J P Clabrough impressive 8 gauge Side-by-Side sidelock hammer double:

J P Clabrough impressive 8 gauge Side-by-Side sidelock hammer double: SxS hammer shotgun, circa 1887.  Until acquiring this gun I couldn’t use the words massive and beautiful in the same sentence when describing a shotgun!  The 36” barrels are Damascus steel with the pattern showing nicely, slightly browning with flawless/bright bores and chambers.  The barrels are fitted to a finely, fully engraved frame featuring with lots of scroll and game scene vignettes of pheasants on the left side and English black grouse on the right side with good traces of original colors present.  The engraved English black grouse were something of a “signature” engraving pattern on Clabrough mid and higher grade guns.  The double triggers are housed by a large trigger guard and the bottom tang that is fitted all the way to the engraved metal pistol grip cap.  The stock has a 14” LOP to the center of the original horn buttplate, 2” DAC and 3” DAH with neutral cast.  The stock and cross pin forearm have all of their original finishes with a fair amount of handling marks and yet no cracks or chips.  This is a really spectacular example of a Clabrough gun and an even more incredible example of an early 8 gauge, graded hammer gun.  By the “way” it weighs 13 lbs. 15 oz. SN:  16821  Price: $5,150

Wow – what a gun: 16 gauge Barella needlefire, 1865 …

I don’t know much about this maker, and I think the ignition system is based on an updated version of Dreyse’s needlefire patent. But I am 100% certain that it’s a beautiful gun.

Ornate Deep Relief Engraved Gold Inlaid Heinrich Barella of Magdenburg, Double Barrel 16 Gauge Shotgun with Elaborate Raised Relief Carved Stock, made approx. 1865

More info on it from the Johann Springer website:

Barella was reported to have had clients such as the King of Italy and Romania as well as the Tsar of Russia.

Ornate Deep Relief Engraved Gold Inlaid Heinrich Barella of Magdenburg, Double Barrel 16 Gauge Shotgun with Elaborate Raised Relief Carved Stock, made approx. 1865

Beautiful example of a needle fire shotgun made by Heinrich Barella of Magdenburg, Germany. Barella was born in Soest, Germany, in 1819 and at the approximate age of 24, attained the level of Master Gunsmith. In 1844, he founded his firm H. Barella Gewehrfabrik in Magdeburg, Germany. In the mid 1860s he was a gunmaker to the Prussian Royal Court and in 1871, he was the gunmaker to the Royal Court in Berlin. Barella died in 1893.

This shotgun features Damascus barrels. The breech end of the rib is gold inlaid “H. BARELLA KÖNIGL. PREUSSISCHER & KAISERL. RUSSISCHER HOFBÜCHSENM: BERLIN” flanked by relief oak leaf engraving.

The breech end of the barrels are relief engraved with a broad scroll and oak leaf design. There are two gold wire inlaid bands on the muzzles and one on the breech end as well as a decorative design on each end. The bottom of each barrel under the forearm are marked with the serial number 1539. The receiver and under break lever are relief engraved with a floral scroll design and the rear portion of the forearm, has a scene of a hunting dog flushing a game bird on the left side and two deer on the right side. There are wide gold inlaid bands on the front and rear of the receiver and on the rear of the forearm. Double triggers with the forward trigger being a set trigger and a decorative horn grip extension. The forward wood portion of the forearm is carved with a floral vine design, as are the sides of the stock wrist and right side of the stock. The bottom of the forearm has a round silver initial plate which is engraved with a crown and inscribed “AK”. With the Baron crown, one can only suspect this shotgun was made for someone of royalty. The left side of the stock features a cheekpiece and a beautifully carved wooden scene of two deer. The iron buttplate is engraved with a floral vine design, there is a compartment for two shells, and the door is engraved with a buck in a field scene. The barrels have 2 1/2 inch chambers.

Springer Spaniel + Cocker Spaniel = ….?

A Sprocker Spaniel, from SprockerSpaniel.co.uk
A Sprocker Spaniel, from SprockerSpaniel.co.uk

Here’s a dog I haven’t heard of before: The Sprocker. It’s a cross between a Springer Spaniel and a Cocker Spaniel.

According to SprockerSpaniel.co.uk, Sprockers have been around for over 2o years, and there are between 5,000 – 10,000 of them in the UK, making one of the most popular spaniel breeds there.

Other than color variations, I’m not sure what advantages a Sprocker offers, and I don’t understand what niche they fill in the gundog world. Is it a leggy, rangier Cocker? A stockier, close-hunting Springer? If you have one, please let me know. I would love to learn more.

8 Bore R.B. Rhodda double rifle
8 Bore R.B. Rhodda double rifle

8 Bore R.B. Rodda Double Rifle, owned by gun writer Jack Lott: 22″ barrels have very very good bores with strong rifling and mike at .875 which indicates a rare brass case rifle, actually a 7 Bore. The rifle has non-rebounding locks that work excellently and it locks up tight on the face. This was a working rifle and has sparse engraving and shows wear as there is very little finish left, however mechanically it is excellent! The stock is solid and the wood to metal fit is very good with no proud metal. The pull is about 14 1/2″ over a black recoil pad. The steel barrels were made by Adams and Tate and have a dolls head extension. It has a lever forend with a metal grip cap and vacant metal shield let into the stock. Jack Lott shot the rifle with 10 to 12 drams of black powder and either a 1000 grain round ball or a 1250 grain conical. He commented on how well it shot with the 12 dram load. The file cut rib has one fixed rear sight. It comes with a modern round ball mold, brass cases and wads. Here is a solid 8 Bore in the rare 22″ barrel length with steel barrels with an interesting provenance with Jack Lott, featured in the Guns and Ammo publication “Big Bore Rifles” authored by Jack Lott. Price: $28,500.00

Drive: When you’re born to hunt birds…

Drive is an odd instinct. Some dogs have it. Others don’t. And until you see what a dog with drive acts like, it’s hard to imagine just how bird-obsessed a pointer, setter, or spaniel, lab, or other true hunter can be. Check out this video to see just how wired this spaniel is for one thing: Birds.

Doing it right with a springer spaniel from Silverthorn Gundogs….

I always enjoy watching a great bird dog do its thing. In this video, you can see Silverthorn’s Emma, a Springer Spaniel out of Silverthorn Gundogs in northwestern, PA, do just that. I love her energy & enthusiasm. She’s the perfect partnership, and you can see how fun she’s having in the field.
