The BLs feature a shallow, low profile action scaled to match the gauge. They were priced to be values – not cheap, but well made guns at fair prices. They came in a number of grades, with the BL-5s being the highest. All of them were rugged, reliable doubles, built to deliver a lot of quality for a fair amount of money.

Extraordinary early Parker A1 Special 12ga 2 barrel set- 30” and 34” - PGCA letter ordered by W.F. Parker! Deepest relief engraving I’ve ever seen
Extraordinary early Parker A1 Special 12ga 2 barrel set- 30” and 34” – PGCA letter ordered by W.F. Parker! Deepest relief engraving I’ve ever seen

Extraordinary early Parker A1 Special 12ga 2 barrel set- 30” and 34” – PGCA letter ordered by W.F. Parker! Deepest relief engraving I’ve ever seen!: Per the PGCA Research Letter – This gun Ordered by and likely used by Wilbur F. Parker!  Truly Exceptional Parker A1 Special 12ga two barrel set, made in 1907 on a #2 Frame.  This very rare gun is equipped with two sets of Whitworth Fluid Steel barrels- one set is 30″ long (original set), the other is 34″ (also definitely factory) long- an extreme rarity in these guns and also extremely desirable today.  This gun would make the ultimate vintage Pigeon Gun.  This gun currently sports a fantastic straight stock with gold plated double triggers, beavertail forend, and was made with auto ejectors, auto safety, and has older Silver’s type pad.  The top lever is beautifully sculpted as are the breech balls as seen in the photos.  These early A-1 Specials are some of the best engraved of all the Parker shotguns and this one is no exception.  The quality of the relief flowers are spectacular and by far the best executed I have seen.  The depth of the relief engraving and the quality is the finest on any Parker I have examined.  The fully engraved safety with gold inlaid “SAFE” in front.  See the photos for details on the engraving – it is breathtaking.  The PGCA letter for this gun is fascininating and worthy of review- see the photos for this as well. This gun remains in pleasing overall condition.  The gun has been updated, likely by Remington with both sets of barrels now having ventilated ribs, which are good and sound.  Mechanics are crisp throughout.  The gun has been completely restored with later Remington case color- likely done when the gun went back in for service in 43,45, or 46, though undoubtedly a Remington Parker work and quality.  The mechanics are crisp and the bores are brilliant and shiny. This extremely rare and desirable Parker is both pleasing to look at in the gun room and in the field.  Price: $60,000

“SCARCE” James Purdey of London Double Rifle chambered in .450 BPE that was manufactured in 1868 for the 15th Duke of Norfolk

“SCARCE” James Purdey of London Double Rifle chambered in .450 BPE that was manufactured in 1868 for the 15th Duke of Norfolk:  The amount of man hours was very high when one of these rifles was made. From the factory letter we know that this rifle was completed in 1868. It was built for the Duke of Norfolk and stocked by John Robertson. The caliber is listed as a 60 bore which is the equivalent to the .450 BPE cartridge. This J. Purdey .450 “BPE” Black Powder Express Rotary Underlever Big Game Hammer Double Rifle is all matching with no alterations. The bores are in excellent condition being bright with excellent lands and grooves in the 30” barrels. It has a 3-leaf rear sight with one fixed and two folding blades. Each blade has a Platinum center line and are marked “100, 200 and 250.” The finish shows no signs of rust or pitting with strong pattern colors. The forearm is in very fine condition with no cracks and one chip as shown. The butt stock is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. This after 153 years is quite amazing. The receiver shows very fine and detailed engraving as you can see in the pictures. The rifle is tight and obviously has seen very little use over the decades. The rifle functions as it should with no issues. The original oak case has some accessories and the original cleaning rod. The center lock mechanism is missing but both side levers are present. No FFL transfer is needed to transfer this antique. The factory letter will be included. Price: $10K

J & W Tolley 4 Bore – 1895, 95% CASE COLOR
J & W Tolley 4 Bore – 1895, 95% CASE COLOR

