    Hunters,
    Here is something that does not come along to often. I have decided to sell this beautiful M. Thy's .470 Nitro on AH because I know it will be appreciated. I am not going to write a long description, the pictures speak for it.
    Enjoy looking and if you are interested or want more information PM me.

    Thank you for sharing, what a wonderful example of gunmakers art. The engraving alone would cost more than one of my doubles. I hope you sell it to someone here on AH that will take it out and let her speak to the big kritters of the world.

    What a beautiful double. I hope it finds a good home, as I suspect it was not an easy decision to let it go. Thanks you for all the pictures.

    That is a fine looking firearm! As someone mentioned this rifle needs to go to Africa and work a little.
