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.

Westley Richards 14-bore Flintlock Shotgun with extra set of .54 cal. hollow-point bullet barrels, ca.1841: Westley  Richards, Birmingham. Magnificent, penultimate, 14-bore flintlock double-barreled sporting gun, #1556, the very last flintlock gun made by the firm for a gentleman in 1841, complete with a superb set of .54 cal. bullet-rifle barrels made for the gun just over 20 years ago by my dear friend and consummate gun maker, Michael Ehinger, of  Stedman North Carolina.  Weight: 7 Lbs. 2 oz. with original shotgun barrels. Stock dimensions: 13 7/8”x 1 ¼”x 2”x 3/16” cast-off.  Superb 30” finest quality Damascus barrels with absolutely brilliant, pristine, bores (.702”/.702”) and breeches, and retaining most of the original finish except for some loss where the shooter’s hand would grip the forend when firing the gun. The 30” modern steel rifle barrels remain in mint condition with brilliant bores and breeches and retain all of their original brown, faux-Damascus, finish. The case-hardened stepped-in breeches have either stainless steel or Inconel touch-hole liners. Barrel sights consist of a fixed rear sight to 75 yds. and a single flip-up sight out to 150 yds. In addition, there are two hollow-point bullet molds that accompany the rifle, one for everyday use and another brass mold as finely crafted as any of the period (see photos). The exquisite locks, with “John Manton” deep-V pans complete with platinum divider bars in the bottom, self-priming frizzens, and extremely stout “solid cocks”, are of absolutely peerless quality demonstrated in the crisp snap upon cocking up along with that “oily” feel to the action so highly praised by the great Col. Peter Hawker who, in his book, “Instructions To Young Sportsmen”, referred so respectfully to Westley Richards of Birmingham as, “Joe Manton the second”.  Locks are pristine and, like the false breech, retain most of the original hardening color without a speck of corrosion.
Beautifully engraved mounts retain much of the brilliant black finish with some flaking to the butt plate and moderate corrosion at the heel of the butt. The stock retains a fair amount of the original varnish with the dark, oil-stained, areas missing finish where the hands of the shooter rubbed during normal use. There is also some unavoidable damage to the leather cheek pad. The shotgun comes cased in an original Westley Richards case with original trade label and many period accessories along with spare ramrod and spare frizzens.  A few later, but helpful in the field, accessories might also be found in the case as well. Unfortunately, there is no provision in the original casing for the additional rifle barrels. Overall an absolutely magnificent, one-of-a-kind, set for either the collector or the dedicated flintlock hunter. The ultimate Christmas gift for that special person in your life! Price: $59,500

Extremely Rare Sir Joseph Whitworth .451 Percussion Double Rifle With Hexagonal Bore
Extremely Rare Sir Joseph Whitworth .451 Percussion Double Rifle With Hexagonal Bore

