This is a super opportunity that will probably never come again. I have only seen a couple of other Boss pairs with the coveted side lever in 20 years and those were in England and not for sale.

If you know Boss guns then you know that they are the senior member of a very short list of the worlds greatest gun makers.

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.

Stephen Grant Sidelock with stunning Nitro Proofed Damascus Barrels in its makers case
Hammerless Sidelocks
12 gauge

Some of you know me and that I am attracted to quality Damascus guns. This gun pulled me across the room when I saw it in a rack in England. From that distance I could see it was a shotgun of the highest form without knowing the makers name. Much to my delight I found on close inspection a Stephen Grant, one of my favorite makers. The condition of this fine shotgun is very nice and appears in original condition seeing little if no restoration. There is a small stock extension which we could remove and replace with a fine leather covered pad if one would like for a LOP up to 15 1/2"

Completed in 1903 this is a true Edwardian era gun ( Queen Victoria died in 1901 thank you Austin). The gun is found in an original Grant case which also is in very nice original condition.

Does anyone recognize the family crest in the stock?

MacNaughton of Edinburgh Classic Scottish Round Action with Stunningly beautiful and Original Damascus
Hammerless Sidelocks

This is a super elegant round action from Scotland with gorgeous nitro proofed Damascus barrels. Stunning Damascus pattern. Did I mention how beautiful these barrels are?

These trigger plate actions remove a large amount of wood from between the action so to strengthen it this gun has had a pin put cross wise across the head of the stock to prevent cracking. It was professionally and elegantly done with horn covers. The butt has a 1" horn extension.

A super price for a sound and beautiful round action.

Stephen Grant "BEST" Sidelock ~ What a wonderful shotgun
Hammerless Sidelocks
12 gauge

Stephen Grant. He worked for Boss for awhile and then gave his notice, moved next door, and hung his shingle. In not long he was counted among England's greatest gunmakers. It is said Boss and Grant were on good terms and often shared work when one needed help. I observed an example of this once when I found some filers initials on a Grant that looked familiar. I realized I had seen them on a Boss that I had!

This is a super example of what Grant could do and at a very attractive price. Note the 2 3/4" nitro proofs.

This light weight and stunningly beautiful shotgun has super dimensions and balance. We seldom see game scene engraving of this quality on English doubles.

This name is often confused with Westley Richards. While they are both respected gun makers they are not related. William Richards shop was in Liverpool and was quite old, starting in the late 1700's and only closing in the year 2000.

*Note that this gun has a wood extension instead of a pad but keep in mind we can easily remove the extension and install a Best quality leather pad for only $300.00. This only takes about two to three weeks.

Henry Atkin High Grade London Sidelock cased and in excellent condition
Hammerless Sidelocks
12 gauge

This is a very original and high grade English sidelock by one of London's most respected makers. Henry Atkin worked for James Purdey before hanging his own shingle.

I love the original and unmessed with feel of this shotgun. The barrels are well in "12" proof with both barrels at .735 and with excellent wall thickness. The stock dimensions are perfect for the masses and the chokes being full and full one can now make them anything they want. We charge $75.00 per barrel to open chokes. All in all an excellent London gun at a very attractive price point when compared with a similar quality London gun such as a Boss or Purdey.

Built in 1897 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.

Note the light weight, 6 lbs. 6 oz!

* The case colors were done by the best in the world, St. Ledger in the UK.

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

C.S. Rosson sidelock from between the wars in its makers case ~ Light and features a single trigger ~
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.

What a nice gun for less than many lower end new machine made doubles. Built ~ 1925 this is a great example of pre-war English craftsmanship. Notice the weight! What a great gun to carry all day. John Rogers was located at 23 Bath Street, Birmingham England. The business seems to have closed sometime during WWII.

This is a well made gun but has had some stock modifications done by a professional to fit a specific shooter. It would make a great restock project or just shoot it as it is. The current dimensions are very modern. It would also for the artisan be fun to try grain painting and make the stock changes invisible.

This is a shooter as is or would make a great restoration project. The barrel blue is thin. I detect it is ever so slightly off face as with the forend off I can barely detect the slightest wiggle.

On the positive side the barrels ring true and are sound. The wood would be quite beautiful if given a new authentic oil finish.

