item# 3119James Purdey Live Pigeon gun in minty original condition just walked in our shop... ....Investment gun buyers heads up! (click for more info)
12 gauge - Hammerless Sidelocks
It is on the rare occasion we have a gun come into the shop that just sets one on his heels and the sounds uttered from the throat are "O.. M.. G...." This is one of those guns. At the height of London's golden age this gun built in October 1895 not only exudes quality but sings out condition. This Live Pigeon Purdey has over 90% original case hardening and blue and is still to be found in its original makers oak & leather case with tools. It is interesting to note that in the original ledger the gun was ordered with a pigeon rib (see pictures). I almost feel sorry for the first owner that kept this gun in the closet and did not use it. Almost.
This live pigeon Purdey is the perfect gun for Sporting clays, live pigeons!, wild pheasants and incoming ducks. For the serious gun investor who will only buy condition guns I encourage you to seriously consider this gun. For the sportsman that wants to shoot modern 2 3/4" loads in a legend for over 75% less than the cost of new Purdey here is a bargain.
