Greener  Special Grade

W.W. Greener  "Special Grade"  #68708

first gun built in 1930. Auto ejector boxlock heavy game/ Pigeon gun built on the Facile Princeps action with F-75 engraving. However the engraving is the only aspect of this gun that is F-75, all else is a Greener Best. W.W. Greener's  top guns were known as "Presentation" and sometime "Exhibition" or "Special Grade" as described in the Greener book. All the internals of the action and fore-end are gold washed. As the photos show This gun has exhibition wood, a recessed cross-bolt, rolled trigger guard inscribed with "SPECIAL GRADE" and all packaged in a deluxe case with more accessories than any other gun seen in Greener's book. Accessories include buffalo horn handled turn screws and chamber brush, a pull- through in its leather case, an ivory handled action brush, a three piece ebony cleaning rod with jags, a large WW GREENER marked oil tank with snap caps and finally Greener's answer to the question" What do you give to a gun that already has everything?"- a combination cartridge extractor and dog whistle fitted into the case. Barrels are 30 inches with 3 inch "English Magnum" chambers and original 1 1/2 oz proof and measuring Right/Left bores .734/.734; chokes .021/.040 and walls .030/.032. Best quality semi pistol grip stock measures 14 1/4 x 1 3/4 x 3 x 1/8 cast off to ebony and horn butt plate. All in virtually unused condition. Included is the original certificate of award to present owner from the Concourse d 'Elegance International Gun Competition for Bragging Rights. A rare gun that rarely comes on the market at any price.
