This behemoth is really in quite nice condition since she is probably near 150 years old. The bores are quite bright with some light pitting but nothing to worry about as this gun has great minimum wall thickness.

*Note the great modern dimensions!

We apologize for the inconvenience of not having professional pictures. Our professional photo set up will not take guns with 39" barrels. This shotgun is in nitro proof (and can be shot with black of course) so if you have always wanted to have an 8 bore at a reachable price this is your opportunity!

Purdey top lever Island lock ~ No cast so ok for the right handed or left handed shooter!
Hammerguns
12 gauge
5125
8273
This find Purdey dates from 1870 and was sleeved in modern times which has allowed it to become a very shootable and functional piece of history at an affordable price.

*If you are unfamiliar with the term "Island Lock" take a look at the right hand or left-hand lock on this shotgun and you will note that the stock wood goes all the way around the lock, thus making the lock an "island" of steel in wood. Purdey is well known with this feature, but I have seen other English makers do this also, possibly copying Purdey.

A very cute and handy .410 with longer barrels than most. What a fun dove or first double for a young shooter. For the adult the LOP could obviously be lengthened with a pad up to 14 5/8". There is some light pitting in the bores, but the walls are very thick, and the gun is in it nitro proof.

This fine petite flower was made in 1890 so we can ship direct.

This is a classic BPE double rifle from Scotland. The rifling is quite strong but near the chambers there is pitting but cleans up to very nice toward the muzzle. I believe this rifle will shoot extremely well.

The forend is missing its horn and the sights are missing the two folding behind the main sight. The gun is slighty off face so does need a rejoin soon.

James Purdey BEST with very rare Woodward patent cocking indicators from 1915 in its makers O&L case
Hammerless Sidelocks
12 gauge
5252
21066
A very nice Purdey built within months of the start of the first world war. Many English men lost their lives in this conflict and all the English gun makers lost many of their best talent. In this case Purdey was at its peak with all its best gunsmiths. This gun is in very nice condition and comes in its makers case. The dimensions are excellent for about 80% of my clients.

*This gun balances perfectly on the hinge pin. She comes up extremely natural and without effort.

*This Purdey is unique in that it has two major features from the gunmaker James Woodward. The 29"-barrel length which was promoted by Woodward and the patent cocking indicators Woodward is known for. The Ledger says "Boss on tumbler axles – they look like Woodward cocking-indicators."

Nick Harlow from Purdey's was kind enough to share the following information from the Purdey Ledger:

No. 21066

Completed: 22nd February 1915

For: G.J.R. Cooper

Description: No. 3 of a trio of hammerless ejector game guns

Weight: 6lb. 10½oz.

Calibre: 12-bore

Barrels: 29in. Whitworth Steel

Choke: Tight Cyl & Mod

Stock: 14½in.

These are gorgeous top of the line Churchills. To see the other gun go to our gun ID 4977. If you put that number in the GO box at the top of any of our pages and hit go it will take you right to it.

These London BEST guns date from 1924 and are in very nice condition. These between the war's guns are considered by the British to be the best guns they ever built. The Premier grade locks are "pinless" which was not an easy thing to achieve. The nine lock screws internally do not show externally like on most other sidelocks leaving cleaner lines and more room for undisturbed engraving. They considered this grade their highest grade.

If you are looking for a no nonsense, high condition, Purdey for a fair price it is your day as this is the gun for you. This gun is tight, sound, and has been well cared for and will certainly provide many years of enjoyable use. With proper care, Purdey's don't wear down, they get handed down.

We have priced this Purdey extremely attractively and if you see one of our competitors has one for 10K more know there is a 90% chance ours is as good a gun or better than theirs.

*The photo's for some reason (the bright harsh lights I think) make the sidelocks look polished and super bright. In person they are not that way at all. We will attempt so new pictures soon.

John Dickson shotguns, to this day. are considered some of the very best shotguns ever built in the world.

Churchill Premier ~ Highest grade from 1924 ~ What a super light instinctive upland gun this would make!
Hammerless Sidelocks
12 gauge
5527
2940
The Premier grade is Churchills highest honor. It is an unusually crafted sidelock as the internal lock pins (screws in American terms) do not show on the outside of the locks like found on most all the other English guns. This takes considerably more time and skill to achieve. Internally the locks are crafted as beautiful as any Swiss watch.

