Raise your hands if you think this Immanuel Meffert shotgun is an Anson & Deeley boxlock. That’s what I thought at first. But as I looked closer, a few things kept telling me I was wrong: the single pin in the side of the action, the wide top-strap under the toplever, the cocked indicators on […]

A couples friends of mine are crazy about muzzleloading Purdeys. Take a look at this one and you’ll see why. James Purdey built 809 double-barrel percussion rifles.  The first was sold in 1827 and the last — 32-bore back action for eccentric Scottish collector Charles Gordon — left Purdey’s in 1896. According to the The Early Purdeys, […]

Beretta’s SO-series over-and-unders are one of the world’s greatest doubles. The one you see here looks like it’s in great shape – and it has double triggers. Introduced around 1933, Beretta’s sidelock over-unders were the Italian maker’s response to Browning’s then new Superposeds. Beretta’s in-house firearms designer Tullio Marengoni considered Browning’s O/U “..very high, heavy and […]

When it comes to grouse and woodcock guns, a lot of hunters pass over twelve gauges. That’s a shame. Twelve gauge shotguns are the most versatile doubles out there. Size wise, I find twelve gauges feel better in my hands twenties. When their weight is right, I think they’re perfect for all kinds of upland […]

Beretta’s BL grade OUs are great shotguns. Introduced in the ’60s, these doubles were imported into the US by the Garcia Corp through the ’70s. These guns were basically stripped-downed version of the company’s ASE line of OUs. The ASE were boxlock versions of the Beretta SO-series sidelock shotguns. The BLs feature a shallow, low profile […]

About twenty-five years ago, the beginning of the double-gun renaissance began. The Double Gun Journal was a big part of this resurgence. So were Donald Dallas’s books on the famous London gunmakers. Dallas published his first book  — Boss & Co, Builders of Best Guns Only — in 1995.  Books about James Purdey & Sons and Holland […]

Here’s a great way to start an affair with nice American doubles. With 28″ barrels and what looks like an all-original finish, this Fox Sterlingworth is nice. And the price  –$1095 — makes is even nicer. From 1910 to about 1940, A.H. Fox and then the Savage Arms Company built around 140,000 Sterlingworths. Most were 12 gauges, […]
