In its makers case this very original Dickson is an investment but much more. Considered by many to be the pinnacle of design and elegance in a double barrel shotgun. I cannot disagree.

Henry Atkin "Formerly of James Purdey""Best" side-lever side lock ejector in wonderful condition
Hammerless Sidelocks
12 gauge

Built to the highest London standards in ~ 1895 this outstanding sidelever side lock is in wonderful condition. Note the fine engraving, modern high stock dimensions, and near exhibition wood.

Henry Atkin worked for James Purdey and proudly stated this fact on his barrels. The barrels on this gun are made from the finest steel of the the period, Sir Joseph Whitworth steel. These are at no surprise the same barrels that Purdey used on their shotguns.

"John" Dickson Round action with wonderful newer barrels ~ Note the great LOP and that it is just Stunning!
Hammerless Sidelocks
12 gauge

This beautiful Dickson comes to us from one of my favorite hunting buddies. He is downsizing and it is to your benefit as this is a stunning example of what is considered by many to be the most elegant and sexy double guns ever to grace the fields of this earth.

Does anyone remember the old "Black Velvet" whiskey ads? The one with the stunning woman in the black dress? Seeing this gun in the rack brings forth the same response from seeing that ad… …Let me hold you!

I just looked it up in the Dickson book by Dallas and it says it was competed August 13th 1893. The new barrels appear to be by the maker.

Boss & Co. Classic English "BEST" Sidelock at a great price
Hammerless Sidelocks
12 gauge
3508
5354
This is a beautiful example of a Boss. Great dimensions and barrel length, stunning wood, and tons of original remaining case color that make her glow.

Why are we offering this gun at such a super price? To be up front, it is because it is out of proof as the chambers measure 2 3/4" and the gun is proofed for 2 1/2". Like many Boss's ,Purdey’s, and Hollands that have been here in the states a long time, this guns chambers were lengthened to 2 ¾” so it could use the American shells. Now we have access to 2.5” shells here in America (see www.rstshells.com) but ten years ago and earlier there were virtually none so many high end English guns in America then had their chambers lengthened 1/4".”

One could have this gun returned to the UK and reproofed for 2 3/4." This would significantly increase its value but would cost about 1k and would take six months to a year. We can arrange for this.

One could also just keep the gun as is and shoot it the rest of their life using the RST 2.5" shells and make a significant savings.

Boss guns are considered by many the BEST of the BEST and I can find no reason to dispute this.

*We can arrange to have the small stock extension removed and a BEST leather pad installed for only $300.00.

This fine Scottish double has been given a new life with excellent 2 3/4" nitro proofed barrels which were built in England in 1952.

The stock does have a 1" wood extension before the pad, an extremely well done extension I might add. Look at the pictures and be amazed.

The weight of this gun lends itself to its 2 3/4" nitro proof. This MacNaughton is an excellent value and would be perfect for taking a vintage Scottish gun afield.

Built in 1887 this stunningly beautiful sidelock is in wonderful condition. This gun has been restored to near new condition to the highest of standards.

This shotgun shows near 100% case color and near 100% barrel black and wood finish. The barrel sets are quite versatile in their choke combinations with an open choked set for close in work like for Quail and skeet and the number 2 set with tight chokes for those late season south Dakota roosters or sporting clays.

William Powell Classic uplift lever (A Powell signature and patent) High Grade Sidelock Ejector
Hammerless Sidelocks
12 gauge

This gun has been beautifully and tastefully restored by respected English restoration shop "Heritage Guns." Toby Barkley the owner and craftsman of this fine business made the following notes on this gun:

"This is a superb example of the BEST Birmingham sidelock ejector from this highly respected gunmaker, made in the heyday of the British gun trade. It features one of the best known of the esoteric opening systems that featured on many prestigious gunmaker’ s products of the time: the Powell Patent Lift-Up Toplever, more commonly seen on their beautiful hammerguns, rare in a hammerless sidelock."

I have to say this is a truly beautiful shotgun with some of the most sought after features to be found in a BEST sidelock such as bar action locks, safety sears, Deeley ejectors, and auto safety. Heritage Guns have restored the maker’s case to a very high standard. This is a truly beautiful package and at great price.

