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 […]

There are three things I look for when buying a double: original condition, shootable dimensions, and a fair price. This SxS by Joseph Lang & Sons has the first two. As far as price, it’s going to sell for exactly what people think it’s worth. Other than the Decelerator pad, this shotgun looks like it […]

When it comes to side-by-sides, Beretta isn’t the first gunmaker that comes to mind for most American shooter. Most of think O/Us. But Beretta has been making SxSs longer than over-unders, and in 2003 they their newest model the 471 Silver Hawk. The Silver Hawk came out right when the vintage shotgun craze was at […]
