PIOTTI, GARDONE, One of a pair of Piotti's ordered in 1985 through Holland and Holland, shot and regulated by WJ Jeffery. Hand built by the original Piotti brothers and hand engraved by Araldo Piotti personally. Weight and balance is exceptional as is the condition. SLE, 2 3/4", 27" choked IC/IMod. 14 1/4" highly figured wood to checkered butt. Diamond straight hand grip and very fine checkering also present. Silvered action beautifully engraved in the classic Holland open acanthus style. Holland, hand detachable locks, beaded fences and front articulated front trigger round out this hand built receiver. 6 1/2lbs but feels closer to 6 due the great care taken to balance the gun. It was not uncommon during this era for Holland to facilitate the sale of Piotti guns - a great testament to this top tier Italian maker.
