I think I have mentioned before on this blog how special it was to watch rash execute fine scroll, it was literally a joy to watch the speed and confidence with which he worked when 'on a good day'. The scroll on this pair of guns is particularly fine as you can see below, these are 20g guns and small frames, the scroll is very delicate and all perfectly shaded. I can assure you there are not many people who can execute this type of scroll with such flair and character. Rash never relied on a compass and other drawing instruments but solely by eye, penciling in a rough design and then attacking it with vigour, the engraving vice would swirl and spin rapidly when he was at his bench, the final result of the work was always so worth the wait.
I think this is a superb opportunity for someone who is considering a pair of 20's. The guns are as new, cased and priced less than our standard guns now, so the deluxe engraving by Rash, single triggers and exhibition wood all come in with the price!

This is, for me, about as good as it can get. Scalloped action, pair, 28", hand detachable, ability to adjust choke, Gold Name, with that fine scroll by a known and named wonderful engraver. These guns will only look better with care,age, and use. This is without question my favorite configuration!!