In its original makers case this fine shotgun would make a superb upland gun. I personally would open the right barrel to skeet and it would be ready to go! We can get this done for only $85.00 and quickly.

Robert Lisle ~ A wonderful handling British sidelock over and under ~ Once belonged to famous British gun authority Geoffrey Boothroyd
Hammerless Sidelocks

What a fabulous gun in almost every way. The thing that jumps out the most is not the stunning Celtic engraving, not the elegantly swirled English walnut, but, how the gun feels between the hands. This gun has "that" special feeling, the phrase " je ne sais quoi" comes to my mind.

Robert Lisle was in business between 1890 and 1928. It is documented this gun once belonged to renowned British author on English guns Geoffrey Boothroyd. In his book "The British Over and Under shotgun" he discusses the gun on pages 27-30. See photo's here of those pages with some very interesting history on the patents used and on the maker himself.

* I must emphasis that this gun handles like a dream!

Great dimensions, best quality engraving, and a long stock are found on this London "Best" from between the great wars (1931). This gun belonged to an old friend who I hunted alongside for years while he proudly carried this super sidelock. It never let him down and I saw many a wild eastern Oregon rooster fall dead to its charms.

*See the gold crown on the bottom of the receiver. This indicates the gun is their high "Imperial" grade.

This is a very nice Purdey with great dimensions for many. Being sleeved it allows an upland hunter to hunt with a Purdey for half the price of an original barreled gun. How great is that!

*This gun is a perfect weight to handle the common American 2 3/4" shells which is a great advantage. The full chokes are great as it allows one to have them opened to any combination. We have people that can do that quickly, perfectly, and reasonable.

James Purdey & Sons with Connections to Frank Sinatra! Made in 1887 so can ship direct!
Hammerless Sidelocks
12 gauge

This gun has an interesting story that the gun was owned by Frank Sinatra and Frank Pachmayr modified the gun for him so he could shoot better. The son of the last owner relayed to me that his father was sold this gun by Frank Pachmayr and was relayed this story by him when he purchased it. Sinatra was not known to be a particularly good shot. The shortened barrels, open chokes, vent rib, and beavertail forend lend credence to this story. Unfortunately, we have so far not been able to document this history, but the last owner certainly believed it. It is well documented that Frank Pachmayr had many Hollywood stars for customers.

*The gun is set up for Skeet with its very straight stock and skeet chokes. The LOP could be made up to 14 1/2" if a pad were added.

*We have priced this gun based only on the gun's features, so we are not charging a dime for the verbal history that goes with it. If you believe you could help me document the story, I would really appreciate it as I am a huge Sinatra fan and would keep the gun and use it for myself! I keep an autographed fan photo of Sinatra in my office which is by me now as I am writing about this gun.

*This gun was made in 1887 so we can ship direct!

This beautiful Royal grade the company records show having 30" barrels and as the barrels appear original it must be deduced that the barrels were cut down to 27" in its lifetime. They have no choke measuring Cyl in both barrels furthers this point.

The barrels were reproofed at 2 3/4"at a later date in London, probably when the barrels were shortened.

Having open chokes, this would make an outstanding close in bird gun for shooting over point. With modern wads Cylinder bore is capable of perfect patterns out to 25 yards and more.

I believe all the case colors and barrel black and stock finish are all original on this light little sidelock even though it dates from 1938. The dimensions are great for many and if was one to open the left choke some it would make an ideal upland bird gun. We can arrange to have this done for only $85.00 and can be done in three weeks or less!

*Note the rolled trigger guard and the locks featuring cocking indicators. This gun obviously has not seen a lot of use in its life and is a super value for a true between the wars London sidelock.

This fine London sidelock was built in 1925, a time when London without argument produced its very best guns. This is an excellent example and is in very nice condition featuring great stock dimensions for many. The rose and scroll engraving is sharp and stunning. The wood to metal fit is as good as can be found. The 14" LOP is all wood so if we arranged for a pad, we could get up to just shy of 15" or less if needed of course. Overall, this is a stunning, light weight, bird gun.

