You be the judge. This rifle is made by a company called Verney-Carron. Rifles are built to order and this one was ordered in November. Caliber is 450/400 and it is built as a "true" left handed with the left trigger out in front firing the left barrel, right in rear, firing the right barrel. It has a flip up "night sight" front bead for low light conditions and a 3 leaf rear sight, which now I think is something that will not see any use. This rifle is a Azur Safari Standard model and the wood is not upgraded. Both triggers break crisp at about 5 pounds and it also has ejectors. It weighs exactly 10 pounds. Has a built in scope mount as these old eyes might add a 1x4 scope on at some point. With luck, she will kill a moose next month.
