Sempert & Krieghoff #9570 Circa 1926

 

"MONACO II" 16 bore sidelock with ejectors and side clips. Full medium scroll engraving and banner on locks with manufacturer's name. 29 1/2 "  barrels with 2 5/8 " chambers and wide hand filed concave rib, measure bores R/L .673/.672 (original bore proofs are 16/1 or .669 diameter); chokes .025/.032; walls .025/.024. The high quality walnut stock with pistol grip, horn grip cap and cheek piece, measures 14 x 1 1/2 x 3 1/4 x 1/4 cast off to its horn butt plate.. The extreme 3 1/4 drop at heel is due to the "rational stock" design which projects an actual 2 1/2 true drop at heal. Also the great 1/4 " cast off is reduced to 1/8 by the cheek piece. Therefore stock is of normal dimensions and very usable by most shooters. Weight is 6-14. As near new. Cased in a leather valise with grease pot and new 16 bore snap caps.
