Holland & Holland Shotguns

Holland & Holland Shotguns

Both these side-by-sides are Holland & Holland Royals. They were made in the 1960s for Abercrombie & Fitch, and they’re both is fantastic original condition.

    These certainly look to be beautiful guns!
    I grew up in NYC in the 1950s and remember (the real) A&F fondly. They had a great gun room and did all sorts of cool things such as book safaris. And I do recall that they imported H&Hs and sold them for what would now be ludicrously low prices.
    Are the A&F H&H guns any different from the Royals bought directly from H&H? In other words, were they in any way a lesser gun? They seem to sell at a discount when they appear on the used market.

    Frank –
    Other than the rose & scroll engraving, I don’t think they’re any different from other H & H Royals from that period. That one at Barnett’s is a pretty spectacular shotgun and I would put it up against any other Royals that H & H has made.

    Their are a couple of things that are keeping those guns from selling:

    -the short bbls
    -the plain wood
    -the rose & scroll engraving

    Twelve gauges don’t seem to bring the top dollar, either. Most guys want 20gs and smaller.

    Thanks for the comment.
