Wow! What a gun: 16 gauge W.W. Greener SxS sidelock…

W.W. GREENER SxS SIDELOCK 16 GAUGE SHOTGUN
W.W. GREENER SxS SIDELOCK 16 GAUGE SHOTGUN

W.W. Greener is a gunmaker that needs no introductions. Founded in 1829, the firm built firearms until 1965, when it was bought by Webley. In those 136 years, they built all sort of doubles, from percussion shotguns and big bore breech loading hammerguns to their famous “Facile Princeps” boxlocks. The firm also made sidelocks like this L70 and this L60.  Greener’s sporting arms were sold around the world and demand for them grew the company into what was once the largest sporting gun factory in the world.

In 1985, the W.W. Greener was bought by Graham Greener, W. W. Greener’s great grandson, and gunmakers David Dryhurst and Richard Tandy. Today, this team turns out some of the finest shotguns and double rifles in the world.

The sidelock you see here is one of their efforts. Completed in 2005, it’s an awfully impressive SxS, right up there with the very best I’ve seen. I love it’s almost Gothic excesses: The steps of metal at the bottom, breech-ends of the bbls, the flames of engraving on the tubes, the arcaded fences (much nicer than Woodward arcaded fences). Overall, these features give this double a ton of personality and make it a lot more interesting than staid, conservative guns like standard Purdeys.

Check out how deep and crisp the shaping is on the arcaded fences and on the beads that run up from the lockplates and around the toplever. And look at the little sweeps of metal on either side of the toplever–perfectly balanced, beautifully shaped. I love the big square top strap, too. Very distinct.

Fabulous gun alert: A 12g SxS by Ogden Smiths & Hussey…

Ogden Smiths & Hussey Imperial Ejector SxS Shotgun
Ogden Smiths & Hussey Imperial Ejector SxS Shotgun

In a the world of fine shotguns, “Best-gun” seems like a phrase with a pretty obvious definition: The very best shotgun a manufacturer can make. But because these were hand made by different people at different time periods, each one is a bit different. That means some bests are best-er than others.

Ogden Smiths used to be a fishing tackle company in London. In 1923, Walter Sydney Ogden Smith of the Ogden Smith family joined with the gunmaker Henry H. Hussey (son of gunmaker H.J. Hussey’s) to sell guns under the name Ogden Smiths & Hussey, Limited. This partnership lasted until 1933 and produced shotguns and rifles of different styles and qualities, including single-barrel trap guns like this and the best-quality, SxS, Imperial you see here.

Ogden Smiths & Hussey Imperial Ejector SxS Shotgun
Ogden Smiths & Hussey Imperial Ejector SxS Shotgun

The Hussey family Imperial grade sidelock shotguns since old man H.J. started his own operations after being fired from Lang & Hussey in 1898 (in fact, Lang & Hussey’s finest gun was also called the Imperial). Today, these Imperials pop up on the market on a regular basis. They’re nice guns, but none of the I’ve seen have been anywhere near as nice as this one. In fact, it’s this is the best Hussey Imperial I’ve ever seen.

On this one, the engraving on the fences and action, as well as the overall finish on all the metalwork, is a step above any of the others I’ve come across. With it’s high stock, long chambers, tight chokes, heavy proof, and wide, file-cut rib, it sure looks like it was made for live-pigeon shooting. Sure, the buttstock is a bit plain. But it is original and I bet the maker used the blank because of the strength of its straight grain. I’d be looking at the rest of the gun and never notice it.

Ogden Smiths & Hussey Imperial Ejector SxS Shotgun

Ogden Smiths & Hussey Imperial Ejector SxS Shotgun: A fabulous quality and condition pre-war 12 bore double trigger gun retaining nearly all of its original color 90% plus, and a London black.

The stock measures 14 1/2 to a checkered horn plate with a drop of 1 1/2 by 2 1/8. The gun weight is 7lbs. 7 oz. Articulated front trigger and the guard has 80% of it’s charcoal blue. Locking screws on the first guard and ejector stop screw. Blank gold oval. This gun is as good as it gets from a best maker. Price: $18,500
