E.J. CHURCHILL PREMIER QUALITY OVER UNDER DOUBLE BARREL SHOTGUNS PAIR
E.J. CHURCHILL PREMIER QUALITY OVER UNDER DOUBLE BARREL SHOTGUNS PAIR

E.J. CHURCHILL PREMIER QUALITY OVER UNDER DOUBLE BARREL SHOTGUNS PAIR: BOTH GUNS ARE THE SAME DIMENSIONS, 28″ SOLID RIB, CHOKED .007″ AND .014″ with 2 3/4″ CHAMBERS, DOUBLE TRIGGERS, EJECTORS, FIELD FOREARM, PISTOL GRIP, CHECKERED BUTT MINT CONDITION MAKERS CASE, 7 LBS 4 0Z, DIMENSIONS: 2″ DAH,1 9/16″ DAC, 14 1/8″ LOP. Matched pair E.J. Churchill O/U The Premier Quality.  12 Bore game guns.  Gun I made in 1926, Gun II Made in 1929. Serial Nr. 4220 was made for Abercrombie & Fitch and 3173 for a Mr. Wilson in San Francisco. They were both originally pigeon guns with 32” barrels. They were matched up as a pair and re-barreled to 28” through Churchill, Atkin, Grant & Lang, and Don Masters chocked IC/M and probably restocked by the maker, work which was done for a Danish nobleman whose coat of arms are on the escutcheon.  Both guns have a full London proof.  The actions of these guns are exact copies of the Woodward O&U actions, and were made by the firm of Hills, who also made the actions for Woodward. It was said at the time that Woodward built the Over & Under guns for Bob Churchill. This may be indeed true, but it is not likely, I believe Hill did all the actioning and in addition, they both used the same outworkers. A marked difference is the ejector system, which differs from Woodward and shows the Churchill input, as Bob Churchill felt it needed improvement. In total only 15 Over & Under guns were built by Churchill before WWII, of which this pair is believed to be in the best condition of those remaining.  One of these guns is pictured in the book “The House of Churchill” by Don Masters. Price: $46,500

A.H. Fox A-Grade 20 Gauge, SxS – FIGURED STRAIGHT STOCK NICE
A.H. Fox A-Grade 20 Gauge, SxS – FIGURED STRAIGHT STOCK NICE

A.H. Fox A-Grade 20 Gauge, SxS – FIGURED STRAIGHT STOCK NICE: 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. Price: $6,250

Another great deal: A pair of sidelock 20g Arrietas, $5500…

Arrieta - Model 557 - Churchill Style Matched Pair 20g Sidelock SxS Shotguns
Arrieta – Model 557 – Churchill Style Matched Pair 20g Sidelock SxS Shotguns

Following the theme of this morning’s post, here’s are two more guns long on quality and short on price. They’re a pair of 20g Arrietas built with Churchill-style 25″ barrels & narrow ribs. They feature genuine hand detachable sidelocks, ejectors, decent engraving and even well cut drop points. At $5500, they’re a steal.

Short-barreled shotguns have always been around, and at times, they’ve caught on as fads. Francotte exported a lot of doubles with 26″ bbls to the U.S. at the end of the 19th century. They were marketed as “brush guns”.

Robert Churchill introduced his famous XXV shotguns with 25″ barrels around the time of the first World War and they were popular for decades. These guns are built on Robert Churchill’s principles. Like their British counterparts, I’m sure they’re very lively, dynamic doubles, perfect for grouse and woodcock hunting.

Arrieta – Model 557 – Churchill Style Matched Pair Sidelock SxS Shotguns: 20ga, 2-3/4″, 25″ CYL / IC (.000 / .005) Churchill Rib, Ejectors, Hand Detachable Locks, Double Triggers (Front Articulated),LOP 15-3/8″, Drop 1-3/8″ to 2-3/8″, Weight 6 lbs. – 4 oz. Excellent Condition – About 95+%. Price: $5500 for the pair

Sorry, but no. A letter from E. J. Churchill Gunmakers…

The British gun trade has always had ups and downs, but the 1950s were especially tough for the industry. Coming off of the ruin of WW2 and the hard times that followed for all of Europe, a lot of gunmakers were having a tough time finding people to build their shotguns and rifles.

E.J. Churchill was one of them, and as you can read in this letter, they were having so much trouble that they were turning away work. This letter was sent to an American customer looking to have a Churchill Premier sidelock double rifle made for him .22LR. Yeah – .22 Long Rifle! Talk about cool. To bad it was never built. Driven wabbits, anyone?
