E.J. CHURCHILL PREMIER QUALITY OVER UNDER DOUBLE BARREL SHOTGUNS PAIR
E.J. CHURCHILL PREMIER QUALITY OVER UNDER DOUBLE BARREL SHOTGUNS PAIR

E.J. CHURCHILL PREMIER QUALITY OVER UNDER DOUBLE BARREL SHOTGUNS PAIR: BOTH GUNS ARE THE SAME DIMENSIONS, 28″ SOLID RIB, CHOKED .007″ AND .014″ with 2 3/4″ CHAMBERS, DOUBLE TRIGGERS, EJECTORS, FIELD FOREARM, PISTOL GRIP, CHECKERED BUTT MINT CONDITION MAKERS CASE, 7 LBS 4 0Z, DIMENSIONS: 2″ DAH,1 9/16″ DAC, 14 1/8″ LOP. Matched pair E.J. Churchill O/U The Premier Quality.  12 Bore game guns.  Gun I made in 1926, Gun II Made in 1929. Serial Nr. 4220 was made for Abercrombie & Fitch and 3173 for a Mr. Wilson in San Francisco. They were both originally pigeon guns with 32” barrels. They were matched up as a pair and re-barreled to 28” through Churchill, Atkin, Grant & Lang, and Don Masters chocked IC/M and probably restocked by the maker, work which was done for a Danish nobleman whose coat of arms are on the escutcheon.  Both guns have a full London proof.  The actions of these guns are exact copies of the Woodward O&U actions, and were made by the firm of Hills, who also made the actions for Woodward. It was said at the time that Woodward built the Over & Under guns for Bob Churchill. This may be indeed true, but it is not likely, I believe Hill did all the actioning and in addition, they both used the same outworkers. A marked difference is the ejector system, which differs from Woodward and shows the Churchill input, as Bob Churchill felt it needed improvement. In total only 15 Over & Under guns were built by Churchill before WWII, of which this pair is believed to be in the best condition of those remaining.  One of these guns is pictured in the book “The House of Churchill” by Don Masters. Price: $46,500

AYA #2 Sidelock SxS Mfg for Orvis 12 ga No Reserve

AYA #2 Sidelock SxS Mfg for Orvis 12 ga No Reserve: From what I understand, this is a number 2. The number one has higher grade wood. Chambered for up to 3-inch magnum shells. Excellent mirror shiny bores, modified and quarter chokes, 28-inch barrels retaining a conservative 96% finish. it appears that there were two sets of barrels for this side-by-side at one time, as indicated by the number 1 on the barrels. we have tried to locate them with no luck so far. The coloring on the receiver is better than 98%, the engraving is beautiful. The trigger guard is thicker on the right side, set up for right-hand shooting. The bottom of the trigger guard is engraved with three letters, the previous owner’s initials. The stock shows only a few very light handling blemishes and would rate 96%. The leather recoil pad is in excellent condition. LOP is 14 inches to the front trigger. On the forend, there is a very small crack that there will be photographs taken of. It appears to be non-structural. If not for that, it would rate 96%. everything is tight, along with lockup being rock solid. A beautiful double with Nice balance. Weighs exactly 7 pounds.

20 ga AYA No.2 SxS Sidelock Shotgun, 27" barrels
20 ga AYA No.2 SxS Sidelock Shotgun, 27″ barrels

According to the gunmaker’s website, the AYA No. 2 shotgun is “the pre-eminent “affordable” sidelock double gun, and the most famous model in the AYA line. Since its introduction in the late 1950s, tens of thousands of Nº 2’s have been sold in the United Kingdom, the United States, and everywhere that shooters value the superb balance and handling of a fine double gun.”

Fair enough, and pretty much in line with what I known about these Spanish sidelocks. The one you see here looks like a great deal. While it does have a slight issue (a crack in the stock, right behind the safety), but that should be easy to fix.

4g sidelock non-ejector SxS shotgun by Allsebrook
4g sidelock non-ejector SxS shotgun by Allsebrook

I have no idea what I would do with this beautiful shotgun. But I would sure like to own it.

One hundred and twenty-five years ago, waterfowlers along the east coast of the US and especially around the Chesapeake Bay used 4-gauge and 8-gauge shotguns like this for long-range pass shooting at ducks, geese, and swans. But in 1913, use of any shotguns bigger than 10 big bores on migratory birds was outlawed in the U.S. by the Weeks-McLean Law.

4g sidelock non-ejector SxS shotgun by Allsebrook
4g sidelock non-ejector SxS shotgun by Allsebrook

But in the UK, 8-gauges and 4-gauges remained legal, and today some folks still hunt waterfowl with them. Judging by the condition of this 4 gauge, I doubt it has seen much time on a riverbank or salt marsh.

