If you had to buy one shotgun for everything from pheasants and grouse to sporting clays, this 12 gauge Russell Hillsdon boxlock would be an excellent choice. It’s an Anson & Deeley boxlock – one of the most dependable actions ever made. It’s also a non ejector, so you never have to worry about those things going out of time or breaking.
Overall, it looks pretty original. The chokes are a bit open, but I wouldn’t let that bother me. Unless you’re shooting late-season wild pheasants, it shouldn’t be a problem. The best part of it is the price – $2,399.99. Not a steal, but still a very good price.
