JOSEF KIRNER 12 G. CENTRALFIRE HAMMERGUN. A Royal gun from the Austrian Hungarian Empire made between 1866 and 1871 by Josef Kirner of Pesten (one half of actual day Budapest) who was the Royal Court Armorer of the Emperor's Franz Josef of Austro-Hungarian Empire. 30" Acid Etched Bernard I Damascus Barrels with 90-95% Original black and white Damascus Pattern, Right bore .715" with .004" choke, Left bore .716" with .006" choke. Bores are excellent original and show no pitting but have faint frosting. A light polishing would leave them mirror bright and shinny. Gun has the Charles Harvey "CENTRALFIRE" hammer and firing pin system, British Patent # 1793 of 1866. Full game scene engraved in very tasteful Germanic Style with solid Gold lettering and Gold game scene borders. ( I noticed that the pictures do not do justice to the "gold". The gold is beautiful and complete and the shading which appears is just poor picture quality) Gold inlays at barrel breach read: KIRNER JOSEF PESTEN, FEGVER CYAROS, M KIR UDVARI Engraved steel buttplate with beautifully engraved retaining screwheads.