Extremely Rare Sir Joseph Whitworth .451 Percussion Double Rifle With Hexagonal Bore, and Case: Extremely Rare Sir Joseph Whitworth Percussion Double Rifle with Hexagonal .451 Bores with case, and powder flask.  Very few were produced, and it is said that no more than 50 were made in total.  Possibly fewer. Whitworth’s single-shot rifles were prized by Confederate sharpshooters during the Civil War and were also used extensively in target shooting in the apex of the percussion rifle era. Parker Hale continues to market reproductions as to the Target rifle variants with the correct Hexagonal rifling. (I took a very large bull elk, quite cleanly, with one of these reproductions, before I owned this double!)  Far fewer Sporting rifles were produced by Whitworth, and, again, fewer still of the double rifle variety. These double’s barrels were produced from a single piece of bar stock which Whitworth bored. A very unusual method of production, but extremely effective when done right, and Whitworth was one of England’s most renowned machinists.  Hex bullets can be used of course, or, more commonly, people use .451 +/- conical bullets that simply bump up to hex shape upon firing.  These are very effective hunting rifles as the bullets have great sectional density when weighing 485-500 grains or so. This provides almost the perfect combination of bullet diameter and penetration.   Bullet molds are quite common in this configuration. Most users recommend a powder charge of approximately 90-95 grains of FF Black powder.  This example shows honest use, but was maintained properly, and is in excellent condition overall, as is it’s original case. Mechanically and functionally excellent, and very good as to appearance is the way I would grade this example.  Folding sights in 100-yard increments to 500 yards. Test targets are included showing how well this rifle’s barrels are regulated at both 50 and 100 yards, and the powder charge and bullet type used to achieve these tight groups. Bores are excellent, and show little if any frosting whatsoever.  Stock shows numerous handling marks and scratches, but no cracks or splits. Stock has pistol grip cap of steel, and a silver stock oval which is not yet engraved.  Rifle’s Bluing is browning on the tang, the locks and receiver, and is quite good on the buttplate. Barrels also quite good as to blue. Some Scattered scratches and handling marks in the barrel bluing. Locks and triggers work perfectly. Ramrod correct for rifle, and there is a period powder flask in the case. Weighs 9 pounds 8 ounces, and balances well.  The pictures tell the story, but feel free to contact me with questions. Try to find another! 🙂 For those with genuine interest, more photos can be supplied. A truly special rifle for the percussion enthusiast. Thanks for looking! Price: $19,999

What do you think of these insane double rifles?

Over the last few months, William Larkin Moore & Sons has posted some of the finest vintage double rifles I’ve ever seen. There’s quite a range of them, including these two droplock Westley Richards with a ton of killer original condition:

.577 Nitro Express WESTLEY RICHARDS Deluxe Droplock Ejector, Mfg 1903,
.577 Nitro Express WESTLEY RICHARDS Deluxe Droplock Ejector, Mfg 1903,

From the massive, like this side-by-side .577 Nitro Express WESTLEY RICHARDS Deluxe Droplock Ejector, Mfg 1903. An elephant stomper like this can generate 7,010 Ft-lbf of punch with a 750-gr bullet — KABoom! Compare that to a .30-06, which generates 2,981Ft-lbf of smack with a 220-gr bullet.

WESTLEY RICHARDS Deluxe Droplock Express .303 Savage Cased in Orig O&L case, Mfg 1907 Near new all original condition
WESTLEY RICHARDS Deluxe Droplock Express .303 Savage Cased in Orig O&L case, Mfg 1907 Near new all original condition

To the mid-size, like this WESTLEY RICHARDS Deluxe Droplock Express .303 Savage Cased in Orig O&L case, Mfg 1907 Near new all original condition. With it’s lightweight, his double rifle would be perfect for deer hunting here in the States. And since it’s not a dangerous-game gun, the single trigger is just fine.

JOHN DICKSON & SON Round Body Sidelever Express .577 3" BPE Cased
JOHN DICKSON & SON Round Body Sidelever Express .577 3″ BPE Cased

The collection WLM is selling also contains stuff like super rare SxS rifle: JOHN DICKSON & SON Round Body Sidelever Express .577 3″ BPE Cased. To date, Dickson has made around 2,000 Round Action guns. Of these, fifteen have been double rifles and two have been .577s. And the one you see here is in fantastic condition. Special? You bet.

W.W. GREENER O/U Hammer Express 12-bore rifle Cased in O&L Mfg 1886 Very rare and very nice condition
W.W. GREENER O/U Hammer Express 12-bore rifle Cased in O&L Mfg 1886 Very rare and very nice condition

And this ‘friggin oddball OU. It’s a WW GREENER O/U Hammer Express 12bore rifle Cased in O&L Mfg 1886 Very rare and very nice condition. This rifle is just weird, and I can’t imagine why it was ever built. No one I know has seen another like it, and I bet it’s a one-off. On top of that, it looks new. So whoever ordered in back in 1886 never bothered to hunt with it. Maybe once they got it they realized how odd it was and decided they would take something else to Africa.

