Bernardelli, Brescia. Nice, light weight, 12ga. “Gamecock Premier” sidelock  game gun, ca. 1962.  Weight: 6 ¾ Lbs.  Stock Dimensions: 15”x 1 ½”x 2 ½”x straight.   25” steel barrels with 2 ¾” chambers have mint bores (.726”/.726”), choked .007”/.028”. and minimum wall thickness .033”/.032”.  Unusual, ultra strong, “Quadruple Bite” action and bar-action sidelocks retain most of the original hardening colors. Nicely jeweled action and barrel flats. Barrels retain 100% original brilliant black finish. Single non-selective trigger. Ejectors. Nicely finished straight-grip walnut stock is rebated into the action at the head for added strength, a touch usually reserved for best guns. Overall in little-used original condition and tight as a safe. You would be hard pressed to find a nicer, stronger, light weight game gun for the money.
