To quote the brilliant statesman, Jed Clampett, "Weeeellll, Doggies!
". This most remarkable (and unsmoked) '188' S. Bang design is a gorgeous shape, no doubt about it. Having done some research, however, it seems that what Bang is accredited with is that gorgeous saddle bit, I can't find anything to confirm that they also designed the body (grateful for any input from Euro-Stanwell experts). The grain is right fine, and I doubt that many of us Yanks will have many shots at the shape.
