Gun is beautifully full coverage scroll and game scene engraved as seen in the photos. The trigger guard and plate are beautifull blued and engraved as well with rolled edge trigger guard. Buttstock is very nicely  figured and perfectly laid out best English Walnut with straight grip, gold inlaid shield on toe line, and terminates with a spectacular factory engraved skeleton buttplate. Gun is housed in a contemporary full leather case with makers trade label as seen in the photos. Accompanied by a factory letter on the gun from 1998 outlining the gun as found today. See makers research letter in photos for full details on the production of this gun! The gun remains in near mint all original condition with virtually all factory original finishes remaining throughout. The gun appears to have been factory test fired and remains virtually unused since then. Bores are brilliant and shiny. Mechanics are perfect. Gun is very tight just as it was when made!

John Wilkes 28g boxlock SxS with exquisite engraving and features and also a long length of pull
John Wilkes 28g boxlock SxS with exquisite engraving and features and also a long length of pull

John Wilkes 28g boxlock SxS with exquisite engraving and features and also a long length of pull: Boxlocks – Built between the wars (1928) this little 28g. has many hard-to-find features as well as wonderful wood and engraving. The game scene engraving, the high grade wood, and the long length of pull make this petite flower a rare find. Wilkes was a highly respected London gun maker. Serial Number: 10181 Ejectors: Yes Barrels: 26″ Barrel Type: Steel Action: Boxlock Ejector Gauge: 28 gauge Stock Comb: 1 7/16″ Stock Heel: 2 3/16″ Stock Cast: 1/8″ LOP: 15″ Weight: 5 lbs 14 ozs Choke Left: .018 full in 28g Choke Right: .013″ Mod Proof:Nitro: 2 3/4″ Minimum Wall Thickness Left: .032″ Minimum Wall Thickness Right: .033.  It is said in the UK that of all the double guns built there before WWII that 90% were 12g. guns. The next most common gauge among the remaining 10% were 20g. guns, the next were 16g. guns, and the next .410 doubles. Interesting that 28g. were the smallest and rarest gauge of guns built in the UK during this period. This explains why they are so hard for us to find and why it is common when we are searching for them that when asking a dealer they often say “Dont you know that 28g. guns made in the UK are rare as rocking horse shit?” Price: $12,600*

It is the ultimate bird or small gauge skeet gun. I am selling this one on consignment and as such lay-a-way can’t be used. It does of course have the standard 3-day inspection. Price: $6,799*

CONNECTICUT SHOTGUN CUSTOM RBL- 12 GAUGE
CONNECTICUT SHOTGUN CUSTOM RBL- 12 GAUGE

CONNECTICUT SHOTGUN CUSTOM RBL – 12 GAUGE: I have for sale a very special Connecticut Shotgun RBL 12 Gauge. I had this RBL custom made to my specifications. I traveled to the Connecticut Shotgun facility and picked out the wood blank for the stock and discussed just what I wanted in the gun. The stock blank was $1K. I wanted it light for a 12 so it is built on a 16-gauge frame and weighs 6Lb. 9 ounces on my digital scale. It has double triggers, and comes with six choke tubes ic through full in a nice leather case. I had them put a very classy metal heel and toe plate on the butt. The barrels are 28”. The LOP is 14 ¼”, DAC 1 ¼” and DAH is 2 ¼”. Perfect modern dimensions. Screws are perfect and have never been turned. I have used it mostly for Sporting Clays, but with the weight it is also suited for Pheasant, Grouse, Woodcock and Quail hunting. There are a few very minor safe marks in the stock and minimal wear to the ends of the barrels from going in and out of a soft gun case. The case colors are 100% and beautiful. The engraving is one of my favorites. I am selling it as I just do not shoot it much anymore and it should be appreciated and used by someone who would. This RBL is one of a kind and I do not think you can even get a custom RBL today. Price: $5,695*

The first one looks brand new, and it was most likely made as a true pigeon gun. The Zanotti looks like a good, basic boxlock, the kind of SxS that would be perfect for all-around upland hunting.

