W.C. Scott Massive 10g with excellent 32" barrels
Hammerless Sidelocks
10 gauge
3906
43551
Great wall thickness and chokes will make this classic and long barreled Scott a great waterfowl or wild Turkey gun. *Note the beautiful wood and Damascus pattern.

This gun shows well the classic Scott patent of the crystal window cocking indicators. The glass window allows one to see the gold plated hammer when the gun is cocked. When fired the window is dark. I have always thought this feature to be way cool!

Boss & Co. Sidelock with original nitro proofed barrels and the coveted sidelever ~ A Boss Round Action in its makers case

If this gun was a 16g. I would not let it out of my hands. I only shoot 16g. guns so those of you that like to shoot the 12g. have a rare opportunity. This Boss features a rounded frame with back action locks and a sidelever which I consider one of the most ergonomic action designs ever conceived.

Note the excellent measurements on this shotgun. The 30" nitro proofed barrels are beautiful. We can have a leather covered pad added to achieve over a 15" LOP for you taller folks. This is a beautiful and rare Boss.

This gun dates from 1934 . A very nice Dickson from between the wars with great wall thickness and dimensions. This is the period that many consider to be the pinnacle of the UK gunmaking trade. The Bores are bright and shiny with a few pits in the right barrel towards the muzzle but in proof and nothing deep

Holland & Holland Sidelock from 1906, cased with great dimension and barrels ~ Own a Holland!
Hammerless Sidelocks
12 gauge

Factory records show this fine Holland left their shop May 4 1906. This makes it a true Edwardian shotgun. It is listed as a #2 grade which people in the know means it is of the quality of the Royal grade but without the full coverage engraving. I am sure I will get some other opinions on this but I have had many Royal grade guns over the years and also this grade and on the inside the design, fit and finish, are identical. I would be glad to provide interior pictures of the beautiful bar action locks.

A long LOP which could be made near an inch longer with a new leather covered pad. We can arrange for this. The drop at heel and comb are modern and fit many shooters. The checkering and the wood are in excellent condition. I particularly like the 30" steel barrels with sensible choking that will put birds in the bag.< P> Overall an excellent English sidelock with a deserved name synonymous for quality.

Stephen Grant Sidelock with stunning Nitro Proofed Damascus Barrels in its makers case
Hammerless Sidelocks

Some of you know me and that I am attracted to quality Damascus guns. This gun pulled me across the room when I saw it in a rack in England. From that distance I could see it was a shotgun of the highest form without knowing the makers name. Much to my delight I found on close inspection a Stephen Grant, one of my favorite makers. The condition of this fine shotgun is very nice and appears in original condition seeing little if no restoration. There is a small stock extension which we could remove and replace with a fine leather covered pad if one would like for a LOP up to 15 1/2"

Completed in 1903 this is a true Edwardian era gun ( Queen Victoria died in 1901 thank you Austin). The gun is found in an original Grant case which also is in very nice original condition.

Does anyone recognize the family crest in the stock?

The real bonus besides the condition is the modern stock dimensions. At 6 lbs. 2 oz. this would make an incredible woodcock, quail, or grouse gun. I also know it would hold its own in the upland fields and cliff sides after Hungarian partridge and chukar.

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.

Stephen Grant "BEST" Sidelock ~ What a wonderful shotgun
Hammerless Sidelocks

Stephen Grant. He worked for Boss for awhile and then gave his notice, moved next door, and hung his shingle. In not long he was counted among England's greatest gunmakers. It is said Boss and Grant were on good terms and often shared work when one needed help. I observed an example of this once when I found some filers initials on a Grant that looked familiar. I realized I had seen them on a Boss that I had!

This is a super example of what Grant could do and at a very attractive price. Note the 2 3/4" nitro proofs.

William Powell and Son Sidelock in very nice condition in its makers case ~ This is a super deal on an extremely nice English sidelock
Hammerless Sidelocks
12 gauge
4136
12001
James Woodward built a lot of Best guns with 29" barrels and this gun proves that other great makers like William Powell built guns with this barrel length also. I really do like this length as to me it is the best of both worlds. They swing well but are light enough to carry all day.

This Sidelock was once one of pair but the number one gun it seems is lost to time. The near full coverage scroll engraving is very crisp and retains some case color, near 40%. The gun locks up vault tight and the barrels are in very good order. They are bright, ring well. They do show some very light frosting but absolutely no deep pitting of any kind. We can arrange to have this frosting removed to become mirror if your one of those who demands perfection.

The case does appear to be an original Powell case. I note when we took the picture it was when the gun was just unpacked from England. This case will clean up nice and we will do that before the gun ships out.

Surviving company records show our gun was sold to Major S.J. Symons on 14 September 1907. It came back to Powell and was sold 2nd hand on 13 December 1945 to Major H.D. Semist

We have had a few Charles Ingram guns over the years and I have always admired them. They were consistently of exceptional quality. I have heard in the trade they were best known in England and Scotland for their exceptional rifles but strangely enough I have never seen or possessed one, only shotguns.

This nicely cased sidelock is in wonderful condition. The rose and scroll engraving is exceptional.

For those of you that perceive you do not like shorter barrels (these are 26") I would love to put this gun in your hands to shoulder and swing. The way that it is balanced it feels like you’re swinging a long barreled gun! I have often heard woman say that length does not matter (Why were they telling me this?) and I think that in this case at least that us men should believe them.

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 gun was built @ 1899 and is with its newer sleeved barrels is nitro proofed and field ready.