*Extra features include chopperlump barrels and bushed firing pins.

This gun is light and very handy between the hands. To long for me or I believe I would shoot it very well! Game scene engraving from this period usually looks like cartoon birds and dogs, but this one has exceptionally realistic animals.

*if stock extensions are not your thing, we can arrange this to be removed and replaced with a leather covered or conventional pad quite easily.

I love how this beautiful double feels between the hands. A London best vintage gun that is tight and field ready. The barrels are bright and shiny. Henry Atkin worked for James Purdey and then went out on his own a few blocks away to build London BEST guns to compete with Purdey and at this he was very successful.

What a beautiful little shotgun with rather naive game scene engraving reminiscent of the period this gun was built which would be about 1937.

This is a very nice English between the wars (~1927) sidelock for a super price. Don't be put off the by the extension or the long length of pull as we can remove the extension and have a checkered butt done or a pad added instead of the extension for a very nominal charge to achieve a LOP that will work for you.

This gun being near 100 years old and still retain over 50% original case color is remarkable. It handles well and is tight on face with excellent bores.

*Note the excellent choking for upland birds which I will guarantee will put more birds in your bag!

William Evans Sidelock with long stock and great dimensions. ~ high grade wood!
Hammerless Sidelocks
12 gauge

This classic William Evans was completed in 1900. It has gorgeous wood and great dimensions. There is some light pitting towards the muzzle but does not appear deep. The gun is tight and appears field ready. There is a very small sliver of wood on the right edge of the forend that is missing. This could be rebuilt. We do that here but the cost to repair would be $200.00

Overall, this gun is ready to use as is or with some light restoration could be a real showstopper. We are pricing it very attractively in the as is condition. Most Evans sidelocks are in the 4-8K range.

The gold initial shield has a very or special family crest that would worth researching! See photograph of it .

Wm. Atkinson & Sons~ Lancaster, Kendel, and Morecambe ~ A lovely 30" barreled English sidelock for a great price
Hammerless Sidelocks
12 gauge
3465
3155
This gun features nitro proofed 30" barrels with mirror bores. Other features include auto ejectors, tight on face barrels to action, and excellent modern stock dimensions cut from a very nice piece of English walnut. The left choke is tighter than many (like me) might want it but remember we can have chokes opened very reasonably. Also, if you need a longer LOP we can provide excellent English style leather covered pads up to 1".

This is a very nice example of an English sidelock. It is well balanced and feels great between the hands as any well made gun should.

I did not know much of this maker so I did some sleuthing on internet and actually found quite a lot:

Built between 1901 and 1905 by address's on rib William Atkinson was the son of Joseph Atkinson of Lancaster. He was born in 1851. By 1871 William had joined his father in the business in Lancaster, but in about 1874 he opened his own business at 52 Stricklandgate, Kendal, Westmoreland; in about 1878 this moved to 8 All Hallows Lane. There may have been a branch of the firm in Preston. In 1874 William and his wife (Eleanor b. 1850) had a son, Joseph Harvey Atkinson, and in 1876 another, Arthur Falder Atkinson (both born in Kendal), they both worked in the business as gunmaker's assistants, there were also had two daughters born in Kendal, Edith (b.1873) and Maud (b.1878) who appear to have worked in the business. In 1881 Joseph Atkinson retired and William took over the business in Lancaster re-naming it William Atkinson. In about 1885 the firm moved to 20 Market Street, between 1890 and 1901 they took over the adjoining premises at 18 Market Street. Between 1890 and 1894 the business in Kendal moved to 58 Highgate. Joseph Atkinson died in the late 1890s, and in 1900 the firm Lancaster business was re-named William Atkinson & Sons. By this time the firm had a substantial trade in bicycles. In about 1901 a branch was opened at 11 Skipton Street, Morecambe, Lancashire. This was probably run by one of the sons, it appears to have closed in about 1905. Between 1901 and 1905 the Kendal business became known as Atkinson & Griffin, it appears to have ceased trading in 1925. Between about 1905 and 1909 the firm in Lancaster occupied premises in North Road. In about 1935 the firm moved to 26 Market Street, Lancaster, but the Lancaster business appears to have closed in 1940. In 1955 Thomas Atkinson & Sons was recorded at 19a Stricklandgate, Kendal. Thomas Atkinson was certainly related, perhaps only distantly. The firm appears to have closed in about 1985.

