T. Murcott 10g. top lever hammer of high quality and ready for restoration ~ 36" barrels!
Hammerguns
10 gauge

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.

Holland & Holland Hammer double with beautiful Damascus

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.

H. Nock, London, 16 ga. single barrel muzzle loader percussion lock

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.

This is a very high quality English double with sound and nitro proofed Damascus barrels. While the Purdey patent thumb lever may put one off as they look rather unusual, it would be a gross mistake to do so as they are extremely ergonomic. I have been using a gun with this feature in the field for years and absolutely love this design.

This fine shotgun is tight on face with basically bright bores and it is field ready. It has not seen any recent restoration so if one wanted, a new oil finish would bring out what is marvelous smoky English walnut.

*Note this guns extremely modern dimensions and that it has a checkered butt with engraved heel and toe clips!

Robert Jones great English made and nitro proofed entry level hammer double

From the proof marks we can tell this little British hammer double was built between 1904 and 1925. The gun is nitro proofed and appears to be at the original bore diameter. Tight on face and with modern high dimensions this hammer double would make a great introduction to the hammer gun world without breaking the bank.

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.

With perfect chokes for upland birds over pointers this would certainly be a great gun to carry in the field. You could not only carry it all day but all week!

*We can remove the extension and install a top quality leather covered pad for only $300 and get it done in three weeks or less. This could change the LOP up to 14 5/8".

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.

Original vintage 28 gauge hammer doubles are as rare as rocking horse shit but low and behold, we have a super one! This gun has no engraving but the makers name but you know what? It does not need engraving to make it one of the most elegant little hammer doubles we have had in years.

The craftsmanship on this petite flower is high and when you handle the gun it is obvious. The listing below is correct, the barrels are 24”. Many, upon reading this listing will say "they are too short" but in person they do not appear short at all as they are in perfect proportion to the action and stocking. Check out the picture with the quarter coin and put things in perspective.

I want to say more about this very special gun but I am at a loss for words except it truly is a sweetheart of little double.
