A. Chapu ~ Stunning from pre-WWII Paris BEST quality Sidelocks: Hammerless Sidelocks – This along with our number 3967 is a fabulous pair of Shotguns. Quality of a Boss, Purdey, or Holland Royalâ€™s this pair is a joy to hold, fondle, and at a price much less than what the others would certainly cost you. BEST quality features include chopperlump barrels, double seared locks, bushed firing pins, and articulated front triggers. Featured in what I believe to be their original retailerâ€™s trunk case these guns are in outstanding condition. The weight and choking combined with their original 2 3/4″ chambering make these guns an excellent choice for sporting clays or the hard dying Montana, Dakota\’s and eastern Oregon ringnecks.

I’m not a huge fan of new guns. For some reason, few of them give me that “gotta have it” feeling. But for some reason, I do have soft spot for the CSMC 20 gauge Revelation OU.
I saw this double for the first time at the 2018 Safari Club Show and was impressed. Even though it’s has a very no-thrills look, its trim, color-case hardened action makes it stands out. And with a straight grip and upgraded deluxe walnut, it’s a handsome gun over-under.
