George T. Abby of Chicago - London proofs and built to standards of a top Purdey or Boss!

Very high grade 10 bore English built and proofed. Built to the highest English standards using bar action locks with the second patent Purdey thumb lever to open the gun. Notice the use of Brazier locks... ...Same as used by Boss & Co! The gun incorporates a unique rising third bite into the rib extension. The patent number for this appears on the action is 654. I would like to see someone buy this and do an article on it! It is high grade, unique, and beautiful to behold with great shooting dimensions.

This is a class act. If this said Purdey on it the price would be double but the craftsmanship and condition would be the same. Henry actually worked for Purdey's before he hung his shingle. The gun is tight, in proof, and ready for the field! The bar in wood shotguns were some of the most expensive guns the London makers made during the Edwardian era. The gun is a joy to hold, balances super and the hammer pulls are like butter!

What a nice pair of very shootable hammer doubles from this famous maker. They come in a wonderful pair vintage solid oak case. Number 1 gun has British sleeved barrels and number two gun has replacement steel barrels also done in England. The open barrels would be death on quail under most conditions while the other set would be great for just about every other upland bird. I note that these guns handle very well and have BEST quality locks. Consignor says sell together or buy just one for 4900.00.

Joseph Smith patent 347. I am assuming this is referring to the side lever but then again it could be the removable hinge pin.... A very nice gun extremely well made. Nice bores. If you look close you can see where the pin fire holes were filled in the barrels indicating this was a pin fire at one time.

What a super hammer gun for this price. Long LOP with excellent drop measurements for most of us.

A warning might be in order, shooting and hunting with these guns can be addictive and contagious. *The butt now has a 1" best quality leather covered pad not shown in the pictures

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!

Leopold Bernard Damascus. One of our true fathers of Damascus barrel makers! 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.

Some pitting the bores but with some carefull barrel work I believe this could be a good shooter again. The barrels are marked for Leopold Bernard - the father of Damascus barrel making.
