But it does have a quirk. Compare its forend to the forend on other Boss SxSs (like this one) […]

“Buy the gun, not the name” – that’s a bit of wisdom firearm collectors toss around all the time. It’s good advice, too. There are lots of big-name shotguns out there in lousy condition. When you’re buying, it’s easy to be blinded by  a  famous name — like James Purdey & Sons —  and overlook […]

Vintage, Field-grade doubles are not the kind of guns you usually come across today in minty, all original condition. As you can imagine, most of the guns were bought to be used, and they saw many, many days in hard hunting. That’s what makes this 12g L.C. Smith Field so unique. Made in 1936 – […]

Sixteen gauge A.H. Fox Sterlingworth double barrel shotguns are not hard to find — unless you’re looking for one with 30″ barrels AND ejectors.  I’m not sure how many Fox made in this configuration, but the number has to be darn small. That makes this one coming up to auction at the end of June […]

The James D. Julia Auction Company started their spring 2009 firearms auction yesterday, 3/16. Even though the economy stinks, there’s still money out there for good double barrel shotguns. Several nice Parkers brought big money, although many of them missed their pre-sale estimates. This nice 20g A-1 Special with 32″ bbls hammered down at $95,000 […]
