A lot of guys like new shotguns. I’m not one of them. I prefer old doubles (and old stuff). That’s why I like this 20 gauge Dumoulin O/U caught my eye. It looks very original, and its straight grip, double triggers, and unique action give it a lot of character. I dig the three-piece forend, […]

Here’s a super rare shotgun. According to the seller, it’s a 16 gauge D.M. Lefever 9F. The pics stink (and description is just as bad), so squint and take a good look. I’ll doubt you’ll see another one. These guns were made by Daniel Myron Lefever after he left the Lefever Arms Co. I think […]

Best-quality British shotguns are famous for being “bespoke”, or made to your specifications. Within reason, if you want it, you can have it — fromĀ  weight, barrel length, and trigger pulls to custom engraving, gold inlays and even diamond tipped sights and platinum highlights. If you can pay, the maker will play. Here are a […]

If you’re looking for a decent upland gun, you should take a look at this FAIR/NEA Model 500 O/U. It appears to be in excellent, original condition, and at $1,429.99 , it’s a good deal.

Here’s a beautiful little double I know very little about. J. P. Sauer is one of Europe’s oldest gunmakers, and I’m guessing they made this side-by-side for the American market. It sure looks awesome. It’s on Gunbroker.com with a Buy Now price of $16,995 – expensive, but not crazy considering the gun’s quality, condition, and […]

Here’s an impressive double barrel shotgun from a maker I know little about. It’s a 20 gauge Zanotti and looks like it’s in nice shape. I love the color-case hardening, the engraving, and the rounded, scalloped action. It makes this SxS look 50% Italian and 50% Westley Richards. I think Zanotti is owned by Stefano […]

The Dakotas are dying…

My first trip to South Dakota was in 2000. I was stunned by the number of pheasants, grouse, and partridge I saw. In four hours of hunting we moved hundreds of wild birds – hundreds. I wonder if anyone will have a similar experience this fall. Pheasant numbers are falling across South Dakota. While complex […]

Here’s another hard Parker Repro to find. This little double barrel is an20 gauge A-1 Special with 26″ and 28″ barrels. These Repros came in two models: ones with standard engraving and ones with custom engraving patterns. Even though the photos are crappy, I think this one features standard engraving Winchester/Parker Reproduction A-1 Special 2 […]