A.A. Brown 20g Super De Luxe Sidelock SxS Shotgun
A.A. Brown 20g Super De Luxe Sidelock SxS Shotgun

A.A. Brown 20g Super De Luxe Sidelock SxS Shotgun: The Supreme De Luxe self-opening sidelock ejector by A.A. Brown & Sons is only made bespoke and is “best quality” in every sense.  The Supreme De Luxe is based on the well proven H&H type bar-action sidelock with ABAS’ distinct shape; a semi-rounded action body with double beads hand-filed into the bar and complemented by slightly domed lock plates. In addition, the action has ribbed cocking indicators, disk-set strikers, charcoal blued pins and pegs, gilded lock work for corrosion resistance, two triggers, and an automatic safety with the word “SAFE” inlaid in gold.  Completed in 2002 this Supreme De Luxe was engraved by the very well-known and highly regarded (and now retired) Keith Thomas in the maker’s house pattern bouquet and scroll with the maker’s name inside unfurled banners. On the bottom of the action fine scroll surrounds a game scene of a woodcock flying among timber above the words “Supreme De Luxe” engraved below the game scene’s vignette.
The subtle roundness of the lock plates and action body continues through the drop points and wrist of the nicely figured walnut stock contributing to how good these ABAS guns feel in the hands. The stock has a 15 9/16” LOP over a checkered butt paired with a “Woodward” style pistol grip. Originally made for a left-hand shooter, the guard bow edge is rolled on its left side, but the triggers and stock are now filed and cast for a right-hand shooter. The stock oval carries the initials: V.V.   The splinter forend has an Anson push rod and is slightly elongated giving the gun a sleek profile and allowing for the off-hand arm to stretch out a bit. The forend and pistol grip have a flat-top checkering, a very specialized skill and something not often seen on today’s best quality guns, with Mullered borders. The chopper-lump barrels are just over 30” and proofed in Birmingham in 1999 with 2 3/4” chambers. Each barrel is precisely bored at .615” with .007” choke in the right and .014” choke in the left. The Supreme De Luxe also incorporates an H&H style self-opening mechanism mounted to the bottom of the barrels under the forend.   The gun was specially commissioned to be built as a 20g on a slightly larger 16g frame for volume shooting, yet the gun weighs a lively 6 lbs. 2.6 oz.  The gun is finished with a traditional color hardened action body, lock plates, and forend iron and blacked furniture and complete in a vintage oak & leather case refitted for this gun and relined in a green baize with a maker’s leather trade label. Price: $49,000*

Lot 51: RARE AND ICONIC L.C. SMITH A-3 GRADE 12 GAUGE SHOTGUN ILLUSTRATED PROFUSELY IN LT. COL WM BROPHY’S “L.C. SMITH SHOTGUNS” BOOK: SN. 205157. The A3 Grade was introduced to the line in 1895 as “The finest gun in the world for the money”. It was the highest grade L.C. Smith until the grade designations were changed in 1913. Made in 1906 with 30” Whitworth Fluid steel bbls, 2-3/4” chambers, matted concave rib and bbl extension with red mid and ivory front bead. Muzzles are nicely crowned and have bands of engraving as well as 1” scroll wedges. Breech ends of bbls have 2-1/2” wedges of scroll on tops and gold inlaid lightning bolts running through each and are hand engraved “Sir Joseph Whitworth Fluid Compressed Steel” / “Made to Order By the Hunter Arms Co. Fulton, NY”. Later factory replacement type-2 beavertail forend is finely checkered with fleur-de-lis ribbon at center and fully engraved banjo type roll release and sculptured iron. Inside of forend iron is hand engraved with scrollwork, SN and 1901 Lewis Ejector patent info. Bbl flats are nicely engine turned with hand engraved SN, bottom of tubes w/original Whitworth trademark stamps and forend lug stamped “A 3”. Masterfully engraved case hardened sidelock action is most certainly the work of Albert E. Kraus, employed from 1890-1945.

Lot 51: RARE AND ICONIC L.C. SMITH A-3 GRADE 12 GAUGE SHOTGUN ILLUSTRATED PROFUSELY IN LT. COL WM BROPHY’S “L.C. SMITH SHOTGUNS” BOOK

Lockplates are extensively engraved in intricate foliate scrollwork and hidden game scenes with a relief engraved Setter in an oval panel on left plate, relief Pointer in panel on right, and “L.C.Smith ” in a crescent forward of the lock pin on each side. Receiver body has similar foliate scroll engraving interspersed w/ bouquet flourishes and bas-relief vine and scrollwork at the fences. The classic Setter with fallen quail on trigger plate, synonymous with the L.C.Smith brand, is beautifully executed. Blued trigger guard is rose and scroll engraved with hand-cut SN at tang. Auto ejectors, “Hunter One -Trigger”, non-auto safety. Gold inlaid “S” in front of flat safety slide.

Lot 51: RARE AND ICONIC L.C. SMITH A-3 GRADE 12 GAUGE SHOTGUN ILLUSTRATED PROFUSELY IN LT. COL WM BROPHY’S “L.C. SMITH SHOTGUNS” BOOK

Beautiful straight-hand buttstock of richly figured dark-streaked European walnut is finely checkered with fleur-de-lis and ribbon patterns terminating with an aging “No-Shoc” pad. Buttstock and forend are most certainly a period of use factory replacements (post-1920) and have been on the gun for much of its lifetime.