J & W Tolley 4 Bore – 1895, 95% CASE COLOR: 15lbs 12oz, Serial Number: 7804. J. & W. Tolley was an English gunmaker of some notoriety, mostly noted for large bore waterfowlers.  From about 1894 through 1903 they occupied a London address and that was when this gun was made.  Tolley guns became known for their quality in 1894 with their appointment as gunmakers to the King of Portugal and to the Persian Royal family.  These are not casual appointments, and the quality can be seen in their guns from the London address after 1894.  This amazing find is a FULLY FACTORY ORIGINAL, HIGH CONDITION, UNTOUCHED single barrel hammer gun with a Jones Underlever locking system produced by J & W Tolley 126 years ago.  The serial number (7804) and proof marks on the bottom of the barrel indicates a manufacture date of 1895.  The action retains 85% factory case color with some fading, nice border engraving with screws and breech area nicely but sparsely decorated.  The underlever and full tang trigger guard retain 95% vivid factory case colors.  The Jones underlever is known for its robust lock-up, and the barrels are tight on the breech face as a new gun.  The 38” fluid steel barrel has excellent mirror bore, 4” chamber, .940 bore diameter with extra full choke 52 thou restriction, and a minimum barrel wall thickness of .106”!  Barrel has normal and numerous light handling marks and 85% factory blue.  The mechanics are excellent, with a crisp trigger, strong springs, and perfect screws.  The fit of wood to metal is impeccable, and the checkering shows almost no wear.  The stock measurements are     14 9/16” LOP with a drop at heel of 2 ¾”.  WE HAVE PRESENTED THIS GUN IN “AS FOUND CONDITION” WITHOUT CLEANING OR ALTERING THE GUN.  We generally prescribe to cleaning up checkering and replacing decrepit butt pads before showing the gun, but some collectors prefer to choose what cleaning should be done.  We did function check the entire gun and it is awesome.  If you want service done to the gun we can arrange that with our gunsmith department and get the work done without delay.  The gun is a BEAST when brought to shoulder…IT IS A BEHEMOTH!  Weighing 15 3/4lbs. and balanced 2½” in front of the hinge pin, this is a gun that could be fired from the shoulder but was likely rested in the punt boat on a sack of grain.  There is a rear flip-up sight used to line up on the flock of waterfowl this gun was made to decimate, one shot at a time.  These are rare guns in 4 bore and to find a waterfowler in this high factory original condition is a treasure found.Price: $9,950.00

The gun now has an older silvers type pad with 14 1/2” LOP. As best I can tell it has 0 cast and Drop at comb 1 5/8 “ and Drop at heel 2 5/8 “. These dimensions are fantastic!

Overall, the gun remains in pleasing condition with more than 95% barrel blue, around 30-40% case color. Stocks have been expertly freshened up. The gun is mechanically superb, on face, and tight. These 32″ 20ga guns are highly coveted and this gun being a DuBray ordered gun with the letter, magnum chambers and straight stock/double trigger combo is absolutely a show stopper. Price: $16,500

The most extraordinary Fox Shotgun upgrade Extant – A Grade Special Made for W.H. Gough with nearly a dozen Gold Inlays- Truly Exceptional!!!

