Description: A. Francotte Engraved Boxlock SxS 12 Gauge. Manufactured in Belgium. The 30" barrels with extractor are chambered for 2 3/4" shells and choked light-full (.030) & modified (.018), and the solid, tapered and matted rib has intermediate and front ivory bead sights. The right barrel is stamped "VON LENGERKE & DETMOLD" and the left barrel is stamped "U.S. AGENTS NEW-YORK". A double trigger gun with tang safety with a gold inlaid "S". The Anson & Deeley boxlock designed action with Greener crossbolt features fine scroll engraving with an oak leaf pattern on the fences. The scroll engraving extends to the trigger guard and lower tang, safety and lever, as well as the forearm hardware. The receiver is marked on both sides with "A. FRANCOTTE MAKER & PATENTEE / LIEGE BELGIUM". The pistol gripped French walnut stock and splinter forearm, with Anson push-button release, are nicely figured with light to dark contrasting color and both have fine checkering, and the butt sports a black KICK-EEZ recoil pad.
The shotgun is in very good condition for its 80 to 90 years of age. The barrels retains nearly all of their original blue finish with just a slight hint of brown patina. The trigger guard retains most of the original blue but is showing some light thinning on the extended tang. The coin finish action is bright and shiny and the engraving is deep and crisp with virtually no wear. The wood is in very good condition overall, there is some light oil staining where action meets wood, and the stock was refinished by a professional at some point with a satin oil finish. There are some light/superficial handling marks that show under close scrutiny. The pistol-grip-end has a silver name plate with HDM initials. Shotgun weighs 6 Lbs. 14 Ozs., and stock measurements are LOP: 13 7/8"; DAC: 1 3/4" & DAH: 2 3/4".