William Evans 16g. Sidelock Ejector with Original Evans Makers Case ~ Single trigger for those late snow roosters when warm gloves are in order!

I have always appreciated William Evans shotguns. While they had their guns built for them in the London and Birmingham trade they obviously required a very high standard with details and quality that set them apart from many other makers. This dedication to quality is certainly a factor in why they are still in business today.

16g. Sidelocks are very hard for me to find so I was extremely excited to find this little gem in the UK and bring it across the pond. The non –selective single trigger (believe me that is a good thing, selective triggers are the ones that give single triggers a reputation for failure) is crisp and works perfectly. Choking is perfect for upland hunting or woodcock or southern bobwhites. I love 16g. and I really like this gun.

Finding 16g. nitro proofed English guns with 30" barrels has been like trying to find rocking horse poop. Well, maybe not that bad but they have been so hard to find of late. I am a 16 gauge fan as most of you know and I have to say I do love these long barrels that swing for us so well. This gun is not fancy but is very well made and the barrels are in excellent condition.

Hammerless Sidelocks
20 gauge

Boss 20g. Sidelock in exceptional condition and investment grade original. Featuring 28”whitworth steel barrels, 75% case color, 98% blue, in its makers case. 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 $57000.00

L. C. Smith 410 Field Grade but ordered with 28" barrels and auto ejectors~ Own and shoot and American classic
Hammerless Sidelocks
410 gauge
3867
FwE200492
We have the factory letter on this one, see the pictures. The letter says it was sold to "The Parker Whelen" which I believe means it was for the well known outfitter Parker Whelen & Co.

It is fairly rare to find a .410 with auto ejectors and with 28" barrels. bores are nice and clean.

Townsend Whelen Born March 6, 1877 Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, U.S. Died December 23, 1961 (aged 84) St, Louis, Missouri, U.S. Buried Arlington National Cemetery, Virginia, U.S. Allegiance United States of America Service/branch United States National Guard United States Army Years of service 1895-1899 (National Guard) 1902-1936 (Army) Rank Colonel Spouse(s) Mary (Pratt) Whelen Townsend Whelen (March 6, 1877 – December 23, 1961), called "Townie" by his friends,[1] was an American hunter, soldier, writer, outdoorsman and rifleman. Whelen was a colonel in the United States Army,[2] and a prolific writer on guns and hunting, writing over two thousand magazine articles in his career. He was a contributing editor to Sports Afield, American Rifleman, Field and Stream, Outdoor Life, Guns & Ammo, and other magazines, and author of Suggestions to Military Riflemen, The American Rifle, Telescopic Rifle Sights, The Hunting Rifle, Small Arms and Ballistics, Hunting Big Game (of which he was the editor), Amateur Gunsmithing, and Why Not Load Your Own. An autobiography, Mr. Rifleman, was begun by Whelen, but finished by his family and published after his death.[3] Whelen edited and wrote the introduction to WDM Bell's autobiography "Bell of Africa" and arranged an American publisher.[4] An expert rifleman with few peers, Whelen could reportedly hit man-sized target at 200 yards using the bolt action, open-sighted M1903 Springfield .30-06 service rifle, scoring six hits in ten seconds flat, and could do it on command. Colonel Whelen experimented with the service .30-06 Springfield cartridge while he was commanding officer of Frankford Arsenal in the early 1920s. Frankford Arsenal machine shop foreman James Howe, who later formed the rifle-making firm of Griffin & Howe, assisted Whelen modifying the .30-06 case to fire bullets of different calibers. Whelen was particularly interested in creating a cartridge to fire heavier bullets from M1903 rifle actions available from the Civilian Marksmanship Program.[5] Townsend Whelen's great passion was the great outdoors and hunting, and he undertook many expeditions into the wilderness of both North and South America, living off the land, hunting and exploring. Apart from his professional interest in the rifle as a military weapon and competitive target shooting, he also experimented with rifles and cartridges in survival and wilderness applications, using the different loads in his hunting rifles to take both small and large game while on long hunting excursions in the wilds. The comprehensive knowledge and experience reflected in Whelen's writing covered the black powder era at the end of the 1800s and spanned the transitional period into smokeless arms, resulting in the modern high velocity rifles of the 20th century.
