28 ½” (723mm) Barrels choked at approx ¼ and ½ restrictions. 2 ½” (65mm) Traditional English Game Chambers and NO ONE actually needs any more. Look back through record shooting days and its all anyone used back then. Finished with a Flat Filed Finish Matt Topped slightly Tapering Rib from 3/8 to ¼” (8.5 – 6mm) at the muzzle. Single Front Sighting Bead with a small window detailed J. Graham & Co. 27 Union Street, Inverness. Pull measures to a relatively long 14 ¼” (362mm) to the Right Hand Cast Stock. Overall length comes in at 44 7/8” (1140mm) and scales trip out at 6 Lbs 9 ¼ oz (2.982 Kg). Walls are GOOD all over with a minimum of 33,000 and most in excess of 40’s.

Looking at this its pretty obvious its spent most of its time since completion tucked away in a cabinet. Chequering is still Crisp and Sharp to the touch.

The ONLY other alternative is the gun has been completely Re-Stocked WITH Matching Forend. If so then that alone would cost double this asking price and more!

Original Blueing is still in EXCELLENT Condition. Snap on Forend with Buffalo Horn Semi Schnable shaped inset tip.

Some Very Nice Grain pattern with a Strong straight Line and Good Colour Contrast. Bright Finished Action coupled with a Border Line Hand Cut Engraving surrounding patches of Scroll Work. Nothing excessive but ENOUGH. Lets simply say ‘Understated’ but all the Nicer for it in my opinion. Matching detail to the Trigger Guard and Tang aswell as the Bottom Plate and both finished Traditional Gun Blue.

Quite Frankly it’s a BIT OF A CRACKER. ANY Scotsman out there looking for a GREAT Genuine Scotish Shotgun? That goes for wherever you might be, you WILL be Seriously hard pushed to find better. Don’t let anyone from anywhere else steal away your chance. Worse still an Englishman! (Its only in my custody for now….).

As for it being a none ejector: WOW! WHO but a lucky few ACTUALLY NEED an ejector? Just think back the the last time you did NOT block the cartridges from flying out when opening the breach. Think about the times you forgot or missed and time spent scrabbling about trying to pick up a spent case or two. SODS LAW dictates they both fall into a pile of thorn, mud or even cow pat!

How many second chances lost because you watched where cases landed to pick up instead of looking for the next shot? Have that ‘Red Letter’ day sat in a pigeon hide. Get around to packing up. Then tear strips of yourself trying to pick up fired cases strewn deep into the Hawthorn back stop. Not to mension the extra hour and a half it takes to get every last one. Do you REALLY need to get fresh shells back into the gun THAT much faster? Are birds genuinely coming in that thick and fast? Maybe they do when tucked up under the quilt but I am asking / talking about REAL life.

All I will say is be honest with yourself. YES, my shotguns are mainly ejectors but not one was purchased because they were. I find them a nuisence rather than a help.



Back to the Steel SH-T:

THERE ARE more and more None Toxic Shot alternatives being produced. WITH near matching performances to traditional lead and close to, if not matching pressures. Take a look at Horton Gunmakers for their own entry into this debacle of modern day shooting. IF its so lethally deadly to shooters and game eaters how is it every old lead water main supply pipe is not getting ripped out and replaced? To my mind it’s a DISGRACE that the shooting industry did not simply ask that one simple question. NO, they saw an excuse to charge a fortune and that mainly to the detriment of the quarry. Just my opinion …..for what its worth?

Anyway, take a look for yourself:


NOW, to TRY and help speed up availability I WILL also suggest that YOU pass on details to everyone you know who shoots. Then ALL of us start to ask whoever we buy from why they are not DEMANDING cartridges made in this material? Basically VOTE with your WALLET. YES, it will take a little time for everything to filter through but patience IS a virtue. It also allows everyone who wants to keep hold of their ‘old favourite’ for the rest of their lives. Even pass it on to the next generation and hopefully beyond!

On that note I AM looking into the possibility of stocking some direct from Steve at Hortons.                                                     RING for an update and keep checking the web site.
