28” (710mm) Barrels with minimal use. Walls are minimum plus 35,000 everywhere with bores exactly how they began at .729”.
Basically about as close to brand new as you might hope to get. Fixed chokes at ¼ and either a loose Full or tight ¾. Standard English game Chambers at 2 ½” (65mm) and stamped up for 1 1/8 oz Nitro loads. Jointed with a slightly tapering Concave Rib, finished with a single brass front bead.
The Boxlock Ejector action was originally Colour Case Hardened and still retains at least 50% over the Light Hand Engraving. As things are the top lever is still off centre to the right. A feature found on most guns up to a certain amount of use. After which they ‘work in’ to the middle of the action tang. A Triple Bite Lock Up just adds top the quality of the gun and the Scallop Back yet another Quality feature.
Original and Full Length 15” (384mm) Highly Decorative English Walnut Stock featuring Classic Tear Drops to each face. Chequering is still in excellent condition. It is even present to the end of the butt stock to finish it off. Yet another High end feature which acts as an anti-slip area when mounting into the shoulder. This has a good Right Handed Cast but actually comes up VERY well for me.
Overall this guns tips scales at 6 Lbs & 7 oz (2.915 Kg) and a total length of 45” Dead (1143mm).
These guns have a GREAT following. I actually have one myself, the first gun I ever bought. The more I look at this there IS a distinct possibility this could end up in my own personal cabinet! JUST to keep the first one company. If I still had the time and opportunity for reasonable use this advert would not actually be here.
Reasonably local and VERY PRETTY Gun from one of THE BEST none London makers available.
As said, a TRULY EXCEPTIONAL CONDITION SHOTGUN. From one of the BEST ENGLISH GUN MAKERS AND who are STILL in business today. Check out the price of a new gun like this if you dare.
