This is actually another of my own personal guns. It has sat in my cabinet for FAR TOO LONG.
The way my time disappears these days I just do not get a chance to even think about it, let alone get out to shoot the thing. Anyone else wants to make up a great ‘partnership’ then let’s get things put together. I’m sure you will be more than happy.
YES, the metal finish isn’t pristine but it is a relatively mature gun that HAS done some shooting. Nothing excessive and the action is certainly still in decent order.
28 ” (710mm) Fixed choke barrels at 3/4 and 1/2 and English Game chambers at 2 1/2″ (65mm).
A VERY pretty and WELL FIGURED 14 3/4″ (374mm) Walnut stock with a 3/4″ (19mm) extension. I did it to suit myself.
The action has a bright finished with a light and pleasant border engraving.
This a ‘LONDON GUN’ from one of the best known makers. Not in the same circles as the likes of Boss, Holland’s and Purdey’ s but could well have been with more Royal patronage earlier…who knows ?
All in all I always had a great deal of enjoyment when out with this gun. I certainly dropped plenty. I also missed my fair share. A CLASSIC ENGLISH made Side by Side Shotgun. It has the balance and weight only we excelled at when this was made.
Somewhere I do have the details from what is now Atkin Grant and Lang with details of who it was actually made for and when.
