Rare Lightweight 12 ga Purdey Game Gun with 25″ bbls:

Rare Lightweight 12 ga Purdey Game Gun with 25″ bbls: You are looking at a rare and an unusual Purdey gun. Unlike this gun, most if not all “funeral” or “black” Purdey guns were sent out with the expectation that they will return to London to be finished per buyer’s taste. This gun was ordered in blued steel and gold lettering with minimal engraving. Copy of the Purdey dimension book entry for the gun and the actioner’s work order from Peter Nelson can be found in the pictures. Orginally a 2 1/2″ gun, the chambers were lengthened to 2 3/4″ (3 1/4 tons) and the gun re-proofed in London in 1986. Built on the Beesly action, this high condition self-opener ejector game gun sports 25″ barrels and an automatic safety. The gun was manufactured in 1964 and comes in its original Purdey lightweight leather motor case. Finished by Alan Dudley, stocked by Anthony Rule, barrels by Jack Aldous, and actioned by Peter Nelson. Price: $27,000*