Lot 51: RARE AND ICONIC L.C. SMITH A-3 GRADE 12 GAUGE SHOTGUN ILLUSTRATED PROFUSELY IN LT. COL WM BROPHY’S “L.C. SMITH SHOTGUNS” BOOK

This exact gun is illustrated in ‘L.C.Smith Shotguns, LTC Wm S. Brophy, 1983 on the cover and pp 21, 47-49, 164-169, 187-188. Accompanied by a L.C.Smith Collectors Association research letter dated January 28, 2022, identifying this gun as being finished January 22, 1906 as one of only 17 twelve gauge guns total. No stock configuration nor shipping info is recorded but there is a notation “McR” at the margin of the ledger for this entry and likely indicates the owner at one time. Also accompanied by archival A & F records, kindly supplied by Griffin & Howe Research, indicating the gun, in its current configuration, was consigned to them by E.A.Thorne in 1960 and sold to H. Gordon Moore in 1961. Harry Gordon Moore, Jr. resided much of his adult life in Lynchburg VA. Mr. Moore was also the author of “Trigger Pullers: An Attempt to Convey the Art of Wingshooting,1976” a compendium of Moore’s articles on gamebird shooting, first published in Field & Stream, Outdoor Life, and The Shooter’s Bible. Note: Moore and Brophy were certainly literary colleagues in the Sporting Fraternity and a friendly loan of the A3 for Brophy’s book is probable. Charlie Hunter spent his lifetime in and around the Staunton – Lynchburg area and was undoubtedly well-acquainted with fellow sportsman Moore. Hunter likely acquired this gun from Moore directly or from his estate after his passing in 1992.

Browning Superposed SuperLight 28ga & 20ga – 28” 26.5” – IC/M – ca. 1984 – The Ultimate Upland Combo – Only One in Existence

Browning Superposed SuperLight 28ga & 20ga – 28” 26.5” – IC/M – ca. 1984 – The Ultimate Upland Combo – Only One in Existence: Gregoire Engraved and Signed – I acquired this gun from the original owner some years back – at that time it was unfired. Since then, I found a set of 28ga barrels “in the white” from Browning and had them custom fitted to this gun, turning into the package I’m presenting today. The work was done by Browning Master Gunsmith and the barrels are numbered #1 and #2 respectively. I have hunted this gun and have enjoyed it thoroughly. The 28ga barrels are Lightning Model Barrels but because of the era they fit perfectly and I like both the wider Lightning field rib on the 28ga and the tapered rib of the 20ga barrels – best of both worlds. The package comes ready to travel in a Negrini Uplander Model case – I have used it during air travel and it is the coolest and most functional case for this setup.  This is a very fine shotgun and is one of 217 total Superlight guns made in 1983/1984 era – some of the last of the Belgium guns. I guess the question becomes, where can a man find a 28ga superlight…? Very hard to find. Note: I have a Browning letter for the original 20ga configuration – obviously does not talk about 28ga barrels. Price: $27,995

Auction alert: A rare LC Smith 8 gauge Quality No. 2 …

LC SMITH 8 GAUGE SXS NO.2 Grade, 32" barrels, very RARE and very good
LC SMITH 8 GAUGE SXS NO.2 Grade, 32″ barrels, very RARE and very good

Eight gauges — the double whopper with cheese of shotguns. In the 19th and early 20th century, ones like this LC Smith were used by waterfowlers up and down the East Coast for long range shots at ducks, Canada Geese and Swans.

This LC Smith is a Quality No. 2 made in the late 1890s. Like all American-made 8s, it’s a rare shotgun. According to the LC Smith collector’s site, LC Smith made just thirty-eight 8 gauge shotguns No. 2. Even though this was a lower middle-grade gun when it was new, it was still expensive. And because it was so specialized a gun, whoever bought it must have been very into waterfowling.

Rare American classics: 12g L.C. Smith Long Range Water Fowl SxSs….

Scarce L.C.. Smith Specialty grade 12ga "Long Range" 32" fantastic duck gun!
Scarce L.C.. Smith Specialty grade 12ga “Long Range” 32″ fantastic duck gun!

Power and range have always been obsessions with shooters, and as long as people have been using shotguns, they’ve tried to build ones that can reach out further and take game at longer ranges.

