Good gun alert: 12g & 20g Miroku sidelock double barrel shotguns…

Here are a couple of doubles that combine two things you rarely find in the shotgun world: high quality and low prices. These SxSs were made by Miroku, a Japanese gunmaker who has been in the firearms business since 1893. In 1973 they started producing the Browning’s Citori O/Us. They also made SxSs for the company, including the BSS boxlock and a shortlived line of sidelocks.

The guns you see here are from that run of sidelocks. They are Holland & Holland pattern doubles made with excellent quality steel. The workmanship on these guns is usually excellent, and I’m sure the fit and finish on these two will impress.

Here’s more about the guns from the seller:

Set of Miroku Sidelock SxS’s, F-grade & FE, 20 gauge & 12 gauge: Both have 28″ barrels. The 12 has ejectors and the 20 has extractors. Both guns are from the early eighties and were holdovers from when Browning cancelled their contract with Miroku for the Browning Side Lock shotgun. Very well made with true 7 pin H&H style side locks. Bores are great, and pictures tell the story. Price: $4700 for pair
