12 gauge Russell Hillsdon Double Barrel Boxlock Side by Side shotgun

12 gauge Russell Hillsdon Double Barrel Boxlock Side by Side shotgun

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.

Here’s more about it from the seller:

    looks like a good quality Birmingham boxlock, yes? The weight and the chokes makes it VERY appealing for dense cover woodcock, grouse and quail. I would want something with more choke for out west.
