'GUN OF THE YEAR 2011'
DOUBLE RIFLE DRILLING
In it‘s 125th Anniversary Year, the 2011 Gun of the Year is a Krieghoff Neptun, the
crown jewel in Krieghoff’s hunting gun repertoire.
The drilling, caliber .30-06, .30-06, 20/76 features 'Exclusive Façon', burlwood, ebony forearm tip and 'Kaiser'-grip with hand polished stock finish. Intricate checkering in a customized English Arabesque pattern perfects the stock.
Like the Neptun Type 'M', the sidelocks are hand-detachable and completely goldplated.The action features a unique 'Exclusive Façon' engraving, with embossed accents.
The engraving motif honors the classic style of traditional Krieghoff guns, and was custom engraved by Krieghoff Master Engraver Gerhard Reich.
Realistic relief engraved hunting scenes with bears and wild boar adorn this one of a kind drilling. On the bottom a mighty moufflon is shown. Gold accents in ornament and a gold monogram underline this classic engraving. At the bottom of the barrel's Acanthus leaf-Ornaments in relief are inlaid. The top of the barrel is also covered with arabesques.
The entire team of participating gunsmiths, stockers, and engravers have put their all into this Neptun masterpiece, that rightly deserves the title 'Gun of the Year'.
