J.P. Sauer & Sohn Rare Sidelock Drilling 12 GA x 12 GA x 9x57MM

J.P. Sauer & Sohn Rare Sidelock Drilling 12 GA x 12 GA x 9x57MM

I’ve always liked drillings, probably because they seem so practical.  With one gun I could kill everything from a goose to a moose — especially if I was carrying the one you see here.

This  J.P. Sauer & Sohn sidelock drilling and its in 12 GA x 12 GA x 9x57MM. That’s pretty much all the firepower I would need for anything that walks or flies in North America.

If you’re thinking the same thing, you should jump on this one. At just $1995, it looks like it could be a steal.

Here are the full details on it from the seller:

J.P. Sauer & Sohn Sidelock Drilling: 12g x 12g x 9 x 57mm, 2 3/4″ chambers, 26 3/4″ bbls, 14 1/8″ LOP, 8 LB. Action and sidelocks are mostly patina with barrel blue starting to patina. Bores are excellent! Wood shows handling & use marks but remains free of cracks. Lockup is tight with no looseness on the hinge. Price: $1,999.99

Woodcock crack me up. They’re such odd little birds, so determined in their ways, so accommodating to me and my dog, always easy to find, and always a joy to see. They’ll be back in my coverts in a few weeks and Puck and I will be happy to see them. These videos show a couple of males “peenting” out their mating call.

ITHACA SKB MODEL 280 Double Barrel Shotgun, 20 gauge, 28" barrels

ITHACA SKB MODEL 280 Double Barrel Shotgun, 20 gauge, 28″ barrels

It’s tax season – and that means it’s almost tax-rebate time. So if get a little money back from the Feds and you’ll lucky enough to be able to spend it on a gun, this nice little 20g is worth considering. It’s an Ithaca / SKB and it looks pretty much new.

The Ithaca Gun Company brought these double into the US from 1969 to 1978. All reports I’ve read on the Model 280 have said that this is one of the best side-by-sides to come out of Japan. Here’s more info on it from the seller:

If you love pheasant hunting, please watch this video. Upland game habitat is being destroyed at accelerating rate across the midwest. Since 2006, 1.3 million+ acres of once conserved land have gone under the plow. The result is far fewer bird. Pheasant numbers in states like Iowa are already collapsing. If the trend continues, the Dakotas will be next. But you don’t have to sit by and let this happen. Watch this video to learn more.

W.W. Greener Self-Acting Ejector G60 Royal side-by-side double barrel shotgun

W.W. Greener Self-Acting Ejector G60 Royal side-by-side double barrel shotgun

I have lots of dream doubles, One of them is an original W.W. Greener  G-gun. When I saw the one shown here on Griffin & Howe’s website, my heart jumped.

Greener’s Self-Acting Ejector shotguns were some of the finest side-by-sides to ever come out of the UK. This 12 gauge G-60 Royal grade was made in 1907. It has 30″ barrels with original 3″ chambers and heavy proofs. The G60 was a best-quality gun, and it was made by W.W. Greener’s finest gunmakers. In it’s day, this one cost around £63. That was a ton of money, and whoever bought this gun could have paid around the same  for a Purdey or Holland & Holland Royal.

PETER MISCHITZ AUSTRIAN BOXLOCK Double Barrel side -by-side 12GA

PETER MISCHITZ AUSTRIAN BOXLOCK Double Barrel side -by-side 12GA

Here’s a good deal on a side-by-side shotgun. It’s a 12 gauge boxlock ejector by Peter Mischitz. I’ve never heard of this maker, but from what I’ve been able to dig up it sounds like Peter Mischitz  worked in the Ferlach region of Austria around the time of World War 2.

I’ve seen Austrian/German boxlocks like this before, so I think it was probably supplied by the trade and then finished off by the maker on a as-ordered basis. A couple things make this gun special: all the color on the action, the ejectors, and, most importantly, the straight-grip stock. All together, these special features add up to make this shotgun a