In the early ’20s, Fox introduced its contribution to this tradition: the A.H. Fox HE-grade SxSs. These guns were built to take ducks at long ranges using Western’s new12-gauge Super-X shotgun shells.

Around the same time as Fox, L.C. Smith got into the long-range game with its Long Range Wild Fowl Guns. These Smiths were also made to shoot Western’s new ammo and the company claimed “The killing range of this gun is from 70 to 85 yards, and the gun is capable of killing at even longer distances.”

The L.C. Smith Long Range Wild Fowl Guns were big 12 gauges built with wide, heavy actions and barrels built to withstand the recoil from heavy loads. They weighed 8 – 8 1/2 lbs and had 30″ or 32″ barrels with 3″ chambers and were designed to handle 1 3/8-oz of shot. Chokes, as you can imagine, were tight.

L.C. Smith 12 Gauge - LONG RANGE, 3", STRAIGHT GRIP, SST, SxS SHOTGUN
L.C. Smith 12 Gauge – LONG RANGE, 3″, STRAIGHT GRIP, SST, SxS SHOTGUN

This Field grade Long Range Water Fowl Gun was made in 1922, a few years before L.C. Smith had fully developed the features of these guns and come up with a consistent way to designate them. I’ll let the seller tell you all about it:

L.C. Smith 12 Gauge – LONG RANGE, 3″, STRAIGHT GRIP, SST, SxS SHOTGUN:

Description:
General Specs: L.C. Smith, Year 1922, 12 Gauge, 7lbs 12oz, Chokes F/F, LOP 14″ rear trigger, DAH 2 7/8″, DAC 1 13/16″
Serial Number: RE51777

L.C. Smith 12 Gauge - LONG RANGE, 3", STRAIGHT GRIP, SST, SxS SHOTGUN
L.C. Smith 12 Gauge – LONG RANGE, 3″, STRAIGHT GRIP, SST, SxS SHOTGUN

Anyone who has studied L.C. Smith is aware of their famous “LONG RANGE” waterfowler.  Made to shoot a heavy 1 3/8oz. load while keeping patterns 90% 40 yards, the Long Range is very sought after and in high condition like this one, nearly impossible to find.  Special attention to chamber, bore, and chokes from the finest barrel men in the business is what made the L.C. Smith Long Range gun a legend.  The Long Range had heavy barrels with reinforced forend lug, standard frame, 3” chambers, long barrels, and tight chokes.  Those are the features that make a L.C. Smith a Long Range gun.  The Long Range was not officially introduced to the public until 1923 and most (definitely not all) were marked with “LONG RANGE” on the bottom of the barrel lug visible on the underside of the action.  This Field Grade Long Range, snRE51777, was built and shipped in 1922 and does not have the “LONG RANGE” marking on the barrel lug.  It does have all the features of a Long Range and we have the L.C. Smith Collectors Association letter and the Cody Firearms Museum letter documenting it is a Long Range, one of about 2000 ever made.  Not so “Rare”, but only 343 had ejectors, and only 66 had single selective triggers.  Now that is RARE!  Now consider the factory English stock (only found on about 10% of the total production of L.C. Smith guns) and you have A VERY RARE COMBINATION INDEED. NOW, FOR THE FINAL CLAIM TO AN EXTREMELY RARE FIND…THIS GUN HAS 98% FACTORY CONDITION TO GO WITH ALL THE REST!

L.C. Smith 12 Gauge – LONG RANGE, 3″, STRAIGHT GRIP, SST, SxS SHOTGUN

For those of you that admire the famous Elsie LONG RANGE, and the magic and skills of some of the best bore and choke men that ever lived, this is the “Holy Grail”.  Truly a fine example of an untouched, factory original, 98% condition in case color, blue, and stock finish in a waterfowler from the heydays.  You can still see jeweling on the breech face of the barrel and all the original trigger blue remains on the trigger blade. The 32” F/F choked barrels match to perfection from left to right.  Of the last 1000 barrels I have measured up, this is the only set that has the same bore diameter, barrel wall thickness, and choke constriction.  It is simply unheard of.  And it is all untouched barrel work as it left the factory.  This gun even has a LONG STOCK WITH EXCELLENT SHOOTING DIMENSIONS and a 14” LOP measured from a single trigger in the rear position to the end of the butt plate.  Add a vintage pad and you will have 14 ¾” LOP.  This gun has everything the modern collector/shooter is looking for and is almost impossible to find.  You can tell this will be an amazing gun in the field.  A gun sure to increase in value as you enjoy its use.  A classic waterfowler at home in the blind or whacking turkey, blocking for pheasants, or blasting long range doves, this is a chance to own a very nice Elsie! Price: $5,750
