Get it before it’s gone (and it will be gone fast)! Winchester’s Model 21 wasn’t the most popular double ever made in America, but it was one of the most rugged.

According to its name, a “Best” gun sounds like it should be the finest shotgun a gunmaker builds. But that’s not always the case. With some makers, there’s a grade above “Bests” — “Better Bests”, I guess. Holland & Holland calls these Modele de Luxes. At James Purdey & Sons, they’re known as guns with “Extra finish“, and […]

I’ve been looking at old shotguns for twenty + years now, and the one thing I still love to see more than ever is original color-case hardening, especially when it has had decades to mellow and age. This 12 gauge sidelock by James Woodward and Sons has tons of that kind of color. It also has killer engraving and […]

What am I missing here? I’ve looked at this side-by-side a bunch of times, and I just don’t see any warts. Sure it has been reblued and the wood has been redone, but if the barrels are really tight and on the face, and if the gun is in proof, it’s a great deal. The Army […]

At 6 1/2lbs, this one is just right for all kinds of […]

A friend sent me this pic. I felt sick when I saw it. I can’t imagine how the gun’s owner feels. It’s vintage Boss & Co. SxS. After a stumble and fall, the stock’s completely broken. Fortunately, a good stockmaker can make it right again and even make the stock stronger than ever. The images below […]

If this were 2005, I would be scheming to buy this 16 gauge Lefever FE. I used to love Lefevers. Of all the American SxSs, they’re sleekest and best looking. They’re also unique designs — a taster of the fruit that fell from the brain of they’re creator, Daniel Myron Lefever. D.M. Lefever was one of […]