James Woodward SLE at an excellent price! I love these arcaded fenced Woodwards!
Hammerless Sidelocks
12 gauge

This classic Woodward has the elegant arcaded fences that many of us have so come to cherish on the vintage London best guns. Nine pin safety seared locks are beautifully engraved with Rose and scroll.

*Note the "modern" stock dimensions which are great for many. With the 14" of original wood one could add a 1" pad to get up to a 15" LOP. We can arrange for this.

The barrels were sleeved and proofed in England and an excellent job was done. Sleeved sidelocks continue to offer the wing shooter an excellent value. Contrary to some opinion, Sleeved guns do hold their value. The value of the sleeved guns has always followed the market value of their counterpart guns which are in original condition. At 40-50% less cost than an original collector grade gun sleeved guns give the bird hunter an opportunity to hunt with a classic BEST gun at near half the price.

This Hussey, unlike in general its female counter parts, reeks of class. Although just border engraved do not let the lack of makeup fool you! This shotgun is beautiful inside and out, built to the highest standards of the Edwardian era.

Balanced just slightly forward of the hinge pin this shotgun handles perfectly. The bores are bright and clean with excellent walls and the barrels are tight on face. Own a London BEST for a fraction of the cost than if you were to buy a London first name of which the quality would be none better

McCririck & Sons of Ayr and Kilmarnock ! BEST Scottish Sidelock! Did your ancestors wear a kilt? If so, this is the gun for you!
Hammerless Sidelocks
12 gauge

These McCririck shotguns from Scotland are certainly high grade and in excellent condition. This is a super deal on a Scottish sidelock featuring high condition, great wood, barrels, and stock dimensions great for many.

*Note that we could pull the wood butt plate and install a leather covered pad to make this fine shotgun up to a 15" LOP.

Nigel Browns definitive series of books on British, Irish, and Scottish guns "British Gunmakers" mentions on page 159 of volume III that James McCririck opened shop in 1839 and in 1904 split to two shops Ayr, and Kilmarnok. He goes on to state that the Ayr shop was closed at the beginning of WW I , July of 1914.

Our gun was thus built somewhere between those two dates as the rib shows both address’s . Edwardian period guns!

You may have not have heard of this fine gunmaker but they built stunning quality guns. I was very interested to learn they were in business for so long, starting in 1839 and the Kilmarnock shop only closing in 1992, in business 153 years!

Featuring 2 3/4" nitro proofs on excellent newer barrels by famous gun maker Churchill’s and great stock dimensions for many this Holland is a real value for the upland bird hunter.

A very nice English sidelock by this well known (among the English) maker. Extra's on this gun I see are the Sir Joseph Whitworth steel barrels (same as used on Purdey's) and bushed firing pins.

This gun was built in the year 1896 and one just has to look at a shotgun like this and wonder how they did it. Highest craftsmanship is what turns me on and this gun does that. The action is lightly brushed but not bad and I have to admit the minimal engraving lends itself to its elegant lines. Best of all it handles and balances beautifully. Some buyers tell us they cannot afford a high grade English sidelock and I often tell them if they are patient we can find them a nice sidelock in the boxlock price range. This is one of those guns. Mark this one a bargain.

Great wood and stock dimensions for the upland hunter combined with super lightweight and chokes that will put the food on the table.

Don't let all those positive attributes distract you from the beauty and craftsmanship in this fine sidelock.

Known as "The Gun makers of the West" (Western England of course!) this firm started business in Bristol in 1876 and were still in business in 1964.

A Holland & Holland sidelock for under 10K? Yes! And it is basically a sound gun ready to see the field! In its makers case the gun is tight on face and has good dimensions.

If one wanted to restore the gun it could use new blue on the barrels, a few replacement screws, and a new oil finish. The forend wood could use a few minor repairs.

These climax guns have always been admired for their ergonomic rounded actions and nice balance.

