description


Abbiatico y Salvinelli 28g Model 560 Sidelock Ejector 

Made for American businessman, Joe Bojalad, owner of TriEnergy Oil and Gas company of Pennsylvania and avid gun collector and important client to the fine gun trade. He was referred to A&S in the 1970’s and became a lifelong friend and client and he reportedly requested the two men make his guns under the name “Abbiactico y Salvinelli” (and not FAMARS). The guns made by A&S for Mr. Bojalad were made to the very highest standards representing the best A&S produced during the peak of their gunmaking.  

A&S Model 560 patented hammerless, sidelock ejector action is expertly shaped and scaled for the 28g. It has disk set strikers, manual safety, with a swept single trigger and rolled guard bow for a right-hand shooter. The lock plates, action body, and furniture are all polished with carving in an ornamental Italian scroll. The metal has a brushed, coin like finish highlighting the full coverage, deep relief acanthus pattern engraving signed “Inc. G. Ferrante” on the trigger plate. 

Gun has 1979 proof marks on 27” chopper lump steel barrels.  

The highly figured stock has a straight grip with a diamond shaped hand that has its ridge running from the back of the lockplates well into the thumb flute area and it is executed perfectly, a masterful detail by the stockmaker. Finished with a checkered butt and splinter forend with a push rod release, Both the forend and stock are finely checkered in what must be a 28 lpi pattern.  

Housed in the Maker’s lightweight leather case, this gun is an expression of both the engraver’s, as well as the gun maker’s, art. Not surprisingly, this gun is flawless in form, function, fit, and finish.