Existing Army & Navy records show this sidelock was built in 1908 by W.C. Scott. Great dimensions and I really like how this gun opens and closes. It feels like a gun that would be appreciated in the field.

*You know this old girl has seen plenty of service and she does show some scars in handling marks in the wood and blue thinning in places. She would be a great candidate for a light restoration or used and appreciated as is. This gun I noted when first operated did not have auto ejectors. I really like this as having auto ejectors is really one more thing to go wrong and truly in the upland field unnecessary. I will get some flack over this, I am sure! I will agree to disagree.

A very nice sidelock for the price of a boxlock due to the less known name. Carr Brothers started in 1878 on Cloth Hall St., Huddersfield, Yorks. They moved a few times around Huddersfield over the years and seem to have closed there doors in 1913.

Great dimensions and LOP could be made up to near 14 7/8" or less if a pad were added.

W. C. Scott & Son 1888 hammerless sidelock ~ Nitro proofed and we can ship direct, no ffl needed
Hammerless Sidelocks
12 gauge

From 1888 this classic Scott features the wonderful "Crystal Window Indicators", a flag ship at the time for W. C. Scott. They actually gold plated the side of the internal hammer so it would show up better through the window. When the hammer is fired the window is dark. So ever so clever and cool today as I am sure it was then. Only cast on ever so slight so very shootable by a right handed shot also. It could also be bent either way I suspect with ease.

*You may note the minimum wall thickness is on the thin side but this is found where there is little pressure near the muzzle as demonstrated by its fairly recent reproof in London in 2005. The bores have not been modified since that reproof.

Nice barrels on this Coggy sidelock. A high stocked gun for rising birds with a lot of cast off for a beard or broader face. Way too high for me but if it works for you this gun is a bargain. The gun appears to be on face, but I do feel an ever so slight movement. It is so slight I cannot tell where it is coming from so very minor.

James Woodward 16g. in its original makers case
Hammerless Sidelocks
16 gauge
4627
5670
This is a personal gun that I loved and hunted with for many years. I hate to let it go but I have since acquired a matched pair of Woodward 16s that I love to shoot and that were built for the duke of Marlborough back in the early 1890's. I am a Winston Churchill fan and it is fun to believe and is quite probably that he shot the pair I possess in his teens while shooting driven birds on his uncles estate.

Anywho, back to this fine gun! The Woodward ledger tells us This BEST gun was completed October 1st 1902 for Daniel Watney.

I am emotionally connected to this 16 and it will be very hard to let it go. As I write this, I can see with perfect clarity a flushing wild rooster in Eastern Oregon. Wild flushing behind me and hearing it, I quickly turned and nailed that monster bird at about 11:00 at about 30 yards. The late winter afternoon sunlight lit that bird, it almost glowed in all its vibrant colors. The shot was pure fluid as if the gun and I were one.

This gun deserves to make memories like this for its new owner. Perfectly balanced, this gun, if you let it, will handle like a magic wand and will let you make shots you never thought possible. From Purdey's records:

Woodward No. 5670 Completed: 1st October 1902 For: Daniel Watney Description: A hammerless ejector game gun Weight: 5lb. 15oz. Calibre: 16-bore Barrels: 29in. Whitworth Steel Choke: Both ¼ Choke Stock: 14 1/4in.

A beautiful 16ga English sidelock in very nice condition in its maker's case. This gun dates from 1925. These between the war guns are considered the very best and most desirable. The stock dimensions are great for many. If the well-matched wood extension is not wanted, we can arrange for it to be removed and replaced with an English style pad or leather covered pad.

* I am really pleased to offer this great little 16 as I am finding it very hard of late to find them in the UK. They seem to be drying up!

