Boss, London. Exceptionally fine matched pair of consecutively numbered vintage light weight assisted-opening 12ga. game guns made in 1921. Each gun weighs in at just 6 lbs. Stock dimensions: 14 x 1 x 2 x 3/8 cast-off. Both guns have superb 28 chopper lump steel barrels with original 2 chambers. Bores are brilliant and absolutely mint, all measuring .728. All chokes are Modified ( choke) measuring .023 in each barrel which corresponds to the original specifications from 1921. Wall thicknesses are .034/.034 in the no.1 gun and .032/.032 in gun no.2. Best bar-action side lock actions with double underlugs, ejectors, double triggers and automatic safetys. Beautifully engraved actions retain much of the original hardening colors and all engraving is crisp and sharp as if cut yesterday. The barrels retain 98% of the original black finish. Trigger guard tangs have been reblacked but the black on the bows is original. Highly figured matching straight grip stocks with checkered butts and splinter forends retain all the original finish with all checkering sharp showing virtually no use. Original makers case with original labels and some accessories. Overall an absolutely stunning pair of vintage, pre-war, Boss guns remaining in little used near-mint original condition and almost impossible to find in this condition today. Replacement cost today well in excess of $200,000.
