Here’s a beautiful, high-quality shotgun you rarely see: It’s a 12 gauge Charles Daly O/U made in Prussia by F. W. Heym. It’s on Gunbroker.com now and the online auctions ends on Sat, 10/18/2014, @ 12:46:55 AM ET. Charles Daly was an importer, not a maker, and his company had doubles built in Europe for […]

Here’s one of the finest German O/Us I’ve ever seen. It’s a sidelock Merkel Paragon, made in 1928 and ordered for an American through A.F. Stoeger’s in New York City. I spotted this shotgun at the Orvis Game Fair Show a couple weekends ago. The gun is built on Merkel 303-style action with Double Kersten […]

The Fox Sterlingworth was one of the most popular American doubles of all time. From 1910 to about 1940, A.H. Fox and then the Savage Arms Company built around 140,000 of these great side-by-side shotguns to shooters throughout North America. Most were “Standard” or “Field” guns. A few were true Sterlingworth “Trap” guns. First offered […]

Here’s a great deal on a fantastic over-under. This gun was made in the early 2000s by Battista Rizzini for Sig Arms. It’s built on a proven action, and the single trigger is as reliable as any out there. With a straight grip, 28″ barrels, and choke tubes, it’s one gun that do it all. […]

I don’t pay a ton of attention to Spanish shotguns. Not that I have anything against them. Many Spanish doubles are well made, and some of them are bargains. I think this 16 gauge SxS by Ugartechea is both. Ugartechea has been around since 1922 — a long time for a Spanish gunmaker — and […]

J.P. Sauer and Son is one of the world’s oldest gunmakers. Founded in 1751, they’ve been building all sorts of guns for a long time now. Some of these guns have been beautiful side-by-side shotguns. The side-by-side shotgun you see here was probably made for the American market between 1910-1930. I love the scalloped action […]

This one won’t be along for long! Browning’s BSS side-by-side shotguns are rugged, reliable doubles. Most of the ones you see have pistol grips and 26″. This one is a Sporter, the model that’s a bit lighter a lot harder to find. If you’re looking for a great pheasant / duck gun, this is it. […]

Could this be the finest .410 Parker in existence? Perhaps. It’s a CHE (Quality 4) and Connecticut Shotgun just listed it on Gunsinternational.com. Parker introduced their C-grade guns in 1875. They were never very popular, and the company built fewer than 1,900 C-grades in all (1,673 were hammerless modles, or CHs). Very few of these […]

In the world of fine shotguns, a Best-quality double is just that: The very best side-by-side or over-under a company could make (or in some cases, the best one they retailed). Best guns were top-of-the-line, and top gunmakers made their best guns in special ways. This was called the “House Style”, and it was applied […]
