Wow! What a nice looking J. D. Dougall hammergun…

Old doubles with damascus barrels and lots of original finish are my favorite shtoguns. This 12 gauge J.D. Dougall hammergun that just popped up on is a great example of why I love them so much.

Just look at how elegant this side-by-side is, and check out how finely executed everything is, from the checking and and the engraving to the metal-to-metal fit. Pretty stunning, and a testament to just how beautiful wood and metal can when it’s worked on by the right hands.

Couple cool double barrels: a W & C Scott & a J.D. Dougall…

Check ’em out. The first one is a 12g W.&C. Scott Premier. It’s a real early hammerless Premier side by side. According to the patent use number, it’s the 67th gun built on that action.

The second gun is an 8 gauge J.D. Dougall double barrel. Nice shotgun, but it needs work.
