CHARLES DALY EMPIRE GRADE OVER UNDER 12GA
CHARLES DALY EMPIRE GRADE OVER UNDER 12GA

CHARLES DALY EMPIRE GRADE OVER UNDER 12GA28″ Krupp vent rib barrels … 2 3/4″ chambers … choked Full/ExFull … weight 7 lbs 2 oz … LOP 14 3/8″ over leather covered 1″ recoil pad … drop comb 1 1/2″ … drop heel 2 1/2″ … cast off 1/4″ … double, hand checkered, triggers, with front trigger articulated … ejectors … automatic safety. The top of the rib is imprinted “Charles Daly Empire Quality.”

This is an outstanding Prussian Daly from the pre-war era. All of the metal including the trigger guard, operating lever, tang, forend hardware and the grip cap are profusely covered in acanthus leaf scroll engraving. This same scroll surrounds game scenes on the receiver of pointing dogs on the left, a covey of quail on the right and ducks on the bottom. The metal exhibits a mottled tarnished pewter and smokey grey patina which adds to the original deep relief engraving and makes it more appealing now, than decades ago when first created.

Dark, dark Turkish walnut was selected for the pistol grip stock and three piece forearm. Truly outstanding fler-de-lis checkering is generously spread over the grip surfaces. A narrow wedge of horn is inlaid at the tip of the forearm and the gold inset oval in the toeline has yet to be initialed. The barrels retail 95% of their blue, the bores are bright & excellent and the wood has seen exceptional care. This gun may be better now that when it was made. Price: $12,500

Nice looking Browning – Lebeau Courally 20 gauge sidelock…

Browning Lebeau Courally LC1 20 Gauge Sidelock Shotgun
Browning Lebeau Courally LC1 20 Gauge Sidelock Shotgun

Browning is one of the world’s most famous gunmakers – and for good reason.  John Browning changed the gun world forever, and millions of shooters have cherished creations. But even though Mr Browning designed two of the most iconic shotguns of the 20th century – the Auto 5 and the Superposed – he never developed a SxS.

Browning’s first SxS was a rugged boxlock called BSS. Introduced in 1971 and offered until , it made in Japan by Miroku. Browning added to it’s BSS line in 1983 with introduction of its highly regarded BSS sidelock. While both models were well made, Browning stopped producing them in 1987. But even though the BSS ended, Browning still offered side-by-sides through The Browning Custom Shop in Herstal, Belgium.  I don’t know a lot about the SxSs they offered but at least two of the models (LC1 & LC2) were offered until about 2006. Both were manufactured by the famous Belgian firm Lebeau-Courally, and the gun you see here is one the guns that company built. This gun looks top quality, and at $10,500, it’s a very fair deal.
