MacNaughton of Edinburgh Classic Scottish Round Action with Stunningly beautiful and Original Damascus
Boxlocks
12 gauge
3893
3028
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.

Great barrels on this droplock. We can cut the long extension down to any pull you would like shorter to leave a checkered butt. We could also remove the extension and install a best leather pad for a 14" LOP.

If one opened up the right barrel to near cylinder this would make an awesome upland bird gun.

Manufrance Ideal Grade 2R ~ This is the Classic French Round Action
Boxlocks
12 gauge

Built on a unique but 100% trigger plate action this is a gun that I have always been intrigued with. I like everything about them except for the safe which is located to the right and left of the trigger guard. It functions fine but I don't find them as ergonomic as the top safe.

So, despite the safety, I still shoot, promote and get excited about these guns as they are worth having, shooting and appreciating due to their great balanced round action and features. This grade and higher feature a rising bite third fastener similar to the coveted Rigby rising third bite. The pull back lever behind the trigger guard opens the gun and is extremely ergonomic. It is out of the way and very easy to operate.

C.S. Rosson of 13 Market Street Derby ~ A very elegant little English gun for the $
Boxlocks
12 gauge

41150
Update! Jason and I cannot figure out why we still have this gun as it is in wonderful condition. Sometimes the market makes no sense and our clients miss the bargains. To confirm our suspicions we took this light little English shotgun out to the clay field to put her through her paces. We were both extremely impressed in how well the gun performed and felt so well balanced and so at ease between the hands. This gun is a bargain.

C.S. Rosson was a very well respected maker in England during their day. This is a very nice little 6 1/2 pound game gun which would make a super first English double. It is in very nice original condition, has great stock dimensions, crisp trigger pulls, and is well balanced.

The full choke in the left with cylinder in the right is a common English choking and was effective in driven shooting. If one opens the left barrel to a light modified and leave the right barrel as is this gun would be a fabulous upland bird shotgun. We can arrange for this and the cost is only $70.

Built in 1904 this Parker would be a great gun to shoot for most as it has very good dimensions, at least for a Parker of this vintage. Typically guns from this period have 3" of drop at heel or more.

The extra full chokes would make this great for turkey hunting or allows one for only $70.00 per barrel open the chokes to any desired amount.

Upland hunters pay attention. This is a very sound, strong, well made English boxlock for a super price. At only 6 lbs. 9 oz. she would be a pleasure to carry all day. Better than to just carry, this little gun was built to swing on flighting birds. She balances just forward of the hinge pin on the iron resulting in an ever so light barrel weight forward... ...what many of us consider the perfect gun balance. Note the gun is cased in a vintage but solid English canvas case with trade label, cleaning rod, and cleaning ends, and snap caps.

Beesley is a very old and respected name in the London gun trade. Frederick started his apprenticeship at William Moore & Grey where I am sure he worked with many of the gun makers from Joseph Manton. Men that helped begin the making of high end and quality double guns. Frederick Beesley is most famous for being the inventor of the self opening mechanism that Purdey adopted in around 1880 and and is still in use by them today. This boxlock is tight and field ready and quite a deal for a London gun.

12 gauge

A solid English waterfowl gun with great dimensions for a fair price. Do I need say more?

The original proof marks are 3" for a 1 1/2" load and it was recently reproofed for 2 3/4" which I know makes no sense. Consulting with proof experts, we believe that the gun is out of the original proof in the right barrel by only one thousandths so it was resubmitted for new proof and the proof house screwed up and marked it for 2 3/4" instead of 3" accidentally. Proof house employees are government employees who are human just like the rest of us and make mistakes. The thing too remember is this is a very strong gun!

This gun has a lot to offer for the price. Wood worthy of a Boss or Purdey for one. It is tight on face and ready to shoot. There is honest engraving wear showing this old girl has spent a considerable amount of time afield.

I detect and old stock repair in the wrist that has been expertly done and reinforced with an extended top tang. It was so well done it was only because of the extended tang that I was able to figure it out as it is virtually impossible to see without magnification and in just the right light.

Someone carried and loved this gun. The checkering on the forend and the butt has nearly been worn off! When I was first offered this gun I did not at first look think I would want it. I obviously changed my mind as I found the gun tight on face with nice bores. The trigger pulls were good. The wall thickness was great and the barrels still had all their choke. In other words, this gun is ready to go and will give many more years of faithful service! Its like the 20 year old horse we had that went on to live to over thirty! Looks can be deceptive. ? Use the gun as is as a great backup gun or do an easy restoration. It is up to you. Either way this is a great gun for this kind of money.

Manufrance Ideal Grade 2 with nice long barrels and LOP
Boxlocks
16 gauge

Very pretty wood (a restock) on this little Ideal with nice long barrels. This grade does not feature the rising bite featured on some higher grade Ideal guns but it does have the classic double under-bite with the true trigger plate action. I see some epoxy bedding material in places where the wood meets the action but this will not in anyway affect performance and allows us to sell this gun at a much reduced price.

There is some light pitting in the bores which could be removed but if it were me I would take this light lady afield just as she is and enjoy her doing what she does best.

Manufrance Ideal Round action in 16g. ~ a true trigger plate round action from France , an excellent value and super light!
Boxlocks

Do you like French wine and food like myself? If so you might consider a classic French double. The Manufrance "Ideal" with its amazing rising bite is a great choice.

Nicely restocked with good dimensions, great wall thickness, and solid chokes, this true trigger plate round action has a lot to offer. There is very light pitting in the bores which could easily be removed (or left and shoot it as is as I would do). Featuring the classic "eye glass" trigger guard and nice long 29" chopper lump barrels. I love how these guns open by pulling back on the lever behind the trigger guard which is very ergonomic.

If you know me, you will know I love these guns. Give me a call and I would be glad to let you know why.

I like this little Webley 20 gauge. She is tight on face and has nice blacking on the barrels and 50% case color remaining indicating she has lots of life left in her.

The stock has the well matched extension which we could remove and replace with a pad or we could shorten the extension and checker it to your LOP.

Located at 91 Albion Street in Leeds England Linsley Brothers built this little 20 gauge in 1941. In the heat of WWII German bombing it is wonderful to see that English gun making was not at a standstill.

This example is tight on face and field ready. A recoil pad can easily be added for a 14 1/8" LOP or wouldn't it be perfect as is for a first double for a younger son or daughter or grandchild.

William Richards of Liverpool England ~ A nice little 20g. which would make a great upland gun
Boxlocks

This great little 20g. has wonderful stock dimensions and chokes that will put birds in your bag. The gun is tight on face and field ready. There is some light pitting near the muzzles inside both barrels but nothing deep and because of this we can offer this little English beauty at a very attractive price.

William Richards, often confused with Westley Richards, was a well established and respected gun maker in Liverpool who opened his business in 1780. My research shows the business under that name was open to at least 1996. That is 216 years!

Nigel Browns books lists this gun maker in Cornwall England from 1883-1890. They have no record of him after that.

Light and balanced well this would make a great gun for a shorter, fairer, or younger shot with its 13 5/8" LOP. This gun was sleeved by famous Birmingham gunmakers Westley Richards and they did an excellent job.