The most extraordinary Fox Shotgun upgrade Extant – A Grade Special Made for W.H. Gough with nearly a dozen Gold Inlays- Truly Exceptional!!!: Easily the most extraordinary and exceptional A.H. Fox shotgun we know of is serial number 6500, made for W.H. Gough.  This gun, an exact duplicate of the the original is truly the epitome of the gun makers art.  This gun, also serial number 6500, made with 30″ Krupp fluid steel barrels that have a fully hand engraved top rib and floral scroll wedges at the muzzle ends as well as gold inlays and 3″ floral scroll wedges at the breech.  The gun has a splinter forend, capped ball grip, gold plated double triggers, auto ejectors, and auto safety.  The gun is completely and fully engraved in exact duplication of serial number 6500 with full Gough floral scroll throughout the frame.  Gold “SAFE” in front of safety as well as gold inscription on top rib which reads “Built Expressly for W.H. Gough by A.H. Fox Gun Co, Philadelphia, PA”. This gun was made with extraordinary European Walnut stocks which are fabulously carved in leafy and floral patterns.  The butt terminates with a 1/2″ full leather covered pad.  Ball grip with incredible horn and gold cap.  The quality of the workmanship on this gun cannot be overstated. This gun is truly a display of what can be done, when no expense is spared in the art of gunmaking.  The gold inlays speak for themselves and the beauty of this gun cannot be overstated. If you are someone who is only satisfied by “the very best” look no further.  The cost of the work on this gun would far exceed $100k if done today, and the original gun is not obtainable at 2 or 3x that amount. This gun is offered at $64,500 plus shipping and insurance to your FFL. Price: $64,500

W & C Scott .410 – 1926, EJECTORS, 28”, IN PROOF, NICE WOOD
W & C Scott .410 – 1926, EJECTORS, 28”, IN PROOF, NICE WOOD

W & C Scott .410 – 1926, EJECTORS, 28”, IN PROOF, NICE WOOD: Serial Number: 98002. 5lbs 1oz, Chokes F/F, LOP 14 1/2″, DAH 2 13/16″, DAC 1 9/16″. What a delightful find we have here with a W & C Scott and Sons baby frame .410 BOXLOCK EJECTOR GUN WITH 28” BARRELS AND A FULL-LENGTH ORIGINAL BUTTSTOCK MEASURING 14 ½” LOP TO THE HORN BUTTPLATE.  I emphasize this as most British made .410 doubleguns have short barrels and short stocks, and usually are extractor only guns built for youthful shooters or ladies.  To find an example of a “full-size” .410 from a well-known British maker with a London address on the barrels is a treasure in hand!  This gun, sn98002, was built in 1926 and is in excellent condition, STILL IN PROOF WITH 2 ½” CHAMBERS AND BORE DIAMETER OF .411.  Weighing just 5lbs. 1oz. and balanced just ahead of the hinge pin, this is a true, scaled frame, boxlock ejector.  The hard-to-find 28” barrels have tight ribs, mirror shiny bores choked F/F, with no dents or dings, newly reblacked to perfection, fit tight as new to the hinge pin and breech face, and the engraved maker’s name and address still sharp and clear on the barrels.  The action and mechanics are superb, as this is a VFI CERTIFIED GUN, HAVING BEEN STRIPPED TO THE SMALLEST PART, ULTRASONIC CLEANED, EACH PART INSPECTED FOR INTEGRITY AND FUNCTION, PROPERLY LUBRICATED AND REASSEMBLED, NOW WITH A 90 DAY MECHANICAL WARRANTY.  The action retains about 30% fading factory original case color and the bottom plate retains 80% of the original blue, the ejectors are strong and timed, triggers are crisp, screws are excellent, fine English scroll engraving and fancy borders adorn the action in a most pleasant way.  The action is tight with the lever right of center.  The wood is well figured and freshly restored to perfection with hand-rubbed Truoil finish to bring out the figure.  The wood-to-metal fit is tight, the original flat-topped checkering has been cleaned up, and there are no chips or cracks anywhere.  THIS IS A GORGEOUS LITTLE BRITISH .410!  The stock dimensions are modern (see table below), and this gun is ready to shoot for another 95 years with proper care.  It is a rare find to have all the best features found in a scaled frame .410, ie 28” barrels, in proof, long LOP, ejectors, superb mechanics, and freshly restored barrels, trigger guard, and wood…there is nothing left to do but go break a few clays and then let the quail, woodcock, or other upland game realize that you are deadly with this diminutive British double.  This is an investment grade gun that you will enjoy as it continues to grow in value and demand will never cease for such a gun.  Don’t hesitate, as this one won’t last long at the fair price we are presenting here. Price: $6,750
