    Item Description: Hand made in Birmingham, England circa 1936 JV Needham was a premier builder of custom shotguns and was credited with inventing the Auto Extractor. His company was later purchase by Greener who sold the Challenger No. 3 under the JV Needham name. Bores are bright and shinny. L .715”, R .724” or Light Modified and Improved Cylinder. Premium burl walnut furniture w/ hand-rubbed oil finish is in excellent condition with exception of superficial scratch on right side of butt. No Splits, no repairs! The checkering is sharp and clean. The case hardening is a marbled grayish patina. The engraving is sharp and the screw heads are excellent. Lock up is tight. Right hd. 6 7/16 lb, 28” Barrels, 14.5” Pull, Markings: BV, BP, NP, 2 1/2", Nitro Proof 1 1/4. (NOTE: This shot gun has had the chambers reamed to accept 2 3/4" shells.) The barrels appear to have been professionally re-blued at some point. Included is a period leather case in good condition considering its age. I have fired this weapon on one occasion and it is a joy to shoot. PM me with any questions! I Prefer Not to ship but will for extra to cover cost (Within State of GA ONLY.)
