Here they are, my five favorite doubles that popped up last week on Gunsinternational.com…
-W & C Scott Kinmount in 20 Gauge : a lot of gun for the money. Kinmounts were made between 1980-1985. This 20 gauge has 2 ¾” chambers, a straight grip, ejectors, modern dimensions (14″ LOP, 2 1/8″ DAH, 1 1/2″ DAC) and it’s cased. Fairly priced, but try and beat them down a bit (why not?)
–James Purdey 450 x 3 1/4″ BPE Cased in vintage oak and leather: Excellent bore and gun in very nice original condition. Ina vintage oak and leather case with label. This may be a step or two down from their Best quality. Regardless, it’s still classy and very cool. Probably 140+ years old.
-L C Smith Hammergun : a nice looking 12g F-grade with 28” fluid steel bbls and lots of original color. Two words: classic & American.
–H. Barella Cape Gun 16 gauge/8x57JR combo: Have you ever been walking home from your deer stand and flushed a grouse? This cape gun is just what you need. Perfect if you want to stand out at deer camp, too.
–Boss & Co., side-by-side, 12g : A real nice double, made in the late ‘20s. 29” bbls, 6lb 8 oz , decent dimensions (2 1/4 X 1 3/8 X 14 1/8), in its original case. Expensive, but quality like this is worth it. Go ahead, blow the kids’s college fund.
