Parker’s Quality DH shotguns were the lowest-grades the company offered as custom-made doubles. In the 1930s, they cost around $148 ($175 with ejectors). At the same time, […]

Here’s an interesting Winchester M21. It’s up for auction now Gunauction.com at No Reserve and the listing ends May 10, 2015 @ 17:09:00 PT. I can’t imagine Winchester made many 16g 21s like this. Sixteens were never very popular, especially after the first World War, and by the time this gun was made 20 gauges were catching on […]

People have all sorts of opinions of Ruger’s Red Label O/Us shotguns. But while the 12 gauge & 20 gauge models have their quirks (OK, problems), the 28g is the one Ruger hit a home run with. It’s a fantastic double and one of the best birds gun America has ever made. If you’re a […]

Back when I first got into doubles, I visited a shop called New England Arms in Kittery Point, ME. At the time, New England Arms was the best gunshop in the world, and sitting in its racks were hundreds of shotguns: Purdeys, Holland & Hollands, Fox XEs, Francottes and on and on. I was impressed — […]

Here are two tough-to find American doubles coming to auction. They’re both A.H. Fox HE SxS, one in 12 gauge and one in 20 gauge. Both are coming up this weekend at Amoskeag Auctions March sale. Fox made about 300 of these HE-grade Super Fox side-by-side shotguns — just sixty in 20 gauge and the rest in […]

Just a reminder, these two nice doubles are coming up today at Poulin’s Auctions in Fairfield, ME. You can still bid on them online, and there may also be time to arrange phone bids. Of course, you can also go to the auction and bid on these doubles in person. Both side-by-side guns are in […]

Here’s another nice double coming up this Friday at Poulin’s Auctions. This one is a hard to find 12 gauge, EE-grade Lefever with a straight grip. It looks like it’s in excellent original condition – especially for a 100+ year old SxS. I’ve always thought Lefevers were the best-looking American doubles. With their sideplates, and […]

Double rifles are just plain cool. But while have a huge “wow” factor, most have three things that stink about them: Their recoil will knocks your teeth loose, their ammo costs a fortune, and their arm-aching weight makes them a PIA to carry all day. This rare boxlock Holland & Holland DR coming up in […]

Here’s one of the Kings of shotguns: A 12g Boss Sidelock Over-Under. It’s in fantastic original condition, and it’s coming up at Julia’s March 2015 sale. The Boss O/U was created in 1909, and the innovations it introduced are still in use today. If you shoot a stacked-barelled Beretta, Perazzi, or Fabbri, your gun descended […]
