Who here has heard of a gun maker named Fred Adolph from Genoa NY. I hear he made some nice sxs shotguns.

Now, thats an "upgrade."  The metal work is pretty neat but I am really left wanting on the wood "carving"

Bit out of my budget and besides, the barrels are too short anyway....  LOL

I agree with you, I don’t care for the woodcarving either, and its defiantly out of my price range! Just bored on blustery sat morning and was just wondering about this obscure gun manufacture.

Even if it were a matched pair it would be out of my price range, but I do like it!  Good example of really ornate, old-style, German engraving and the carving on the wood doesn't even turn me off. I like guns that many would consider almost garish, and this one certainly borders on it.  For that kind of money though I'd like to see more figure in the wood...and maybe a hollow stock stuffed with hundred dollar bills!! :D

Agree with Don, the wood has very little figure. I like the engraving of the metal,  but the wood is something else. The carving looks crude and does not fit with the quality of the metal work.  I can think of a lot of other things to spend $19,000+ on.

I'm ok with the wood carving but would ditch the pheasant.

The pheasant is the reason it cost $19,000+. :D
