very seldom, less than 50 times. Rifle has been maintained by W:m Evans in the beginning of 1990´s. Barrels are 28" long and rifle weight approximate 11 pounds i.e. 5,2 kg. Price includes 220 pieces Kynoch ammo and leather case (not original). Rifle shoots 20 mm group to 100 meter.

Very nice piece of kit indeed!
If it groups as you were told then it will be an exceptional rifle Igorrock!
Love that finer filigree engraving.
