W. R. Pape, Newcastle on Tyne. Superb 12ga. side lock hammer gun made in 1878. Weight: 7 lbs. 14 oz.  LOP 14”.  Finest 30” damascus barrels with good bores (.721”/.722”), recess choked, and excellent wall thickness (.045”/.046”).  Beautiful action with double underlugs and hidden third fastener. Highest quality bar-action, rebounding hammer, side locks retain virtually all the brilliant original hardening colors as does the action. Highly figured pistol-grip stock, with engraved gold shield at the wrist, and splinter forend show little use and certainly no abuse. Absolutely impeccable quality throughout and near mint original condition.
