This is a beautiful gun! I can attest that the pictures are nice but do this gun justice! You have to see this thing in real life; it is stunningly beautiful and it fits like a dream in the hand. I have zero doubt that Dave (or myself) will shoot this gun lights out at clays or game!
It's a very nice piece! Nicer than my pay grade, but not much more than a new Citori. The owner paid $4500 for it in 2013, and I bought it for something under $2100. It has 27 5/8" (70mm) barrels and weighs 6 3/4 lbs. The chokes are neatly marked under the forearm as "1/4 & 3/4". Despite varying opinions I'm very happy with the weight and handling. This is right in my wheelhouse for my best field shooting, and it will be comfortable at the range. The grips are slim, but it has a little heft which makes for a great shooting 16. These are built on the same triggerplate action as their double rifles, so I'm thinking it will be pretty durable.
That is a hell of a gun for the price you paid. I hope you shoot it well. Beautiful!

Thanks for the kind words. Like I mentioned, I had mid-weight 16 ga. OU on my bucket list and this one just popped up and pushed all the right buttons. It will see a lot of pheasant hunting and sporting clays. Here's a couple more photos. Pardon the busy background on the first two. I'm reorganizing some ice fishing tackle. (the horror!)
