Perazzi DC-12 SxS Case Colored Double Barrel Shotgun

Perazzi DC-12 SxS Case Colored Double Barrel Shotgun

Target shooting isn’t my thing, and I’ve never set foot on a box-bird field. But guys I know who are nuts about clays and crack shots on live pigeons swear to me that this Perazzi is the best SxS you can buy for either game.

Even though Perazzi built its fame on OUs, the company made doubles with barrels both ways back when it started out. I’ve been told Perazzi DHO sidelock side-by-sides were made in collaboration with Fabbri, back when Perazzi/Fabbri were starting out as gunmakers and figuring out which path to follow. From what I can see, the DHO SxS is a pretty standard, H&H pattern sidelock. There doesn’t appear to be anything new or innovative going on with it.

Perazzi DC-12 SxS Case Colored Double Barrel Shotgun

Perazzi DC-12 SxS Case Colored Double Barrel Shotgun

That’s not the case with this Perazzi DC-12. This gun was built to shake off thousands and thousands heavy loads. To do that, it uses several unique features including a removable trigger group and dual, parallel barrel lugs. All in, these features have created a stout shotgun that ideal for serious target shooters.

LNIC Custom ordered, Perazzi DC-12 SxS Case Colored: Absolutely beautiful LNIC Custom ordered “Color Case Hardened” Perazzi DC 12 SxS shotgun, 30” IC/M. Here’s one of the recent (2013) SxS guns built by Perazzi as a re-introduction of their legendary competition SxS guns from the 70s. The DC 12 was a limited run as they are now only producing the DC-20 (see Shooting Sportsman article Jan-Feb 2016).

Perazzi DC-12 SxS Case Colored Double Barrel Shotgun

Perazzi DC-12 SxS Case Colored Double Barrel Shotgun

This gun has all of the positive attributes of the competition proven MX-8 platform: Removable trigger group, replacement firing pins, & main springs. This is the only SxS gun produced today with these features.

The gun is choked for Clays (IC/M) and has the following upgrades (at extra expense): SC 2 wood, gold selective trigger group, German Bone case colors. I bought it along with a 28” gun, took both to the range, shot one round of 5-Stand through each and opted for the shorter gun. Thus, this gun has exactly 25 rounds through it! It is LNIC. Better yet, I contacted Perazzi USA who informed me that the new owner will be protected under the factory warranty – so bid with confidence. Complete with owner’s manuals, extra springs and pins kit, stock wrench, Lube and factory brown ABS case with embossed “Perazzi” logo.

Fox CE Grade, from 1937-39 Savage-era catalog

Fox CE Grade, from 1937-39 Savage-era catalog

If you’re a Fox fan, these two SxSs are going to make you drool. One’s a 16g and the other’s a 12g. Both look like CEs, and they’re coming to auction this Friday, May 20, @ Cottone Auctions.

Fox considered the CE to be a high-grade gun. In 1931, retailers asked $100 for it — more than twice the price of Sterlingworth with ejectors and a little less than a Parker GHE. The same year, a sidelock W. & C. Scott Premier cost $1,000.

Today, CE grade Foxes like the ones you see here are very collectible — especially the 16g. Fox made very few of them, and to see two with this kind of original condition is a treat.

Fox Sterlingworth Trap SxS Shotgun, 32" barrels

Fox Sterlingworth Trap SxS Shotgun, 32″ barrels

Like a lot of guys, my first real SxS was a Fox Sterlingworth. My gun was a 12g with 30″ barrels, and even though it didn’t fit me, I killed a lot of wild pheasants with it.

Introduced in 1910 and built until around 1940, the Sterlingworth was Fox’s best selling shotgun. The vast majority were 12 gauges with 28″ or 30″ barrels. But the company also offered 12g Sterlingworths with 26″ and 32″ barrels.

From the beginning, Fox associated a “style” with the barrel lengths of its Sterlingworths: 26″ guns were Brush styles, 28″ guns were Field styles, 30″ guns were Standard styles, and 32″ guns were Trap styles.

That means the guns you see here is a true Trap-style Sterlingworth, and with it’s 32″ barrels, it would a great gun for sporting clays or the field.

Alfonso XIII of Spain, pigeon shooter & owner of many Purdeys

Alfonso XIII of Spain, pigeon shooter & owner of many Purdeys

Provenance is tricky, especially when it comes to old guns. Some provenances can boost a shotgun’s value many times over, while other barely register at all with buyers.

Fo example: Would you pay $60,000 more for a shotgun made for King Alfonso XIII.

King who?

Yeah – that’s the problem. King Alfonso XIII was Spain’s monarch from 1886-1931. While he was a big deal in his day, I don’t know anyone who cares about him now. So it’s hard to say if a gun connected to him is worth a $60,000 premium.

That’s just what’s going on with the James Purdey & Sons 12g hammergun you see here. This side-by-side came up for sale in Christie’s, December 2014 sale:

The hammer price plus premium: $35,370. It looks to me like whoever has the gun now connected it to King Alfonso before or after he bought it. It certainly is a spectacular shotgun, and it appears to be in excellent condition. Regardless, though, the big question is: Is its connection to a King worth sixty large?

More info from the seller:
“Purdey Hammer gun sn. 19395 came from a collection of Spanish Royal Firearms, from the household of King Alfonso XIII of Spain. The makers have confirmed that this hammergun was completed in April 1909 for the King of Spain, Alfonso XIII. The records are specific that Barre was the engraver. The gun is covered in finely chiseled low relief with foliate scrollwork illustrating monsters and masks upon a blackened background. Included is a gold inlaid escutcheon with the Spanish Royal Coat of Arms.

JAMES PURDEY & SONS BEST BARRE ENGRAVE SIDELOCK SXS HAMMER SHOTGUN 12 GAUGE KING ALFONSO OF SPAIN

It is believed that the King used this gun in winning the Tiro-Pichon De Madrid in May 1921. Our provenance includes a picture of the King aside the trophy given for his win and holding what appears to be this gun. Purdey awarded the winner of the Tiro-Pichon De Madrid a prize gun that was to duplicate this piece, however Barre did not engrave the later gun as he was dead by 1921.”
