I. Hollis & Sons was a gunmaker in London from about 1861 – 1915. In that time they made everything from quality sporting guns to cheap export pieces. The oneĀ  you see here was probably one of their better pieces and it appears to be in excellent shape. Gulf Coast Guns just listed it for $995. If it’s sound, that’s a real good deal.

Here’s the listing from Gulf Coast’s site:
