If Zaccaria ordered such an expensive pair of barrels from England, he was surely thinking about a very high level gun.
And it is its punctilious making which characterises this n°82, manufactured in 1935 by a mature Zaccaria, this gun came to us from tha family of the first owner.
This great accuracy is perceived by the hands just opening and closing the gun, in the meanwhile the eyes capture its solidity underlined by the spartan hardening.
From the beginning of the 1930s Zaccaria adopted a different lock from the Holland & Holland one, that he previously used. We already found this kind of lock mounted on a Greener Imperail made in 1911, that one was signed by J. Brazier.
