Trio of David McKay Brown 16g Side by Side Game Guns
Trio of David McKay Brown 16g Side by Side Game Guns

Trio of David McKay Brown 16g Side by Side Game Guns: Consecutively numbered, true trio of 16g round action trigger plate assisted-opening side-by-side game guns by Scottish maker, David McKay Brown.  Each gun is built on the classic Scottish trigger plate action with its rounded action bar. Each gun features two triggers, automatic ejectors, auto-safeties, color case hardening and wonderfully executed small English scroll by renowned engraver Dave Tallett.  Each gun features the Maker’s name inlaid in gold on the bottom the actions.  Finally, each gun is appropriately numbered “1, 2, or 3” in gold and the word “SAFE” is also inlaid in gold.  All three guns feature 28” chopper lump barrels with 2 ¾” chambers and 2002 London proof marks.  The three guns were finished in 2003.  All three sets of barrels are bored and choked exactly the same, right at .015″ and left at .020″, with smooth concave game ribs. The guns are stocked in a lovely set of well-matched stock blanks with straight hand grips and splinter forend. There is a 15″ LOP over checkered butts, drop is 13/8” (at comb), 17/16” (at face), 2” (at heel) and the guns are cast off 1/8″. The guns each weigh a lively 6 lbs. 2 oz. and are complete in the Maker’s three-gun motor case. The guns show some signs of use, but are overall in excellent condition, tight on face, and the barrels and stocks free from any dents, bulges or cracks. Each gun is a superb example of the classic Scottish round action game gun. According to company records, this is the only trio of 16g side-by-side game guns ever made by David McKay Brown.

Winchester Model 21 12 gauge SxS shotgun
Winchester Model 21 12 gauge SxS shotgun

Winchester Model 21 12 gauge: The classic American made SxS shotgun that was ultimate in durability is the hallmark of the Winchester Model 21. This particular gun represents the earliest configuration:  Double triggers and extractors (non-ejector).  The barrels are 30″, solid rib and choked M/F but they actually measure .010 (IC) and .035 (Full), the bores are mirror bright and there is a very slight “ding” in the right tube about 10 3/4″ from the muzzle.  The semi pistol grip buttstock has a 14″ LOP to the original butt plate, 1 9/16″, DAC and 2 9/16″ DAH, no cast.  Matching splinter forend.  All finishes are 100% original.  Barrels and action retain 90-95% blue with various small amounts of surface rust evident.  The forearm iron and the trigger guard show the most use with both pieces taking on a brown patina and noticeable blue wear on the forearm extension.  The wood finishes also rate in the 90-95% range with no significant wear just the normal handling marks from 80 years or use.  The action and barrels are very tight and on face with the top lever still noticably right of center.  Serial number 2660 made in early 1935. Price: $3850
