Investment grade doubles are more expensive for a reason. They, like desirable real-estate, do not come up on the market often and when they do they are not for sale long. Only once in a blue moon do we get a vintage pigeon gun of this quality and original condition. Three best things about this Grant is "Condition" “Condition “ “Condition."

After that there is the BEST quality engraving, exhibition wood, stunning Damascus barrels, pigeon rib, remaining case color, and heel and toe clips just to add a few.........

As many of you know Boss & Co. is one of my favorite makers. Their quality has no equal and this beauty is no exception. This is an outstanding rebounding hammer double featuring bar action locks and the extremely ergonomic Purdey second patent thumblever.

The two barrel sets offer versatility. The original barrels have a great general choking and the sleeved barrels are open being perfect for quail, woodcock, or skeet.

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
3550
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.

Boss & Co. Classic Thumb Lever Hammer with Stunning Wood!
Hammerguns
12 gauge

They don't call Boss guns the best for nothing. They really are the "Boss" of the London shotgun trade since Thomas Boss started building the best in 1812, the same year we declared our last war on Britain over two centuries ago. Boss is still in Business today.

This fine double has its original barrels which feature excellent wall thickness and recent nitro proofs. Note that the stock dimensions are excellent for most. This would make a great vintager or occasional vintage sporting clay gun. I love the marble cake wood! I also very much like the thumb lever. They are very ergonomic and easy to operate.

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.

Alfred Lancaster Side-lever with Stunning Wood!

Unlike his brother Charles, Alfred Lancaster it appears to me to have only built high grade guns as all the ones we have had over the years were all high grade. This is no exception. If you have not tried a side lever opening gun you should. They are a joy to operate.

Field ready this will be a joy to hunt and shoot! When afield there is always a point in the day when I sit and rest with my dog and appreciate my immediate blessings. These include the sky, the clouds, the smell of sage and the stunning views. I acknowledge the love I have for my four footed companions and partners who are at my side. Without exception I acknowledge the stunningly beautiful shotgun between my hands which combines history, craftsmanship, function, and beauty.

This is a very beautiful and high quality muzzle loader. The bores are very clean. The right barrel minimum wall of .020 is in a very small spot about 6" from the muzzle.

It would be interesting to know the history of this gun. It has been very well taken care of.

*Note the Purdey style (patent?) grip safety which is usually only found on the high end guns of the period.

Holland & Holland Top Lever Back Action ~ An excellent 16g. Hammer gun for clays or field
Hammerguns
16 gauge
3707
11776
This gun started life as a Paradox but now has been made exclusively a shotgun. For those that are not familiar with the Holland paradox guns they were shotguns that also worked as rifles featuring rifling in the last few inches of the bore. As many found the rifling interfered with perfect shot patterns they would have the rifling removed to make them a better shotgun and that is what has been done with classic Holland 16g.

This Holland features excellent stock dimensions and handles very nicely, feeling lighter than its true weight. This would make an excellent 16g to participate in Vintager events and also work well for upland hunting over pointing dogs.
