Here’s a great way to get into vintage doubles. This side-by-side is an “A” Grade A.H. Fox. It’s in the greatest gauge — 16 — and it has a hard-to-find round-knob grip. It even comes with what appears to be its original hang tag. It’s on Gunbroker.com now and the listing ends tomorrow, 12/6/2017, @ 2:32 PM. […]

  Parker Quality G 12GA–LIFTER, FACTORY 98% FINISHES ONE OF THE BEST REMAINING, NICE: Year 1882, 12 Gauge, 7lbs 15oz, SxS, #22993. When some Parker collectors hear of a Grade 2 lifter gun in 12ga. they yawn casually, as most you will ever see are “grey guns”, with most of their finish gone, cut stocks, butt […]

I say “Browning”, you say “over & under”. But just because this company has made some of the most famous OUs of all time doesn’t mean they haven’t made some other great doubles. From 1971 to 1987, Browning also “made” side-by-sides, including the sidelock shotgun you see here. I say “made” because these guns were actually built […]

I’m a fanatic for old shotguns. That being said, I do realize modern SxSs and OUs have benefits: Perfected designs, suitability with modern ammo, easier to fix, etc. Of the modern stuff out there, I’ve always liked Ithaca/SKB side by sides. SKB is another of Japan’s famous gunmakers and Ithaca imported SxSs and OUs made by them from […]

I’ve had an on-and-off love affair with Parkers. Over the last 20 years or so I’ve owned–and sold off–a bunch of them. But over that time, I’ve never seen one like this. This 16 gauge, DH-grade’s combination of damascus-steel barrels, 0-size frame, modern stock dimensions and incredible wood make it very unusual. Parker DH 16 Gauge […]
