James Purdey hammerless self opener sidelock with rare Grant style side lever in its makers case (click for more info)

12 gauge - Hammerless Sidelocks

James Purdey was kind enough to share their records on this fine shotgun:

No. 11621 Completed: 1883 For: A.M. Cardwell Description: A hammerless non-ejector game gun Weight: 6lb. 3oz. Calibre: 12-bore Barrels: 28½in. Whitworth Choke: Plain & ‘Choke’ Stock: 14¼in. Notes: Sidelever Action with intercepting safeties

I showed this gun to my good friend Malcom McGreger as he is considered quite the expert on vintage Purdey's. He said this is the first one he as ever seen with a sidelever! The original makers case is really cool!

*Note the light weight at 6lbs. 2.5 oz.
