Ludwig Borovnik double shotgun, Mfg. in Ferlach Austria in 1964. 16ga. 2 3/4" chambers, 27 1/2" barrels, 6lbs. 6oz., LOP 14 1/4" to front trigger, cheekpiece, sling swivels, scalloped action, crossbolt top fastener, ejectors, game scene engraving. Metal in excellent condition, wood has a few minor marks. I shot some preserve birds with it a few times.

Not many of these around to compare to, maybe someone here can chime in with some help - I'll get things started at $6750.00 and would welcome informed opinions.

I have a lot of pics, feel free to request more.

I’ll have to check. I’m thinking mod/full but it’s been a while.

Partial trades welcome. Need 44 and 357 hunting revolvers. 10mm pistol - DW Bruin or hi cap like a SIG Xten or an S&W. A .270 bolt action rifle or 6.8 Western or 6.5CM mtn rifle. Could also use mid-priced trap guns for my sons - doesn't need to be Perazzi or Kreighoff but a nice Beretta or Guerini would work. I'm open to a lot - let me know what you have.

I priced this based on a local high-end dealer's recommendation. Judging by the low interest it seems too high. I'll go with my original thought and lower the price to $4250.

Removing the pad and adding a 1” silvers pad, the gun would be 15-1/8” LOP and would weigh 6.5lbs. That’s not a bad plan for someone, especially if the drops right now are roughly 1-5/8” and 2” at present.

The short length of pull is actually not that short in actual wood, over 14” of wood. That’s a plus.

I have owned several very nice German drillings and DB guns. All hve horn buttplates.

The LOP and buttplate are correct for a German gun. I don't believe that changing the buttplate would not improve the gun performance and would reduce the prce. At lease someone didn;t "improve" it by adding a white line ventilated buttpad.

Was just providing a suggestion as to add equity or increase marketability. The longest piece of wood possible, plus no more than a 1” pad, equals value. This one has 14” of wood which is a good plus.

Pheroze: I was intrigued by the blog on 400, 465 H&H in which you stated you were having a rifle reamed out to accomodate the larger bore. Who is doing the work for you, do they then provide cut rifling or buttoned. Will a 375 H&H rechamber to the 400 H&H. Is there much ballistic difference between it and the 404/375
