4.450 €*
Octagonal, blued barrel with engraved breech plud  and two reciprocating pistons. Three visor flaps, dovetail front sight. Underside of barrel stamped cal. 13.6 as well as M.LHOEST and various test marks, similar to the Ferlacher test mark. Bright, four times rifled barrel. Groove 14.3 mm, field 13.6 mm. Ramrod rail. Hook-in locks with fine vine leaves engraving, both locks with bow ties. Fittings finely engraved with vine leaves over the entire surface. Finely grained walnut stock with checkering and horn finish. Trigger with internal pressure pin that is actuated by the follower and controls the automatic lock switching. With the single trigger, the charges lying one behind the other in the course can be ignited independently. Presumably it is a master or exhibition piece that was never delivered, as the rear sight blades are still without a groove and dimensions. The gun is ready for use thanks to the proof mark. Length 116 cm. Excellent, almost unused original condition.
