The engraver illustrates the tiger’s mission on the metalwork, inlaid in white gold. The perfectly sculpted three-dimensional representation of each awe-inspiring scene is worthy of timeless admiration.
The observer is face-to-face with a tiger, engraved on the bridge. Though only a portion of the tiger’s head is portrayed, its eyes look formidable and give it an almost mystical aura. The flawless workmanship of this rifle, in all its aspects, merits the sort of scrutiny normally reserved for truly great works of art.
A tiger sculpture has been worked into a fully functional front sight base. With the press of a little button, the half-moon sight springs upright into a fixed position from its countersink in the tiger’s head. This is useful for short-range and bad light conditions.
