F.E. Malin 20g Victoria Grade SLE | WR Used Guns

F.E. Malin 20g Victoria Grade SLE

Serial Number FE009



F.E. Malin & Son 20g "Victoria Grade" Sidelock Ejector Two Barrel Set.  

Bar action sidelock with nicely filed square bar, two triggers (front one hinged), automatic safety, hidden third-bite, and disk set strikers.  
Sideplates and action body are engraved in traditional small scroll with a gold inlaid flushing woodcock on the left lock and a flying quail on the right lock. Fences are carved with maple leaves (canadian maker). The bottom of the action has "Victoria Grade" inlaid in gold as is the word "SAFE" in the appropriate place.  

Two sets of chopper lump barrels, both with smooth concave game ribs, with double gold bands on the muzzles and at the breeches along with engraved scroll wedges also at the breeches. The 26" barrels are choked Cyl/Skeet and the 28" barrels are choked Mod/Full and back bored by the maker. Original 1981 Birmingham proof marks show the 26" barrels proofed at .615" and measuring .618" in both barrels. The 28" barrels are proofed at .626" and measure .629" in the right barrel and .634" in the left barrel. The maker's name and address in Canada are engraved on the top ribs and "1" stamped on the rear lump of the 28" barrels and "2" stamped on the rear lump of the 26" barrels. 

The gun has a nicely figured straight hand grip with traditional drop points, a 15 1/4" LOP over a leather covered pad, point pattern checkering with Mullered borders. One splinter forend for both sets of barrels has an Anson push rod. 
The Gun weighs 6 lbs. 4 oz. with either set of barrels attached.  
Gun is nicely presented in a Huey two-barrel, flat, O&L case with french fitted accoutrements and the Maker's leather trade label in the lid.  
While the name is not easily recognizable, I have handled a fair amount of these guns and they are very well made, handsome guns that represent a lot of value in a SLE.
