Here’s a real rare double. It’s an 8g Sneider made in the 1880s. When this SxS was built, it was one of the finest hammerless shotguns being made in America — and one of the most innovative. E & C Sneider was founded by  Charles Edward Sneider. He learned his trade in Europe and by 1859 he was […]

Here’s something unsual: A hammerless 12g James Woodward & Sons side-by-side shotgun with a second-pattern James Purdey & Sons thumbhole lever. Very odd. This Woodward looks like it’s right around the turn of the 19th century. In it’s day, the action was pretty current technology. But the mechanism that opens it — the Purdey thumbhole lever […]

I have no idea who TAK who was (Theo A. Koch?), but I do know he had an awesome mom. How? Because she bought him the two shotguns you see here. Both of these OUs were built in Germany and then stocked by Frederick Surkamer, a Chicago-area gunsmith who built custom rifles, worked for Von […]

I love big, German over unders, and I wanted this one the moment I saw it. It’s a beast, made by Abesser & Merkel with 32″ barrels (choked full X even fuller), 2 3/4″ chambers, and 8lbs 10ozs of recoil-sucking-up weight. It locks up with Purdey-style underbolts under the bbls and double Kerstens at the top of the […]

I’ve always liked B. Rizzinis. With their low-profile, Boss/Woodward inspired design and proven trigger-plate style actions, they’re innovative shotguns, right up there with Beretta BLs and 686s-series. If you’re looking for a are nice, all around O/Us, with a bit more style, class, and polish, the B. Rizzinis are hard to beat. But even though I just said […]

If fine shotguns are addicting, this Webley & Scott Model 700 is their gateway drug. Well made, nice handling, and affordable, these Birmingham-built side-by-sides are the perfect way to get hooked on British doubles. Webley & Scott built the M700 on an Anson & Deeley-style action, one of the most reliable  shotgun designs ever created, […]

There are two doubles I always recommend as all around “great guns”. The first is a Beretta 686 Onyx. The other is the O/U you see here. The Aurora over under was made in Italy by B. Rizzini, and Sig Arms imported them for a while, first for L.L. Bean and then for themselves (or […]
