Is this factory guys and girls? It has a plain barrel with standard stocks. Lady that has it said her husband ordered it for her 55+ years ago when they used to go bird hunting in Argentina. She said she got to use it 1 time and shot it about 20 times. She’s probably close to 80. I’ve never seen a pretty much plain gun with factory engraving. Made in 55 I believe. The awesome thing is that the gun is still 98%+. Problem is the $1700 price tag

Mike,

If it is factory work, the price tag is extremely cheap.

I personally can not say if it is original or not… I will suggest that you contact Pauline.

All of the factory M12 engraving patterns from 1A to 5 had dogs or game birds in the pattern. Yours does not. If yours is factory, it was a special order and you will likely never document that. You can check Kusmit’s serial numbers of guns he engraved listed in Riffles M12 book. But he was only one of several possible engravers.

Also, it would be very hard to say whether or not any given gun was factory engraved based only on photos. You need the gun in hand.
