The beautiful Damascus barrel by itself weighs 8 lbs. 14.5 oz and is 1 5/8" wide at the breech! The full Length is 57” (near five feet!). This is a quality behemoth with a presence to say it with British subtlety. First gun we have ever had from the Isle of Wight, a perfect island located between England and France for water-fowling. Bore is near perfect. Like quality but something different? You have found it.

Another one for the book! The lever forward of the guard pulls down and slides the barrel forward. Ingenious and effective! Barrels are Leopold Bernard Damascus. Leopold is considered the father of Damascus barrel making. This is a great price on such a high quality and historical shotgun that can still be used in the field.

William Evans 10g. hammer double with steel barrels and nitro proofed
Hammerguns

10 gauge nitro proofed hammer guns are rather hard for us to come by. In 1902 when built this waterfowl double was probably entry level so it does not catch the eye with fancy engraving and wood. What this veteran has to offer is great stock dimensions, proofs, weight, and choke. I would not be afraid to take this old man into the duck blind for that is where he was always intended to be.

James Purdey Hammer 12 in its makers case ~ and a two barrel set to boot! A very rare find.
Hammerguns
12 gauge
3114
8794

The Island lock Purdey hammer shotgun is considered by many to be the most elegant and ergonomic shotgun ever offered. Lord Ripon, England's most famous shot, found these hammer Purdey's to be his shotgun of choice. He used three to set the record of 28 pheasants shot in less than one minute! For those unfamiliar with what an Island lock shotgun is about, note in the pictures that the lock is completely surrounded by wood, thus making the lock an Island in wood. This was copied by a few other makers but has always been considered a signature of James Purdey hammer guns.

The gun we offer here is a very nice example and is exceptionally rare as it is a two barrel set and still to be found in its original oak and leather case. We have had many hammer Purdey's over the years and this is the only one we have ever had like this.

I have handled this shotgun for the last few days and I have to say it is a pleasure to swing, having exceptional balance and momentum for its very light weight.

If a person were to own just one hammer gun this fine shotgun would be at the top of the a very short list of true classics to choose from.

Exquisite marriage of metal and wood featuring the vault tight Jones under lever lock up. I really like the way Purdey so ornately incorporated the Jones lever to also be the trigger guard . This fine Purdey comes with its original makers oak & leather case. The bores are bright and shiny with only a few very minor scuffs. Ready for your next bird hunt!

Stephen Grant with desirable and ergonomic side lever in its makers case and nitro proofed! Own a London Best Hammer Gun!
Hammerguns
12 gauge

5639

You may not know that Stephen Grant was a managing partner in Boss & Co., to this day, one of the most respected gun makers in the world. 1867 brought the world many historical events, The United States purchased Alaska from Russia, Wilbur Wright was born, Alfred Noble invented dynamite, and to the point here, Stephen Grant left Boss & Co. and opens his own gun business in the highly touted gun center of the world, St. James street , London, England. Quickly known for long guns of the highest quality the firm became renowned for the use of the side lever opening action which is still extremely popular today.

This Grant has excellent barrels which have good walls and are in 2 3/4" nitro proof. The dimensions are excellent and the gun balances as one would expect, with ease and fluidity. I particularly like the chokes which are perfect for hunting any of the upland game in North America. The makers’ case contains its oil bottle, snap caps, cleaning rod with their jags. This fine shotgun is an excellent investment which can be and rightfully enjoyed in the field.

Thomas Boss 12 ga muzzle loader with makers case... ...what does this fine Boss and Email have in common?

In 1840 the the Penny Black stamp was issued. This was the first stamp in the world. People wrote a lot of letters at this time, as this was the only way to communicate over long distances, yes, no email! This was the year that this Boss graced the hill and dale of England. Good walls make this elegant old man a great shooter for the field and I am sure will swing with the confidence that 160 years of experience will bring.

Kirby has actually shot at ducks in England with this gun, not sure what ended up in the pot though? Gary wrote that. Kirby here. I did shoot many ducks with this with my friend Peter and he will attest I hit my share. Was a fun time. They called it night flighting..... At dusk we gathered at a little pond on a farm, they called it a "splash." Sure enough as the sky darkened the ducks would come in and land right in front of us!

W.W. Greener hammer gun with a sidelever in pretty nice original condition
Hammerguns
12 gauge

While this Greener may not have been very high on the pecking order of Greener guns this example has survived in remarkable condition. At first glance I thought this flower might be best as decor on the wall but after measuring the barrels and finding them sound and in excellent order I decided to take a closer look. I pulled the locks and put them through the ultrasonic cleaner and they came out looking like new on the inside. I found some case hardening remaining on the outside. I found the wood in very sound condition and with a considerable amount of original finish.

To sum up my findings, I found a gun that is still very serviceable and an excellent example of what Greener could offer its less affluent customers. I found I liked this gun very much!

See this gun just for fun with barrels by Bernard... ... http://www.metmuseum.org/collection/the-collection-online/search/24957 While faded, the name La Page still reads in the green wool felt of this original case with original tools. The gun while plain of engraving is of absolute high quality with exquisite hammers. A rare find and I hate to sell this but I cannot keep all my favorites. Note that the original case has a slight dome to it! Bores have some pitting but a very shootable and collectible pinfire.
