Someone had the need to customize this Sterly Deluxe ejector to fit their body. They added decorative features while they were at it. Twin beaded barrels are 26" with constrictions of .014/.005 and Savage 2 3/4" chambers.

I'd say that was a one off for sure.

My brain tells me I don't need any more crossover guns. I think I have seven. However, "If I got a knock on the head". Is this gun for sale?

Wonderful!! You find some interesting guns Bill!! Is it just the pictures or is that rib matting (last picture) different out near the muzzle? The rib matting appears normal in the two pictures that show the breech end of the barrels

Dave - The rib stipling is consistent along its length. I agree that the muzzle pic makes it look unusual. The middle bead is red in color and faded.

One would think the butt stock would show signs of checking or cracking. I have had the gun for 20 years and it shows no signs of shrinkage or aging. The person who checkered the stock (24 lpi) had a 3 dimensional mind.

Xewizzard, do you keep the gun as a curiousity or do you shoot it regularly? I shoot my crossover guns for all shooting and would like to own yours.

xewizzard,

Is the safety functional? As much as that top tang is skewed it would seem that some modifications would have had to be done to it for it to function. Interesting gun.

Stan, the safeties work well on all of my crossover side by sides. It doesn't seem to be a problem for the makers.

The safety slide does work altho it is a manual reset.
