Engraved Ithaca 3E Flues with 30 Inch Chain Damascus Barrels Made 1919
Engraved Ithaca 3E Flues with 30 Inch Chain Damascus Barrels Made 1919

Engraved Ithaca 3E Flues with 30 Inch Chain Damascus Barrels Made 1919:
Guns by Sally-always the best for less. We are so proud to offer this fine example the classic American double made in Ithaca, New York. The Ithaca name has a very loyal following, and this example can show us why. This is the 3E grade, moving up the grade scale enough for some gorgeous walnut, truly unique game scene engraving, just as unique checkering patterns, and the icing on the cake is that she is fitted with 30 inch Chain Damascus barrels. This is a very striking firearm, and can get your attention from across the room. Even the top rib stands out, with its deep and distinctive machined matting. Made in the year of our Lord 1919, it does not look like it is 103 years old. The original blue is mostly strong, with some thinning at carry points and near the muzzle. The receiver bears sharp, high contrast engraving set against generous amounts of case color. The checkering is very good, and the Damascus pattern is just as bold as the rest of the gun. From the large ivory bead to the original Ithaca butt plate, this shotgun screams high grade American double. The lever resides to the right of center, ejectors toss the empties, and she is choked old school, full and full. Built for the long run, she weighs in at just under 7 1/2 pounds. Drops are 1 5/8 and 2 3/4 inches, with an LOP of 14 inches. Chambers are 2 3/4 inches, and RST loads can allow this beauty to keep knocking down birds for years to come. This fine double represents a true bargain in this category. While you can spend many times this amount for a high grade double, they won’t get any more attention in front of your safe than this Fluesy. If you have been looking for the right classic Ithaca to collect, for investment, or for a classy hunt, then look no further. Price: $2800

Superb Charles Boswell 410ga O/U Pinless sidelock - Truly a bespoke gun in every regard! Long barrels with superb dimensions
Superb Charles Boswell 410ga O/U Pinless sidelock – Truly a bespoke gun in every regard! Long barrels with superb dimensions

Superb Charles Boswell 410ga O/U Pinless sidelock – Truly a bespoke gun in every regard! Long barrels with superb dimensions: This gun made in 2007, after Chris Batha obtained the rights to the Charles Boswell name in 2004, to make bespoke best quality guns under this name, with prices starting at $85,000.00. This beautifully filed, fitted, and finished creation of functional art by many Purdey and Holland trained gunmakers (Gerry Swanson, finisher) would certainly be well in excess of that number. This gun has 30 – 1/4″ demi bloc barrels fitted with solid matted rib. Left side of top barrel is engraved “Charles Boswell London.” Breech end of top barrel and ejector bolsters are scroll engraved. Flat of bottom barrel is stamped with 2007 London nitro proofs for 3″ chambers. Serial number is engraved on bottom barrel.  Beautifully sculpted small sized over/under action fitted with pinless sidelocks is somewhat rounded with nicely filed beads. Action features non-automatic safety and gold plated non-selective single trigger and is engraved with near full coverage well cut rose and scroll by noted ex-Purdey engraver Dave Tallet. (Signature on trigger plate) “Charles Boswell” is in gold diagonally across front portions of lockplates, and also in arched banner on bottom of action over “London”. Blued single beaded small bow trigger guard with matching scroll has serial number in gold on tang. Well marbled and figured European walnut straight grip buttstock with checkered wood butt with engraved steel heel and toe plates. Classic drop points are behind lockplates, and well cut semi flat top point pattern checkering is at grip. A silver oval engraved “CW” is on toe line. Matching slim one piece ejector forend has Anson type release. Gun is housed in a best quality oak and brown leather case by Ian Tomlin, has gold canvas brown leather trimmed outer cover. Case is lined in burgundy cloth and has Boswell paper label in lid. Tops of case partitions are also of oak, and case contains Boswell marked square oil bottle and snap caps. Two piece cleaning rod is still in its original wrapper. Cleaning brushes are in black leather case. Price: $47,500

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.

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?
