W.J. Jeffery 2″ Game Gun Boxlock Ejector SxS Gun

W.J. Jeffery 2″ Game Gun Boxlock Ejector SxS Gun: Here we have an upland-gunners dream shotgun. It will be home in the grouse woods and the rooster fields.  Made by one of England’s best makers.  Address is 9 Golden Square, Regent Street, London. This is a true 2″ 12 gauge, the gun is in proof and stamped for 7/8oz loads. Made after 1927 and is in excellent original condition with its original makers’ case. 26″ barrels choked  IC/MOD with ejectors that work perfect  .013/.023  5lbs-4oz  14 1/8 x 1 1/2 x 2 3/16   My wife shoots the gun just as it is and I shoot it well with the leather slipon pad at about 14 3/4 pull.  Barrels are mint with perfect bright bores, 98% blue and ring like church bells! Super tight on the hinge, like it was made yesterday. Double triggers are crisp, non-auto safety. The wood stocks are highly figured and excellent and look to be original finishes. Receiver has good color case and only shows light use. Wonderful beaded breach balls with some nice English scroll. Trigger guard bow is turning to a goldish color, the inner bow is dark blue. Few really good  2″ game guns come available, here is a hi condition un-molested example. Price: $5,900
