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.

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.

James Purdey 2 3/4" proofed 26"barrels set up for quail, wild pheasant, chukar, Hunns, woodcock, and grouse ~no cast and from 1901
Hammerless Sidelocks
12 gauge

What an outstanding Purdey already set up for upland over pointing dogs . This fine example dates to 1901 and is lovely condition retaining near 50% of its original case color.

Records show the barrels were reduced to 26" in the Purdey shop and choked for close game shooting. Light and well balanced this one you will never let go of once you get your hands on it.

*If the stock extension is not to your style, we can easily remove it replace it with a best English style leather covered pad. This takes three to four weeks is all and allows one to adjust the gun to their favorite length of pull in the process.

This is a stunning Scottish sidelock from 1910. Beautifully cased and in lovely condition. The stock dimensions are great for many, and the chokes are perfect for upland birds.

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

*The 14" of wood awaits a leather pad which then can carry the LOP up to 15". We can arrange for this. If a shorter LOP is needed, we can have installed a custom horn butt plate.

A classic Holland Royal with excellent walls, great stock dimensions, and is perfectly balanced at 6 lbs. 9 oz.. I appreciate the 30" barrels and if we opened up the right barrel to IC this would make an ideal upland gun. This gun was built between 1898 and 1900. We will have the exact date soon from the Holland records. If it dates to before 1899 it could be shipped direct without the need of an FFL.

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.

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.

*Great choking and a Long LOP (we can remove the wood extension and replace with a leather pad if you would like). The 2 3/4" nitro proofing is a real bonus.

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.

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.

This stunning sidelock dates from 1896 so we can ship direct. The stock is very long for some professional basketball player I am sure, but if you don't play for the NBA we can fix that easy enough by removing the stock extension and arranging for a butt plate or recoil pad made to your length of pull.

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
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.

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.

*Early Spring Sale guns have a no return policy unless we fail to mention a defect or serious problem

James Woodward 16g. in its original makers case
Hammerless Sidelocks
16 gauge
4627

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.

William Evans Sidelock 16g with 2 3/4" Nitro ~ light at 5 lbs. 14 oz. ~ cased
Hammerless Sidelocks
16 gauge

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!

Holland & Holland Dominion 16g. ~ These are rare
Hammerless Sidelocks

I have always appreciated the Holland Dominion guns as they are true sidelocks with a very rounded or radiused action. As a known 16g. "a-holic" this example does push all the right buttons for me. I have never seen another 16g Dominion and I have had over 100 Holland Dominions in the shop over the years.

*This gun dates between the wars to 1921 and comes in a proper vintage case.

*There is a cosmetic stock repair, barely visible about in the center of the stocks comb. It must have had a deep ding in the stock, so they removed a piece of wood and replaced it with new. it is very well done and hard to see. If you look carefully, you can see it in the photos.

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.
