This massive 10g. has excellent and thick barrels and features reasonable stock dimensions. The wrist has had an invisible repair that we are aware of but it was reinforced with four steel wedges so should be stronger than original wood.

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.

Charles Hellis High Grade Sidelock in Stunning Condition ! Original Case and Sales Invoice from 1935!
Hammerless Sidelocks
12 gauge
3732
3859
They say if you wait long enough everything will repeat itself. Well to repeat oneself it has to happen a first time. Finding this gun I experienced my first time for finding a gun in its original maker’s case with its original sales invoice with it! Dating it by the invoice this fine sidelock was sold November 1st 1935. Also found in the case was a second invoice from November 26th 1946 for 200 “guaranteed accuracy” 12 bore cartridges. Judging from the condition of the shotgun I have to wonder if the 200 shells were ever used!

Opening this case is a time warp as one see’s the gun has been left relatively undisturbed in its 83 year rest retaining 80% or better of its case color, blue, and wood finish. At 6 lbs. 2 oz. the engraved crossed feathers on the action are no lie that this fine shotgun is a “feather weight.”

A truly rare find. I am not holding my breath to find another like this one.

James Purdey 12g field ready. A true Edwardian Purdey, built when they made their best! Were having a very Purdey sale on this one!
Hammerless Sidelocks
12 gauge

This true BEST quality Purdey was built during the Edwardian era being delivered to Lord Alfred Fitzroy the 11th of November 1892. See a copy of the original entry in the Purdey ledger and history in the photo's attached.

Given a new life with nitro sleeved barrels (with recent quality blacking) which were built and proofed in the UK. Modern stock dimensions make this gun a great choice for the field.

This is the gun featured in the Shooting Sportsman article by Roger Catchpole last spring. It was titled "The Purdey & the Partridge ,A gun’s provenance as related to Huns" and was in the March /April issue. Email me and I will email you a copy.

In material things it is rare when history, craftsmanship, and function become one but when it does one should seize the opportunity. By Roger Catchpole

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.

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

William Evans worked for James Purdey and then Holland and Holland until he went out on his own in London in 1883. He was proud of his Purdey experience and put on the rib of many of his guns "William Evans from Purdey's. Purdey no doubt was not to happy about this but they could do little as they had advertised themselves in the same way near their beginning by advertising "James Purdey from Manton's."

This sidelock is in great condition and a super value in a London sidelock. It is tight on face and has very nice bores with no pitting. The gun was completed in 1954.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

When I first received this gun and put it together for the first time I assumed it was a Purdey 16g. and was surprised to read the name of Henry Atkin on the rib. Absolute best quality this gun is built on the Purdey (Beesley) self opening action. It features long and sexy 29" barrels with 2 3/4" nitro proofs which have very shiny bores. This is the ultimate upland bird gun!

*Note the long LOP and it still weighs well under 6 lbs!

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.

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.

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
