From an America San Giorgio. Nothing cast here, just fabulous sculpting with hand tools and an artists eye. A bit of Gothic design here? Reminds me a bit of gargoyles.

Small world. I once owned that very rifle, in the early 1980s, in Toronto. I sold it as I was leaving the country for a number of years, and shortly afterwards a ill-conceived gun registry came into effect, causing a great many guns to move south to the USA. A lot of fine guns left, and gun shows up here in the past years have been a shadow of their former selves, with few fine pieces to be seen. Glad to see that rifle is being cared for!

I know two other guys who once owned it as well and I did not buy it from either of them, I bought it at Basspro of all places. It needed a new bridle, a fly, a front sight and the barrel was bent. I re-finish both the wood and the metal and attended to all of the above issues. I have since sold it to a new owner who appreciates it and shoots it regularly as well as hunts it.

Yes indeed, small world.

Beautiful symmetry, JB. Greener always had nice hammers on his early guns. Looks like on heck of a nice gun! Thanks for sharing.

Gorgeous guns! I have wanted a hammergun ever since I sold my last one (20 Thomas Bland). I just havent been able to justify owning something that I would use so sparingly. They are an art form I never seem to tire of looking at, so perhaps yet again some day?

Why would you think they weren't cast ?

Kinda look out of place on the plane looking side plate.
