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!

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.

Daniel Fraser is one of my favorite Scotish gun makers and especially rifle makers. This gun has excellent bores. Built in 1890. *The barrels have light but very present pitting on the outside of the right barrel. I do believe this could be struck off and re-blacked to look excellent.

Mortimer & Son Double Rifle from Scotland ~ A bit of a project but well worth the effort and priced right!
Hammerguns

NVN
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.