Graham Mackinlay & Co in Glasgow, Scotland, just listed it on their site.

4g sidelock non-ejector SxS shotgun by AllsebrookNow here is something you don’t see every day. This is a double side-lock hammer-less fore bore, beautifully built by Steve Allsebrook.

4g sidelock non-ejector SxS shotgun by Allsebrook
4g sidelock non-ejector SxS shotgun by Allsebrook

The action body is engraved with bold acanthus scroll and pierces strap work. The left lock is engraved with two geese in flight and the right with three mallard ducks. The gun retains all of its hardening colour, which includes the trigger guard and top lever. The gun was beautifully engraved by Geoff Moore. The barrels are 36” long with 4” chambers and are nitro proofed. Chokes are approximately ¾ and full.

The barrels are fitted with a flat top rib, which is engraved SP Allsebrook Kirkby in Ashfield Nottingham. The gun has an Anson fore end, with beautifully made fore end tip. The gun is cased in its oak and leather case, with silver snap cap and oil bottle. The gun is truly spectacular. This gun has only fired 24 cartridges from new! Price: £39,500.00

Beretta 450 sidelock side-by-side 12 gauge Live Pigeon gun:
Beretta 450 sidelock side-by-side 12 gauge Live Pigeon gun:

Beretta 450 sidelock side-by-side 12 gauge Live Pigeon gun: An interesting gun that was made in 1954 and it is as tight and fresh today as it was then, some 64 years ago!  Barrel markings tell that the monobloc barrels were made with the best Chrome Molybdenum Compressed Steel, Superior Type and that this gun was imported by the “Wilshire Gun House” in Los Angeles, CA.  Sometime in its life this gun was “freshened” professionally and the 28″ barrels were sent to England to be fitted with five Teague Precision thin wall chokes, that as you can see by the muzzle photo, are almost invisible.  The barrels have a raised solid rib which tapers from 11.3mm (7/16″) at the breech down to 5.4mm (7/32″) at the muzzle; there is a single small brass front bead. This 450 was restocked in Italy (probably by Beretta) with a spectacular and hefty piece of walnut configured with a right hand palm swell and the dimensions are: 14 ¾” LOP over a ½” Beretta pad, 1 5/16” DAC & 1 ¾” DAH with ¼” cast for a right hand shooter. A nicely scaled beavertail forearm with an Anson release allows the gun to be guided easily with the left hand. The sidelock action has cocking indicators, concealed third fastener, single non-selectable trigger, non-automatic top tang safety and it is completely covered in hand engraved a floral and scroll pattern then chrome finished for durability.  All original metal and wood finishes and all are 99%+. Weighs 7 lbs. 14 oz. It comes in a modern Beretta DT10 luggage case with the Teague choke tubes & wrench and with 4 serial numbered turn screws (screwdrivers) fitted to this gun. Price: $12,350

In 1880 his patent #5403 became the famous falling block Fraser rifle. He was the designer of the ‘Velox’ bullet. There are very few Fraser double rifles as the original Fraser Co. did not survive after the First World War. Every Fraser and nearly every Scottish gun usually have very few apologies. Daniel Fraser died in August of 1902 at the young age of 57.  Price: $23,500

Vintage Boss & Co 20g SxS in incredible condition…

Boss & Co. 20 gauge Sidelock SxS Shotgun, #7201, 28" bbls, made around 1924
Boss & Co. 20 gauge Sidelock SxS Shotgun, #7201, 28″ bbls, made around 1924

What’s the one word that matters most to gun collectors? It’s “original”, and the more original an old firearm is, the more valuable it will be.

Boss & Co. 20 gauge Sidelock SxS Shotgun, #7201, 28″ bbls, made around 1924. Is this the holy grail of grouse guns? Perhaps. But even if you disagree, its price–$67,000–will make you say “holy sh!t”. Why is it so much?

Boss & Co. 20 gauge Sidelock SxS Shotgun, #7201, 28″ bbls, made around 1924

Condition, first. This gun looks well cared for, lightly used, and totally unmessed with. It has a lot of its original blueing and color-case hardening are still present. There’s even original finish on the lock pins The finish on the wood looks original, too, and no one has recut the checkering (thank god!).

After condition, this gun’s vintage adds to its value. It was made around 1924. Boss shotguns from the 1920’s and 1930’s tend to be this maker’s best examples. And the best guns always bring the biggest money.

This gun also has some special features. The length of its barrels (28″), the length of its stock (14″), and an original Boss single-trigger. Taken together, they make the gun appealing to modern shooters.

Boss & Co. 20 gauge Sidelock SxS Shotgun, #7201, 28″ bbls, made around 1924

Even though it’s expensive, it’s cheap compared to what brand new 20g Boss SxSs cost now. One of those will run you around $130,000+.
