I purchased the gun in Germany from Frankonia. They listed the condition as "neuwertig"/like new and it is. Deep engraving, very fine checkering, and it locks up TIGHT. It is in very very good shape but, it was previously owned, therefore it is not perfect. The LOP is 13 1/2" Merkel says serial number 1814XX was manufactured in 1990. Caliber = 12/70. Barrel length = 71cm /28". Choke combination = 1/2-1/1. Engraving = English arabesques with hunting scenes.
Shipping to your FFL. Inspect the gun upon arrival. If not satisfied, pay the shipping and return it. Consider the purchase complete if you shoot the gun. Located in El Paso, Texas, local pickup possible
Photos upon request. (for some reason, I can't post photos on 6.8forum)
