Ejectors are unnecessary for most of the shooting I do. Even though I like the gratifying punfk! that spent shells make when they’re kicked from the barrels, I can’t think of a situation where this feature has actually benefited me.
I bet this is true for most shotgun shooters in the US. That’s why non-ejector British boxlocks like this 12 gauge by Frederick Williams make so much sense for us. These guns are tend to be very well made, and because they’re non ejectors, they usually cost 1/3 less than models with them
Frederick Williams was an English gunmaker with operations in Birmingham and London from 1884 to 1950. I’ve seen all sorts of guns by him, from models like this boxlock to nicely finished sidelocks like this. From what I can see, this non ejector boxlock looks like pretty original and it could be a great deal at just $1,299.
