The bores on both barrel sets remain excellent plus and are totally free of pits and are bright & shiny. The bores look like new. All of the screws remain at 98%. This piece was very well cared for, and it appears it was shot very little as the standing breech face has 90% case colors remaining. Here is Pre-War Suhl Quality game gun from the great era of 1938 with all the touch, style, grace, and workmanship of that great period.

While I was going over this piece a customer brought in a current made double S x S from Europe for some work. I laid the 1938 Geyger down and looked at his and headed straight to the bathroom with an upset stomach. He then told me what he paid, and I went back to the bathroom for a second visit. I am OK; I just live in a different world.
