J.D. Dougal Classic "Lockfast" 10 gauge ~ Vintage Geese and ducks look out! End of Summer Sale!
Hammerguns
10 gauge

J.D. Dougal was a true gunmaker and he built guns on his own patent known as the "Lockfast." With a cam that as the gun is closed moves the action tight against the breech it is not only unique but very effective.

The quality of craftsmanship in this gun is extremely high. I really appreciate the skill, engineering, and craftsmanship it took to build them and this is an outstanding example.

T. Murcott 10g. top lever hammer of high quality and ready for restoration ~ 36" barrels!
Hammerguns
10 gauge
3157
4524
Theophilus Murcott is quite famous for being the inventor of the first production hammerless shotgun. He was granted this patent in 1871. They were purchased and closed by W. W. Greener in 1878.

This would make a great project as I know it would turn out to be something really special. This in its day was a very high crafted gun. I love the elegant 36" barrels!

A full restoration would include back boring the barrels for pitting and to add choke, browning of the barrels, rejoin, replace two screws, and complete wood restoration. Finished this would be a very special gun.

Would look great now over the hunting lodge mantel!

James Purdey top lever bar in wood in its makers case ~ Purdey letter states that this gun was completed in 1878 for Lord Ormathwaite as one of a trio
Hammerguns
12 gauge

10184
One of a trio this fine Purdey was completed in 1878 for Lord Ormathwaite and was later owned by the Honorable Gerald Walsh. See Purdey letter in the photo's.

Stunning marble cake wood and balance and very modern dimensions make this a very desirable Purdey. I am especially enamored with the bar in wood action, the most difficult to stock and the most expensive choice in the Purdey catalog. In the right barrel towards the muzzle there is a small area of pitting but in the area where there is very little pressure and was obviously there when the barrels were nitro proofed in 2012.

This gun is beautifully presented in its period oak and leather case.

*Note this gun still retains its full and full chokes allowing the new owner to easily have them opened to any favorite combination. We can arrange for this at no extra charge.

This is a very nice Holland with lovely 30" Damascus barrels and great stock dimensions.

The Jones patent lock up is said to be the strongest action the British ever built! Some people say they are awkward to operate but I wonder if they have ever hunted and practiced with this action as I find them quite easy when one has a little time to get use to it.

Harris Holland (of Holland & Holland) nitro proofed but original hammer double, cased!
Hammerguns
12 gauge
2951
3751
This gun while in some ways plain, has many features to be appreciated. The first I would mention is that it was built by the esteemed maker Harris Holland @ 1876. It was this year that Harris took his nephew Henry Holland on as partner and the name of the business was changed to "Holland & Holland." Henry undoubtedly spent many hours himself building this fine shotgun.

This shotgun features original and nitro proofed barrels and the very ergonomic side lever opening lever. While just border engraved this Holland will perform beautifully in the field with stock dimensions that will fit many.

When you have a beautiful woman in your hands you know it. When you have a beautiful gun in your hands you know it also. This is a beauty. High grade, best made, and between the hands, like that girl, you wont want to let her go!

You may not have heard of Adam's but they are a well known maker in the UK and well respected. It is at a quality of a Purdey hammer double and can be purchased at a fraction of the cost of the Purdey so this is the gun for the hunter that wants quality on the beer budget. These kind of guns are getting harder and harder for me to find!

Henry Nock made guns for the English nobility, the military, and hunters. Nock later became Wilkinson Sword. I use to shave with a Wilkinson razor! Yes, the same company.

This is a quality gun and very shoot-able being in nice condition. A close examination of the proof marks leads me to believe this gun was built by Wilkinson under the Nock name on or after 1813.

Parker hammer guns that have not been messed with are getting harder to fine, especially ones that would make good field guns with the RST ammunition.

This gun has some pitting in the bores that should be cleaned up. With their massive thickness this should not be a problem. I would recommend putting it properly back on face also.

We can arrange for this work if you would like us to contract the restoration.

This 16 would make a great sporting clays or vintager competition gun due to its weight and high stock perfect for the rising birds.

16 Gauge English hammer doubles are rare to begin with but to find one by the esteemed John Dickson of Edinburgh is an extra special day.

This little gun is light but spry and handles well. I like the ornamentation on the trigger guard. Someone in the shop asked me what that was for and I said what I believe at least "just for pretty." Pretty is a worth while thing in my book.

You know this wonderful gun is plain as plain can be but I like it. Why? It is well balanced and feels extremely well between the hands.

I do appreciate the side-lever which I find very easy to use and also the original Damascus barrels.

Not all of our guns call to me to take them afield but this one certainly does and it is one of our cheaper guns which goes to show something, more expensive is not always better.

The price reflects a few minor but present pit's in the bores and the rather plain wood and silvers pad. A leather covered pad would certainly dress this girl next door up a bit.

Some pitting the bores but it is possible with some careful barrel work this could be a good shooter again.

The barrels are marked for Leopold Bernard - the father of Damascus barrel making.

Engraving shows some ware but is outstanding. I love the sculpted hammers. For this price it is a great example of pin fire guns and looks great just hanging around the gun room.

I personally own and hunt with a Nowotny shotgun. I have never run across a gun by this maker that was not super high quality. This gun shows all those qualities I would expect.

Note the lovely hammers shaped to look like pin fire but really center fire. Exquisite engraving. A super value on a high quality combination gun.