What a very cool 16g. sidelock! The Long barrels and great dimensions make this an upland winner. The chokes are perfect for almost any game suitable to hunt with this gun. They are the same chokes I have in my personal 16g. Woodward.

You many not think you have heard of this English maker, but chances are you have if you know your WWI history. The Vickers machine gun helped win that war and our gun is by the same maker.

EJ Churchill from 1896 ~ Experience a True London "BEST" boxlock
Boxlocks
12 gauge
3947
679
Completed in 1896 this boxlock is exceptional in every way. The fit and finish on this gun is outstanding with some of the best fine scroll work you will find on any gun in England. The wood is of the highest-grade English walnut. We cleaned the gun, and the inside is about as pretty as the outside with the fancy safety sears with every piece highly polished and perfectly fitted. This is perhaps the highest quality boxlock we have ever had in the shop.

We have to remember that in the late 1800's gunmakers did not consider the boxlock to be a cheaper or lesser design but just a "new" design. Keeping this in mind, during this period the best makers would naturally put every bit as much of their skill and craftsmanship into building them as they did their sidelocks. The boxlock was not at that time considered a lesser or entry level shotgun or rifle as they later became for many makers.

*Pre 1898 so we can ship direct, no ffl needed.

John Dickson hammerless boxlock finished October 14th 1887. To be a member of the Dickson club one does not have to have an expensive round action. I personally love this vintage boxlock with its name in gold and beautiful wood and Damascus barrels and at a price the many can afford. It has 30” barrels with plenty of choke in the left barrel and open in the right. The dimensions are great for many. Own a Dickson! $3200.00

No cast on this fine shotgun so could be shot by a left- or right-handed person. The long 30" tubes are impressive with excellent min. wall thickness. Great stock dimensions for most. Excellent engraving and has bushed firing pins. The large pad/extension could be removed and replaced with a standard 1" pad and have LOP of 14 1/2".

*Note that this gun comes with a very nice canvas covered hard case with accoutrement's ( cleaning rod, ends, William Evans chamber brush, snap caps, and oil bottle).

These Webley's are the heart of Birmingham guns being the most reliable and trusted for many years. This is a very nice example featuring about 40% original case color remaining and at least 90% blue. Having 2 3/4" proofed chambers is a plus as well as the excellent stock dimensions and chokes for many.

This would make a great sporting clays gun. There is 90% case color remaining but the blue on the barrels near the breech is almost worn silver around where it was obviously carried many a mile.

The wood is a stunning piece of quarter sawn black walnut, loaded with fiddle and flash on both sides.

Very American dimensions on this Scottish boxlock. With zero cast it could be shot by a right handed or left handed person. It is tight on face and field ready.

Shooting Sportsman (January-February) has a great article about these Scottish boxlocks by Douglas Tate. See page 54. To sum the article up the Scottish makers spent extra time and effort to make their boxlocks superior and unique from the average Birmingham gun.

Built in 1896 so this gun can be shipped direct.

I have a particular fondness for these Westley Gold name guns. They are extremely well made. This one has great dimensions for many and balances and handles extremely well.

The Westley records date this gun to March of 1907 and made for one George Rolleston. Gunsmith Daniel Morgan has put this gun back on face and it is now ready for another lifetime of use.

Williams & Powell with nice wood and condition
Boxlocks

This Powell has great bores and locks up like a vault. Stocked fairly high for the shooter that likes to cheek hard their gun (as they are teaching us to shoot today). The wood is very nice and in great condition. The stock extension is well done but can be removed and replaced with a nice pad if one would like and obviously the left barrel can be opened up to anything one would want for very little money if one does not care for full choke.

Overall, a very nice English boxlock for a more than fair price.

*Note this gun, although from about 1899 still retains at least 50% of its original case color!

One might call these the work horse of the British boxlocks but really that would not be fare. These guns if they were horses they would not be big Clydesdales or Percherons but well-proportioned race horses while also being known for their sturdy nature and reliability. Maybe a quarter horse would be a better comparison!

*This example has at least 60% case color remaining which indicates it has seen little use in its 60-70 years of age.

