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

David McKay Brown Trio of 16g Side by Side Game Guns: Consecutively numbered, true trio of 16g round action trigger plate self-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 bar. Each gun features two triggers, auto-safeties, color case hardening and wonderfully executed small English scroll by renowned engraver Dave Tallett. Each gun features the Maker’s name inlayed in gold on the bottom the actions. Finally, each gun is appropriately numbered “1, 2, or 3” in gold and and the word “SAFE” is also inlayed in gold. All three guns feature 29” chopper lump barrels with 2 ¾” chambers and 2002 London proof marks. All three sets of barrels are bored and choked the same at: 3/8 (.015″) and 1/2 (.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 and the guns are cast off 1/8″.  The guns 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 Donald Dallas’ book, David McKay Brown, Scotland’s Gun & Rifle Maker, The definitive history authorized by David McKay Brown, (2011 Quiller Press), the three guns were finished in 2003 and are the only trio of 16g Side by Side Game Guns shown in the ledgers when the book was published.

Belgian Browning Super Light Superposed 20 Ga
Belgian Browning Super Light Superposed 20 Ga

Belgian Browning Super Light Superposed 20 Ga: Consigned to Cole’s is this very nice Belgian Browning Superposed Super Light in 20 ga with 26-inch barrels.  The shotgun bears serial # 223PW02990.  The bores are excellent.  The upper barrel is choked Mod (**) and the lower is choked IC (**-).  This shotgun weighs in at 5lbs 14 oz, a true super lightweight.  The shotgun has a long tang, straight grip.  The LOP is 14 ¾” and terminates with a Decelerator recoil pad.  The stock has various minor nicks and dings from days afield.    The gun is nice and tight and there is no looseness to be found open or when in battery. The bluing is just starting to flake from the bottom of the receiver from carry.  Some very minor loss of factory finish is observed along the tang as well.  Again, this from honest use pursuing dove and quail.  One of the best I have seen or found out here in a very, very long time.

It has magnificent case hardened scalloped coloring enhanced by intricate engraving patterns and a blue finish on the frame, boxlock, lever and breech areas. The hardwood checkered Wales type grip and forearm are distinct and show very little ware. The top lever and boxlock plate also show fine engraving patterns adding value to this gun. Lock up is tight and the trigger mechanics are crisp. Overall the bluing is very uniform on both barrels with the possible exception of some very small age spots on the right side barrel.

What’s original look like? A lesson from two VH-grade Parkers…

TOP: A 28g Parker VH BOTTOM: a 12g Parker VH

When it comes to vintage shotguns, especially vintage American shotguns, original condition matters the most. But what does “original condition” look like, especially on a couple VH-grade Parkers that are 80+ years old.

28g Parker VH SxS
28g Parker VH SxS

Take a look at these two. The first is a 28g that looks like it spent most its life in the field. The second is a 12g that looks like it was locked in a gun case since new. Both look all original to me.

William Greener 10g Percussion Side-by-Side 1853 New York Exhibition
William Greener 10g Percussion Side-by-Side 1853 New York Exhibition

William Greener 10g Percussion Side-by-Side 1853 New York Exhibition: An incredible William Greener 10g Percussion Gun made for the 1853 New York Exhibition and remains in remarkable original condition.   The gun is fitted with bar action locks with “Newcastle” style hammers and engraved in wonderful game scenes, obviously inspiring the engraving patterns of the later W.W. Greener high-grade guns. The right lock plate shows two setters pointing a brace of grouse, one looking over its shoulder (a tell-tell characteristic of original Greener guns). The left lock shows two running setters behind the hammers and a brace of snipe, one flushing one looking over its shoulder surrounded by full coverage and expertly engraved acanthus scroll, The trigger bow engraving shows a brace of pointers surrounded by scroll. Hammers and the breach block feature a dog’s head surrounded by matching scroll engraving. Furniture is also fully covered in matching scroll. The 29 3/4″ William Greener’s Laminated Steel barrels have a smooth game rib, platinum inlays with extensive engraving scroll along the full length of the rib, at the breaches, in the middle of the barrels and at the muzzles. The highly figured walnut is beautifully checkered in a point pattern on a straight hand grip and forend.  The stock has a 14″ LOP over a smooth steel butt plate with a game scene engraved 4-tiered “widow’s peak” depicting a brace of pheasant, the hen flushing, and the rooster looking over his shoulder surrounded by matching scroll. The original gold-stock shield between the hammers remains blank. Finally, the gun is housed in its original Oak & Leather case lined in a blue calf’s skin with its original trade label and host of accouterments.  Retains probably 20% original case colors in protected areas. Much of the original black remains on trigger bow and there are strong traces of original black on trigger bow tang and butt plate. The balance of metal having a soft silvered patina and the engraving remains sharp showing all its original shading and detail. The platinum letters on top rib remain all intact and remain flush. The bores remain in excellent condition and the barrels are bulge and dent free. Finally, the original case remains sound and sturdy and in equally remarkable condition as the gun. In addition to its history and provenance, this is without a doubt the oldest gun I have ever handled in such high, original condition and a testament to the illustrious reputation the elder Greener is famous for.  Price: $25,000

Connecticut Shotgun RBL 16ga. – 29”, AS NEW, “RESERVE” VINTAGE FIREARMS INC: Serial Number: RBL004829. General Specs: Connecticut Shotgun, 2015±, 16 Ga, Weight 6lbs 12oz, Chokes LM/M, LOP 14 3/4″, DAH 2 1/2″, DAC 1 1/2″.  Many of you that enjoy shooting with the side by side shotgun are familiar with Tony Galazan’s well received RBL series of round bodied guns.  The gun presented here is an as new RBL RESERVE series from Connecticut Shotgun Manufacturing Co.  The RBL is a robust gun with excellent mechanics and a very appealing look with its bone and charcoal case colored receiver, gold plated triggers, and nicely figured walnut stock.  This gun shipped with 29” barrels that retain 100% of their fine rust blue, perfect bores, choked LM/M.  The metal overall retains 99.9% of the factory finishes, with the only wear of any kind at the safety on the top tang.  The wood has a very nice figure and retains all of its original finish and perfect checkering.  The gun balances dead on the hinge pin and has a very solid feel and comes to shoulder the way a fine side x side is supposed to.  Galazan has a solid performer with his RBL.  We have priced this gun to sell quickly, as I do not believe it has ever been in the field or used much at all.  There is only the faintest hint of a primer ring on the standing breech indicating very little shooting.  The RBL Reserve is a solid investment and will do you well on the sporting clays course or in the field. Price: $3,550

Boxlock and sidelock are the pointing and flushing dogs of SxS shotguns. Each has its merits, and it’s hard to say if one’s superior to the other.

A decade ago or so, I met two Englishman at The Southern SxS: Peter Boxall, formerly a manufacturing director of Holland & Holland, and James Edmiston, former MD of the Sterling Armament Company. They had just launched a new shotgun company — Boxall & Edmiston — and their future looked bright.

Unfortunately, things didn’t work out. But as of today, their website is still up and it’s filled with tons of info about guns and gunmaking. You can find it if you go here Shotgun Anatomy tab.
