12g Best-Quality Stephen Grant, 1879

12g Best-Quality Stephen Grant, 1879

The locks on a double barrel shotgun easy to overlook. Because most of their workings are out of view, it’s hard to know what’s really going on with them unless you take a gun apart. Until you do, you’ll never see just how graceful and elegant some locks can be.

These locks are from a variety of hammerguns – from a Best-quality William Powell & Son made in 1869 to a medium-grade W. & C. Scott from the mid 1880s. If you would like to learn more about gunlocks, check outthis page: The Wolverhampton Gunlock Makers.