Good dimensions, condition, and quality and the best part in my book is the beautifully patterned Damascus barrels. They are bright and shiny on the inside with only few very minor pitting (not deep) towards the muzzle that is very hard to see. * Note all the original case color!

The gun is tight on face. I detect a very well-done and obviously strong crack repair towards the pistol grip cap if I put the gun in the sun. No big deal but like to list everything I see.

A very attractive nitro Damascus gun for a very reasonable price. Apparently built about 1880, the year when the name was changed to Thomas Jackson and Son.

Nitro proofed Damascus with good walls and choking that will put more game birds in your game bag. The dimensions are high like our more modern guns so many of you will like them. The wood is actually quite beautiful but would if one wanted to make it show be ready for a new oil finish and have the checkering picked up. This is not expensive, and we are pricing the gun right so one could afford to do this. Of course, one would not need to do anything with it at all as it is tight and ready to share lead with your favorite bird!

Bushed firing pins and high-grade wood are both top notch features on this shotgun by this famous maker. Pay attention to the 5/8" cast off for a right-handed shooter. It seems a bit extreme, but the gun comes up pretty nice as is although it could be easily bent over a 1/4" if wanted.

A very nice English boxlock at a super price. There is a chip in the toe of the butt plate that is easily repairable. It has a lovely horn pistol grip cap and horn forend escutcheon. This gun has tight bores, is in proof, and locks up tight.

Interesting history of C.G. Bonehill:

C. G. Bonehill was an English gunmaker from Birmingham, England who lived from 1831 to 1900 1. He established his own firm in 1851 and was recorded at 33 Charlotte Street with a factory in Morville Street in 1872 1. In 1873, he moved the whole business to the Belmont Firearms Works, Belmont Row 1. C. G. Bonehill was a Guardian of The Birmingham Proof House 1. He was related to and may have been associated with O. G. Bonehill of Belmont Firearms Works also of Birmingham 2. He held 4 US patents issued in the 1880s 2. From about 1900 to 1965, the company produced ball & shot guns and combination guns, and they made the Britannia air rifle 1. They were pioneers in the mechanization of gun manufacture, making the “Belmont Interchangeable” shotguns 1. From about 1900, C G Bonehill were the main suppliers of rifles to the “Society of Miniature Rifle Clubs” 1. The Society was founded to encourage rifle shooting amongst working class men, and it was largely responsible for establishing smallbore rifle shooting as a sport in England 1. For this purpose, old .303 Martini-Enfield rifles were re-barrelled to .22 rimfire and sold at very reasonable prices 1

No case colors left but a solid gun and well in proof. There is a slight solder gap between the rib and left barrel near the breech, but it is really inconsequential as the barrels ring like church bells. I am sure it has been there since new. The gun is vault tight with excellent bores.

Serial number records show us this shotgun was built in 1902. As you can see in the pictures the bluing on the barrels have multiple light scratches but the barrels are tight on face with nice bores. We have priced the gun to leave some room for a barrel blacking.

This shotgun features a longer than normal forend which I really like as it would be excellent for clay shooting!

Boxlocks

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.

A very nice little 16g. but with only basic engraving but great stock dimensions for many. There are some case colors remaining. The gun has been 2 3/4" nitro proofed but considering the weight I would avoid the heavy American 16g. loads as they could cause you to need new dental work.

*If you don't care for the wooden stock extension we can easily help you have it replaced with a recoil pad.

William Powell & Son 16g. boxlock from 1880 and it still shoots great! Antique so can ship direct!

This gun, while it has a fair number of handling marks and could use a new barrel black, is tight on face and shoots great. We, here at the shop, have a 7:00 AM Thursday morning clay shoot every week here on the property, and we all choose a gun or two to take out and give it a try.

I chose at the last minute to take this rather tired looking old waitress to the shoot and like a great waitress, she performed perfectly and was simply a lot of fun.

The gun is ready to shoot as is, but you know, it has very pretty marbled French walnut so if one were to remove the extension, replace with a nice pad, give it a new oil finish, and re-black the barrels the gun would become an elegant lady.

*Remember, this we can ship direct as it is antique.

