J & W Tolley 4 Bore – 1895, 95% CASE COLOR
J & W Tolley 4 Bore – 1895, 95% CASE COLOR

J & W Tolley 4 Bore – 1895, 95% CASE COLOR: 15lbs 12oz, Serial Number: 7804. J. & W. Tolley was an English gunmaker of some notoriety, mostly noted for large bore waterfowlers.  From about 1894 through 1903 they occupied a London address and that was when this gun was made.  Tolley guns became known for their quality in 1894 with their appointment as gunmakers to the King of Portugal and to the Persian Royal family.  These are not casual appointments, and the quality can be seen in their guns from the London address after 1894.  This amazing find is a FULLY FACTORY ORIGINAL, HIGH CONDITION, UNTOUCHED single barrel hammer gun with a Jones Underlever locking system produced by J & W Tolley 126 years ago.  The serial number (7804) and proof marks on the bottom of the barrel indicates a manufacture date of 1895.  The action retains 85% factory case color with some fading, nice border engraving with screws and breech area nicely but sparsely decorated.  The underlever and full tang trigger guard retain 95% vivid factory case colors.  The Jones underlever is known for its robust lock-up, and the barrels are tight on the breech face as a new gun.  The 38” fluid steel barrel has excellent mirror bore, 4” chamber, .940 bore diameter with extra full choke 52 thou restriction, and a minimum barrel wall thickness of .106”!  Barrel has normal and numerous light handling marks and 85% factory blue.  The mechanics are excellent, with a crisp trigger, strong springs, and perfect screws.  The fit of wood to metal is impeccable, and the checkering shows almost no wear.  The stock measurements are     14 9/16” LOP with a drop at heel of 2 ¾”.  WE HAVE PRESENTED THIS GUN IN “AS FOUND CONDITION” WITHOUT CLEANING OR ALTERING THE GUN.  We generally prescribe to cleaning up checkering and replacing decrepit butt pads before showing the gun, but some collectors prefer to choose what cleaning should be done.  We did function check the entire gun and it is awesome.  If you want service done to the gun we can arrange that with our gunsmith department and get the work done without delay.  The gun is a BEAST when brought to shoulder…IT IS A BEHEMOTH!  Weighing 15 3/4lbs. and balanced 2½” in front of the hinge pin, this is a gun that could be fired from the shoulder but was likely rested in the punt boat on a sack of grain.  There is a rear flip-up sight used to line up on the flock of waterfowl this gun was made to decimate, one shot at a time.  These are rare guns in 4 bore and to find a waterfowler in this high factory original condition is a treasure found.Price: $9,950.00