C.S. Rosson sidelock from between the wars in its makers case ~ Light!
Hammerless Sidelocks
12 gauge

Although you may not be familiar with the name, Rosson of Norwich is an old and respected gun maker in England.

Great stock dimensions for many combined with a useful choking and excellent wall thickness makes this little and light English sidelock a real find.

I do feel it was when new ( I believe the ninth gun built in 1933) a semi-pistol grip gun and it has since been expertly converted to a straight grip.

This is a very nice Lancaster featuring the self opening mechanism. It is ready for the field. These guns have received a bum wrap as they have been called "Wrist breakers" as they were supposedly hard to close. When you close these it is cocking the main springs after firing. I find them no harder to close than a Purdey, not a big deal. The secret, as in Purdey's, is knowing how to snap the gun closed. Learn this trick and it is easy. This gun is very high quality at any price.

Jules Burry of Liege Belgium prewar sidelock with full coverage engraving and signed by premier engraver L. Smeets ~ We miss listed , is Cast off
Hammerless Sidelocks
12 gauge
3140
7199

Jules Burry was a highly respected Belgium gunmaker. This gun has many high end features such as bushed firing pins, nine pin safety seared sidelocks, and a hinged front trigger. The action is 100 percent scroll engraved and to the highest standard. As the gun is signed, we know the engraver was L. Smeets, a highly regarded engraver in Belgium. He did much of his work for Francotte and Lebeau Courally and generally only on their top end guns.

It does not show in the picture but there is some minor pitting in the metal where the forend pivots on the action. This is purely cosmetic and cannot be seen with the gun assembled. While this takes this gun out of the collector category it certainly does not for the hunter or clay shooter and we have priced the gun accordingly.

*If one would like a lower comb at cheek or heel there is plenty of wood to reshape it lower or the stock could be bent.

Churchill Imperial Grade XXV in 16g. This is a super rare and beautiful 16g!
Hammerless Sidelocks
16 gauge

Churchill Imperial Grade Sidelock Ejector 16 Gauge! This extremely rare gun will become your favorite go to gun. Light but well balanced it handles like it is an extension of yourself. One could spend a 100K or more on a new English double and not achieve the quality and craftsmanship of to me what is a true dream double. Featuring iconic Churchill “XXV” barrels this sixteen weighs in at 5 lbs. 10.5 oz. and is choked perfectly for birds. Built between the wars around 1930 this gun was built at the pinnacle of English gun making.

*Note the English violin style case. It is marked in the brass "England" and next to that embossed "Feather weight." We usually see Boss small bores in these cases. I really like them. The top of the case is embossed "Mrs. W.E. Carlin." I did a quick search on line and found there was a W.E. Carlin in NY in 1905 that coauthored a book called "Guns, ammunition, and tackle 1904."

What a fabulous little and light 16g. by this premier maker. Which seldom happens, we received this lithe magic wand in its original makers case, numbed to the gun. Really this Holland has it all, balance, stock dimensions, and simple classic elegance. Sometimes we are convinced a fine shotgun has to be covered in engraving and fancy wood to be the best. There are exceptions to every rule and this petite 16 is exceptional.

It is not often we get a high quality English side lock 16g. in our shop so we feel very lucky to have this one. The light (5 lbs. 15 oz.) weight with the 28" nitro proofed steel barrels and the long LOP work perfectly together to result in a extremely well balanced shotgun.

This fine little beauty is tight on face and has an excellent trigger pull. As some of you know I am a 16 gauge fan and I have to tell you I do really like this little gun.

This petite flower weighs in at 5 lbs. 4.5 oz., lighter than many 28 gauges. Stocked to the fences, assisted opening, iconic and crisp Boss single trigger, chopper-lump barrels, and stunning wood with super dimensions, this Boss has all and more of what we would expect from a Boss. What I expect most of all from Boss is what I think is their true trade mark, “Balance.” Let me tell you, get this gun between your hands and you will not want to let it go as you would feel your letting go of a part of yourself.

Twenty gauge Boss doubles are like prime real estate. They seldom come up for sale, are priced at the top of the market, and there are never any regrets in owning as they are always worth what you paid and more. A solid investment at $67000.00