William Evans from London 20g. with great dimensions from between the wars

This is a very nice little 20g. boxlock from William Evans. It dates from 1926. I appreciate the fairly modern dimensions and how the gun feels between the hands. What a great little game gun! I will not say this gun is in pristine condition, there is some browning in places and the barrels could use a reblack. What I will say is it is tight on face, with very nice bores, and if restored a bit or left as is, it will perform.

* I want to make a note to say that finding these little 20g. guns in the UK has just been getting harder and harder for me. I am pleased to offer this one.

I have hunted with and I guess will admit to collecting these Manufrance French trigger plate double guns for years. They still fascinate me. This great example features chopperlump barrels and the retractable in-stock sling which works perfect. The Rifled barrel is excellent and sharp. The shotgun barrel appears mirror when examined from the breech but when inspected from the muzzle I can see some light pitting in places. Only cosmetic but I want you all to know it is there.

This gun is in very nice condition with much original case color remaining. I am told you can shoot shot out of the rifled barrel also so can still be used as a double barrel shotgun.

This is a wonderful double rifle with excellent bores. It appears so much to be a sidelock I had to remove the sideplates to be sure it was a side plated gun. The claw mounted scope is a crystal clear Leupold vari-x III1.5x5 in excellent condition. BSW was the name of the gun making business in Suhl after the Nazi's took over the the Simpson business. It was changed back to Simpson after WWII.

Featuring near 90% original case color and near perfect bores this is a stunning little hammer double rifle. No markings on the gun indicating caliber but the measurement's of a the chamber cast show it remarkably close to our 38-55 Winchester so there is very good chance this brass could be used. See scan of chamber cast and measurements. Keep in mind that chambers are usually slightly over size to actual brass dimensions to prevent sticking.

The action retains near 100% original case color and the same for the blacking on the barrels. The beautiful wood is excellently checkered and has very few handling marks. In other words, this gun is in almost new condition.

This is a classic BPE double rifle from Scotland. The rifling is quite strong but near the chambers there is pitting but cleans up to very nice toward the muzzle. I believe this rifle will shoot extremely well.

The forend is missing its horn and the sights are missing the two folding behind the main sight. The gun is slighty off face so does need a rejoin soon.

What a joy this would be to carry and hunt with in the field at well under 6 lbs. I have hunted with this cartridge for years and found it totally effective on everything from Moose on down. It is very similar to our 30'06 and in fact that cartridge was much copied from the 8x57. The bore on this rifle is excellent

The claw mounted scope is a crystal clear Leupold scope 1x4 VARI-X IIc.

*I, having had the rifle several months just detected a professionally repaired crack in the wrist. It is so well done it even fooled me even though my training and expertise is in invisible crack repair. It is extremely well done and obviously super strong, but I am lowering the price to account for this. An excellent rifle in a super easy to get caliber. I will even throw in a box of 20 new ammunition to go with it.

The forend screw is brass which is not original but all else is very stock which I love. The rifling is strong showing little wear but there is a gray frost between. All that I see with this one, the rest is all positive. The rifle is the "Take Apart" model meaning the action and barrel can be removed from the stock without tools, basically a form of a quick take down rifle.

I do know this gun will shoot super and be a joy in the woods. The Model 1903 is probably my personal favorite deer rifle ever.

Hosford and Co. Wall thickness gauge
Men's Collectibles
10 gauge

This wall thickness gauge, complete with table clamping barrel vise, is the most accurate wall thickness gauge that we are aware of for the money (the next more accurate gauge is digital and costs over 2K). This gauge will measure 4 gauge through .410. It may look intimidating to use but let me assure you it is not. The secret and success of this gauge is in that the barrels are easily held suspended by the table clamped barrel vise. The gauge, once zeroed is slid over the barrel and quite easily moved back and forth while one just watches the gauge to read the actual barrel wall thickness. There is no math to do. The ingenious barrel holder allows you to easily rotate the barrels allowing you access to areas of the barrel near the ribs. On the vertical gauge this is quite difficult but on this gauge very easy. This gauge also has the feature of a finer pointed tip on the gauge allowing you to measure inside many pits. I cannot stress the value of having a quality wall thickness gauge if one is a serious collector and purchaser of high end double guns. THE FIRST GUN YOU REFUSE AS A RESULT OF USING THIS GAUGE PAYS FOR THE GAUGE MANY TIMES OVER. If you do not understand the significance of the last sentence, please reread it. We will not make any significant money selling these gauges. It is our intent to have educated buyers. It is our belief that our client’s best interests are also ours. Most all of our best clients already have this gauge but I would like to see all of our clients with one. These gauges were designed and hand built by Jon Hosford, a natural engineer, double gun lover, collector, and wing shooter (not to mention his appetite for fine red wine, scotch, and good food!)

