From a retail store on NYC’s Madison Avenue, and through catalogs sent out across North American, A&F sold everything from firearms to fishing lures. In 1938, the first spread of their Rifle-Shotgun catalog opened with the following […]

The one thing collector’s want most is original condition. Here’s an aweseome side-by-side Purdey shotguns with plenty of it. Just check out the color-case hardening on the action and the crispness of the wood. Great engraving, too. Since its founding in 1814, Purdey has built 30,000+ firearms.

Duck gun, target gun, pheasant gun — all in one gun. That’s a 12 gauge Browning BSS. Rugged as an F350, and with a reliable single trigger, this gun can do it all. The 28″ barrels and fair price on this one make it that much sweeter. Browning BSS 12 ga. 28″, F/M: Pistol grip […]

Here’s an interesting idea: Take a 12 gauge Browning BSS Sporter, and add a set of 30″ barrels from Browning’s regular model. The results look like they would make a great target gun, and I’m sure it would be just as nice in a duck blind or a pheasant field. Considering all the work done […]

I’m a big fan of Beretta’s original line of ASE boxlock O/U shotguns.
