Hammond Brothers of 49 Jewry Street Winchester England ~ A prime example of the high quality and value from an English provincial maker (click for more info)

12 gauge - Hammerless Sidelocks

This fine sidelock dates from about 1900, right in the middle of the Edwardian period and when some of the best English shotguns were ever produced. This example weeps with the quality this period was capable of.

I love the long 30" barrels and sensible choking. I would perhaps open the right barrel to near cylinder but besides that would not change a thing as the stock dimensions are quite modern with a great LOP.

*Note the beautiful fences and best quality engraving. Hammond is a very old English gun making name. Isaac Hammond opened shop in 1829 and his two sons took over and renamed the business Hammond Brothers in 1878.
