If Webley & Scott was the Ford of British gunmakers, the Model 700 was their F150 pickup. Rugged and dependable, the M700 was introduced in the 1950s as an entry-level shotgun and it went of to become one of the most popular side-by-sides ever made.
This 12 gauge Model 700 side-by-side on Gunbroker.com is a great example of how good a gun they could build, and of how a nice double don’t have to cost a fortune. It would be great for grouse and woodcock. Because it has been inspected, overhauled and maintained by one of the top gunsmiths in the country, you know it will be surprise free.
