Wow, This shotgun is in fantastic condition for being built in 1887. I love the strong Damascus pattern and the 60% or better case hardening on this gun. This matron has not seen a lot of use, almost virginal. I would love to see what kind of patterns this gun would throw. Did I mention how light it is?

This is a beautiful example of what the best London gun-makers could do before the wars when they had the absolute best craftsman. Two me, where Boss shotguns excelled beyond their inherent beauty and top notch craftsmanship, was in building a gun with exceptional balance. This fine Boss lives up to this reputation while in fact cementing it.

*Note the 29" barrels, my favorite length!

J. Woodward 12 ga. top lever with all the features best Woodwards are known for... ...for a right or left handed shooter
Hammerless Sidelocks
12 gauge
3354
6340
So, what things are Woodward's known for besides being outstanding London BEST guns? To start, they favored 29" barrels, a length considered by many to be the ideal (and my favorite). Second, they are known for their stunning arcaded deep chisel fences and top tier engraving. Find both of these features on this classic. Add these features to a shotgun built to the highest standards during the golden age of English gun making and you have one of the best shotguns ever made. To put cream on the cake this gun resides in a beautiful oak & Leather case with accessories.

*Note - the stock measurements indicate this shotgun is slightly cast on for a left handed shooter. We can easily bend this over for a right hand shooter.

It would be hard not to fall in love with the deep chisel leaf fences on this classic Purdey. This gun would make an excellent field gun for those rough conditions or rainy days you do not want to take your collectible grade Purdey or Boss out. The bores are bright but there is some light pitting in places on this gun which allows us to sell this gun at a very attractive price.

William Evans high grade sidelock in fantastic condition in its makers case
Hammerless Sidelocks
12 gauge

I dated this fine shotgun and was not surprised to find it was built between the wars in 1936. William Evans is still in business; see their web site at https://www.williamevans.com/.

This particular shotgun is in excellent kit, still measuring at its original proofed bore diameters of .729. The beautiful case colors remain easily at 80% and the barrel black over 95% plus. Put this all together with excellent stock dimensions and what appears to be the guns original makers’ case (including rare William Evans vintage snap caps!) and it is plain to see this gun is truly a bargain.

John Dickson & Son Classic Round action for a super price
Hammerless Sidelocks

This is very nice little Dickson round action at a price point one seldom sees for one of these fine guns. Built in 1887 when the Dickson round action was gaining in popularity, this gun shows off the classic round action and fine engraving they were capable during that period. Note the very nice wood. The balance is excellent, it feels much lighter than the listed weight due to this great balance.

The sleeving, done and proofed in England, is well done, being very hard to see even on close inspection.

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.

Note the light weight, 6 lbs. 6 oz!

Measuring up this fine shotgun I was so intrigued by its qualities and unusual little details that I had to go to my book shelf and pull out my copy of "Thomas Horsley ~ Gunmaker of "York" by David Baker. An hour later I realized I needed to get this gun listed but I have to say I enjoyed every minute reading the fascinating and remarkable history of the Horsley family and about the fine guns they made. There are many little features that make this gun add up ahead of the competition, too many to list here so give me a call and I will describe to you this fair ladies many virtues.

This gun features the intriguing, effective, and quite famous Thomas Bissell "rising bite." Rigby made this third lock up quite famous. I do like this but also appreciate the lovely wood, nice engraving, and case hardening on this classic.

The left barrel measures a few thousands out of proof (we considered this thus the great price) but with good wall thickness and sound barrels this gun should see many more years of fine service.

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.

Charles Lancaster sidelock ejector with self opening action - 1888 London quality at a super price

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.

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 economic rounded actions and nice balance.

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.

Let me make you a great deal. I will give this fine double for free to the first to contact me about this gun. Only one small caveat, if you take the gun for free you have to pay us for the restoration that was done to it :)

Cost of restoration: New London BEST oil wood finish $1000.00 Restore checkering - $300.00 New English style case hardening - $1200.0 Best English barrel striking and blacking - $400.00

This adds up to 2900.00 but to make you an even better deal we will discount the restoration bill to $2400.00. Who says there are no more bargains in the world?

In all seriousness, for $2400.00, this beautifully restored English double is a bargain. It is lovely to behold and will be deadly in the field.

These Prussian built Sauer side locks are very high quality. This one has been expertly spliced in the pistol grip to bend up the drop measurements to modern dimension. The bore does have some light pitting but overall bright. Barrels are possibly reduced in length but the they are filed together at the muzzle if done, it was not much.

Nice Damascus brown on these barrels. The wrist has been well repaired with epoxy and seems very strong. A little checkering and cosmetics could make this a nice looking gun. The bores are fairly bright with a light frost but have numerous dings and one dent that should be removed.

Nothing "plain" about this gun however which features exceptional full coverage engraving and very nice wood. Extremely well balanced and light at 5 lbs. 14 oz.

Holland & Holland 16 ga with exceptional original case color!
Hammerless Sidelocks

The first thing you appreciate about this early Royal 16 is the amount of case color that remains 50% or better. When you pick the gun up you immediately appreciate the balance and with little needed scrutiny the obviously fine craftsmanship.

Let's not ignore the pink elephant in the room and mention the rubber padded cheek piece. On the positive side it is entirely functional and useful. If one did not care for it one could have it removed. As they did remove some wood under it the job would involve the need of a talented stocker/wood restorer but fortunately we do know of a couple with these talents.

I was just off the phone with one of my competitor's and we were discussing the lack of good 16g sidelocks on the market. This certainly is an excellent example and by one of London's finest makers.

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.

James Woodward 20g. O/U in excellent condition ! Built for an American in 1929, these guns were among the finest O/U 's the British ever made
Hammerless Sidelocks
20 gauge

James Woodward 20g. Sidelock ejector with 26” steel barrels. Tons of case color on the locks and beautiful wood with excellent and long dimensions. These prewar 20g. over and under’ s are ever so rare and extremely sought after as they are known for their magic wand quality. Delivered to Abercrombie and Fitch NY on the 29th Dec 1929, the most sought after vintage of British BEST guns. If this Woodward 20g. is a magic wand it was possessed by Merlin.

I find that many look at guns of this type and price and cannot justify the cost but then will go out and buy a new car at this price point and in ten years that car is worth almost nothing. Invest and enjoy a beauty like this little 20 and in ten years it will be worth considerably more than the price, not less or nothing like their 10 year old car. Take this opportunity to make a solid investment while allowing you to own and enjoy what many connoisseurs consider to be the paragon of all shotguns.