See Jon's gauge in use and learn how to use it on youtube by typing in a search on youtube: “Hosford & Co., Shotgun barrel gauge, Part 1” or clicking this url: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1jQZn4kohH4

W. C. Scott & Son 1888 hammerless sidelock ~ Nitro proofed and we can ship direct, no ffl needed
Left-handed Guns
12 gauge
4264
43881
From 1888 this classic Scott features the wonderful "Crystal Window Indicators", a flag ship at the time for W. C. Scott. They actually gold plated the side of the internal hammer so it would show up better through the window. When the hammer is fired the window is dark. So ever so clever and cool today as I am sure it was then. Only cast on ever so slight so very shootable by a right handed shot also. It could also be bent either way I suspect with ease.

*You may note the minimum wall thickness is on the thin side but this is found where there is little pressure near the muzzle as demonstrated by its fairly recent reproof in London in 2005. The bores have not been modified since that reproof.

C.G. Bonehill ~ The Belmont "Interchangeable" ~ No cast so good for left or right handed
Left-handed Guns
12 gauge

A very nice English boxlock at a super price. There is a chip in the toe of the butt plate that is easily repairable. It has a lovely horn pistol grip cap and horn forend escutcheon. This gun has tight bores, is in proof, and locks up tight.

Interesting history of C.G. Bonehill:

C. G. Bonehill was an English gunmaker from Birmingham, England who lived from 1831 to 1900 1. He established his own firm in 1851 and was recorded at 33 Charlotte Street with a factory in Morville Street in 1872 1. In 1873, he moved the whole business to the Belmont Firearms Works, Belmont Row 1. C. G. Bonehill was a Guardian of The Birmingham Proof House 1. He was related to and may have been associated with O. G. Bonehill of Belmont Firearms Works also of Birmingham 2. He held 4 US patents issued in the 1880s 2. From about 1900 to 1965, the company produced ball & shot guns and combination guns, and they made the Britannia air rifle 1. They were pioneers in the mechanization of gun manufacture, making the “Belmont Interchangeable” shotguns 1. From about 1900, C G Bonehill were the main suppliers of rifles to the “Society of Miniature Rifle Clubs” 1. The Society was founded to encourage rifle shooting amongst working class men, and it was largely responsible for establishing smallbore rifle shooting as a sport in England 1. For this purpose, old .303 Martini-Enfield rifles were re-barrelled to .22 rimfire and sold at very reasonable prices 1

William Evans from London 20g. with great dimensions from between the wars

This is a very nice little 20g. boxlock from William Evans. It dates from 1926. I appreciate the fairly modern dimensions and how the gun feels between the hands. What a great little game gun! I will not say this gun is in pristine condition, there is some browning in places and the barrels could use a reblack. What I will say is it is tight on face, with very nice bores, and if restored a bit or left as is, it will perform.

* I want to make a note to say that finding these little 20g. guns in the UK has just been getting harder and harder for me. I am pleased to offer this one.

This Coggy 20 is very clean and is tight and handles well. Note all the remaining case color and blue.

The stock has 1/4" cast at the comb as at the heel to accommodate a shorter neck and wider face like mine. It comes up great on me! To bad I am hooked on 16g. guns or it would be one for me to keep.

This is an excellent example of a Holland Royal. It is extremely lively and well balanced. The Holland book dates this gun from 1912-1913 when some of the best Hollands ever made were completed. This fine Holland has perfect chokes for upland hunting.

*After handling it some more I think "Lively" is an understatement! This gun comes in its classic vintage oak & leather case.