Superb Antique 12ga Parker DH in closet queen original condition! for sale

Superb Antique 12ga Parker DH in closet queen original condition: Rarely do we find early damascus guns in incredible condition. Most of the high condition Parkers are in the 175k SN range and newer. When you study a gun like this DH, you can see why Parker sold 240k guns. They made really beautiful firearms.

This particular gun is in the 82k SN range and made on a 1-1/2 frame. It has 28″ Damascus barrels with brilliant pattern, virtually all of which remains in pristine condition. The bores are brilliant and shiny. Made with splinter forend, double triggers, and extractors. The action is engraved in typical early DH pattern and retains more than 80% bold original case color. Stocks retain nearly all of their original finish. The quality of the wood on this gun cannot be overstated. The original skeleton buttplate retains more than 1/2 of the original blued finish as does the trigger guard.

Technical details: Right barrel- .731 with .025 Choke, Left Barrel .731 with .037 choke. Weight: 7lbs 5oz. 2-5/8″ chambers. LOP- 14″ to original skeleton BP. DAC 1-7/8″. DAH 3-1/8″

If you have ever wanted a truly high original condition early Damascus Parker, look no further. It would take a lifetime of searching to improve on the overall quality and condition of this fine early Parker. Price: $8395

Fox A Grade 20 Gauge – FIGURED STRAIGHT STOCK, NICE!, vintage firearms inc
Fox A Grade 20 Gauge – FIGURED STRAIGHT STOCK, NICE!, vintage firearms inc

Fox A Grade 20 Gauge – FIGURED STRAIGHT STOCK, NICE!, vintage firearms inc: General Specs: Fox, Year 1938, 20 Gauge, 5lb 14oz, Chokes M/F, LOP 14 1/4″, DAH 2 5/8″, DAC 1 9/16″. Serial Number: 203917. Many gun lovers reading this ad regularly scour the internet for good deals on Fox shotguns.  One thing for certain; the availability of graded 20ga. Fox shotguns has dwindled to nearly zero.  Shooter/collectors have recognized the Fox 16ga. and 20ga. guns are the most well balanced, lightest weight, best handling guns of all the vintage American doubles.  It is also known that they have the simplest, most reliable actions as well.  They only made about 2400 A Grade 20ga. Fox guns, with likely less than 2000 remaining in action due to loss and damage. This little Fox A Grade, sn203917 produced in 1938, is an awesome find.  First, it is a factory English style grip, which is very rare (less than 10% made with English grip, or 240 guns).  The handling characteristics and aesthetics of an English grip little Fox is as close as an American double gun will come to being comparable to the finest English makers.  This gun weighs just 5lbs. 14oz. and balances dead on the hinge pin…it seems to float to your shoulder and balances perfectly in hand.  Next, the wood on the gun has much more figure than you will normally find on and A Grade Fox, and we all love nice wood!  Then we have this beautiful condition and pleasing patina to this gun, with 65% bright vivid factory case color, perfect screws, superb wood to metal fit, modern dimensions with the original butt plate…all these things add up to a superior vintage Fox gun.  The factory order card shows the gun “as shipped”; even the chokes and chambers are unaltered since leaving the factory.  Due to damage, loss, poor restorations, etc. there are only a few genuine, honest, factory correct, high-condition straight stocked Fox A Grade 20ga. guns left in the world, and the guys that own them are not likely to be selling them soon.  This Fox has perfect mechanics, excellent bores, and is tight as new on breech face and hinge pin.  THIS IS A “VFI CERTIFIED” GUN, meaning we stripped the forend iron and receiver to the smallest parts, ran it through the Ultrasonic cleaner, inspected all parts for integrity and function, then lubricated and reassembled (a $275 service!). VFI CERTIFIED guns carry a 90-day mechanical warranty. It is hard enough to find a decent A Grade 20ga. nowadays, let alone with a well figured English stock. Don’t let this one escape you. It will be a long time until another Fox A Grade 20 this nice is offered for sale. It will continue to gain value as you enjoy its use, so it is a grand investment tool for your hard-earned funds. Thanks for looking! Price: $6,450