Henry Atkin ~As stated on the Gun "Formerly of James Purdey" ~ A London Best for a very reasonable price
Hammerless Sidelocks
12 gauge
3964
1183
This gun is a true Edwardian gun dating from the dusk of 1905. With Best quality throughout it is hard to find fault with the dimensions, quality of engraving and barrels. The gun is tight on face and field ready. The wood is very beautiful but could if wanted benefit from a new oil finish and restoration of the checkering.

Some, as in myself in certain circumstances, prefer to use and enjoy the gun with the earned patina of time and use. If one would like to have us restore the wood and checkering I am very pleased to say we can now offer that service with the addition of very talented Jason Bartel to our restoration department. This wood restoration we can now do for an additional price of $1000.00. I guarantee the results will be authentic and outstanding and you will be beyond satisfied or you don't have to pay us a dime for the service.

This is a beautiful London sidelock. The barrels were rebuilt ( by sleeving or mono-blocking) by well renowned Westley Richards. As well as having London best engraving and craftsmanship this gun is solid, tight on face, and field ready.

* I would like to point out if this stock is too long or short for you we can have a leather covered pad added for a very fair price to fit the gun to your needs.

This Hussey, unlike in general its female counter parts, reeks of class. Although just border engraved do not let the lack of makeup fool you! This shotgun is beautiful inside and out, built to the highest standards of the Edwardian era.

Balanced just slightly forward of the hinge pin this shotgun handles perfectly. The bores are bright and clean with excellent walls and the barrels are tight on face. Own a London BEST for a fraction of the cost than if you were to buy a London first name of which the quality would be none better

Other high grade features include modern dimensions, useful choking, and beautiful 30" nitro proofed steel barrels.

Built between the wars in 1920. In the UK they consider the between the war sidelocks like this to be the best they ever built.

Cogswell & Harrison True Sidelock For A Super Price ~ She is tight with great barrels and chokes so completely field ready

Built in 1937 this little between the wars beauty is in very nice condition. She features very tight on face steel barrels with excellent wall thickness and chokes. The stock dimensions being quite modern are perfect for many. This action features assisted opening.

C&H produced a large number of fair quality but inexpensive boxlocks which I believe resulted in a reputation of lesser priced guns. What is not well known is that they built very nice higher grade and quality guns like the one we are offering here. Whoever gets this gun will be getting a huge amount of quality for their dollars spent.

Army & Navy Sidelock from about 1896 with wonderful steel barrels and stock dimensions

This is a very nice English sidelock. Made for J.Harrison Esquire on 25th of June in 1897 for 20 pounds, She is tight on face with barrels that ring well and have excellent wall thickness. It is quite possible this gun was London built as it has its original London proof marks on the barrel flats.

The Bores on this fine shotgun are extremely bright and shiny with no pitting or dents that we can see. The stock dimensions are excellent for many with a sensible choice of choking. This would make someone and excellent first English shotgun.

This is a well made gun but has had some stock modifications done by a professional to fit a specific shooter. It would make a great restock project or just shoot it as it is. The current dimensions are very modern. It would also for the artisan be fun to try grain painting and make the stock changes invisible.

I have always appreciated William Evans shotguns. While they had their guns built for them in the London and Birmingham trade they obviously required a very high standard with details and quality that set them apart from many other makers. This dedication to quality is certainly a factor in why they are still in business today.

16g. Sidelocks are very hard for me to find so I was extremely excited to find this little gem in the UK and bring it across the pond. The non –selective single trigger (believe me that is a good thing, selective triggers are the ones that give single triggers a reputation for failure) is crisp and works perfectly. Choking is perfect for upland hunting or woodcock or southern bobwhites. I love 16g. and I really like this gun.

Boss 20g. Sidelock in exceptional condition and investment grade original. Featuring 28”whitworth steel barrels, 75% case color, 98% blue, in its makers case. This petite flower weighs in at 5 lbs. 4.5 oz., lighter than many 28 gauges. Stocked to the fences, assisted opening, iconic and crisp Boss single trigger, chopper-lump barrels, and stunning wood with super dimensions, this Boss has all and more of what we would expect from a Boss. What I expect most of all from Boss is what I think is their true trade mark, “Balance.” Let me tell you, get this gun between your hands and you will not want to let it go as you would feel your letting go of a part of yourself.

Twenty gauge Boss doubles are like prime real estate. They seldom come up for sale, are priced at the top of the market, and there are never any regrets in owning as they are always worth what you paid and more. A solid investment at $57000.00

Alex Henry has found new life as a 20g shotgun! What a lovely little gun this has become
Hammerless Sidelocks
20 gauge

Once a masculine double rifle from 1894 this piece of Scottish gun making history has evolved into a superb almost feminine 20g. sidelock that will please the members of the shooting sports for another 100 years or I hope, even more. I have seen and had many shotguns that were once double rifles but I have to say this is the first that is without doubt a true success. Often this conversion would result in a heavy, club like shotgun but this little beauty is well balanced and comes up beautifully.

Besides handling extremely well, Miss Henry is graced with seriously beautiful wood and outstanding engraving. This butterfly is currently one of my favorite guns in the shop at present.

As most of you know I am a fan of not only appreciating but using vintage guns but I have to admit when it comes to finding 28 gauge vintage guns it is a challenge.

This appears to be a very well made look alike of a Holland & Holland Royal. For a 28 gauge sidelock that takes 2 3/4" shells I do admit that this is a super value, especially as in this case where the gun is in near new condition.

Deluxe features include chopper lump barrels, bushed firing pins, Hollands style hand detachable locks, and hinged front trigger.
