This is an outstanding piece by one of the Masters of the early 20th Century. He stood shoulder to shoulder in the fine gun arena with Griffin & Howe, Fred Adolph, and Hoffman Arms. This piece remains in excellent original condition and appears to be unaltered since leaving Mr. Owen's talented hands.
