Some people dream about owning a Saville Row suit or an Aston Martin. I’ve always wanted a pair of best-quality British shotguns, just like the Holland & Holland Royals you see here. These side-by-sides are coming up Monday in Guyetter and Deeter’s Sept 2023 Fine Sporting Arms auction.

These Royals are a great mix of new and old. They were built around 1999, so they were built with modern metals, fresh wood, and steel-shot suitable choke tubes. Their barrels have original 2 3/4″ chambers, thick walls, and excellent bore measurements. The guns have never been messed with by an incompetent gunsmith or even been used in the field.

Because they’re Royals, they still have all the classic features that make these guns some of the finest in the world: The famous Holland & Holland-patent sidelock action and ejector system, the company’s hand-detachable locks, their self-opening system, and London level, best-quality construction throughout.

These fine guns were proofed in 1999 and were built with choke tubes and brl proportions to accept steel shot. The 28″ chopper lump brls are engraved “The Royal” on slightly swamped narrow game ribs. “Holland & Holland” and their Bruton Street address are engraved on tops of brls. The gold numeral “1” or “2” is inlaid at rear of rib, top lever and forend tip.  Brl flats are stamped with 1999 London nitro proofs for 2-3/4″ chambers at 850 BAR. Importers info (“H&H” “NYNY”) is on bottom of rear lumps. Bottoms of brls are stamped with SNs and Holland patent self opening assist springs are installed. Case hardened Royal sidelock actions feature automatic safetys (“SAFE” inlaid in gold), hand detachable sidelocks with levers on left lockplates, gold band tumbler end cocking indicators and double triggers. Actions are engraved in traditional Holland Royal style which originated around 1900. This classic engraving consists of near full coverage varying size open shaded scroll within some geometric borders with “Holland & Holland” in arched device on each lockplate. Bottoms of actions are engraved “THE ROYAL”.

CONDITION

Exceptionally fine, appear to be very close to “as new” with only a very faint firing halo on the breech face of Gun #1. Gun #2 appears essentially unfired. Gun #1 also exhibits some very light silvering on beads, which is not present on Gun #2. Both guns have been exceptionally well cared for with only a very few barely discernable minor handling and assembly marks in all wood and metal finishes. Case shows a few scuffs and marks on exterior. Leather straps and handle are good. Interior cloth is very fine with some minor rubs, accessories are very fine. A lovely pair of guns which should be usable well into the future regardless of changes in the law.

Magnificently engraved, pristine Beretta S3EL 12 ga O/U sidelock from golden era (1956) with rare DT and ejectors in its factory case and cover

Magnificently engraved, pristine Beretta S3EL 12 ga O/U sidelock from golden era (1956) with rare DT and ejectors in its factory case and cover: What a fantastic, classic configuration, a time capsule from the late 1950s, almost as-new.  Profusely engraved best quality hand-made gun from Beretta’s best era of engraving and workmanship (by the then still working pre-war generation of gunmakers).  These guns were Beretta’s tops and then were mostly hand-crafted in a seperate facility out of special steels for the barrrels (very hard hi chromium content) and highest quality wood and engraving.  Beretta’s pre-1960s ‘S” sidelock design is far superior and more expensive to make than those on the later “S0″designated  guns and certainly superior than today’s “SOs”. Rennaissance Scroll engraved sidelocks, receiver and mounts (furniture) of Master Quality signed in small engraved letters “U.G.” just forward of trigger guard.  Rare double triggers, auto ejectors, cocking indicators, auto safety. All original and “about mint” with all the blue and coin finish. Straight grip fancy walnut and fine checkering with original finishes in perfect condition. 14 9/16 in LOP to checkered butt. 1 1/2 in and 2 in drops, cast-off for RH is 1/4, pitch= 6 in. Matching checkered game style forearm. Barrels are 28 3/8″ in with solid rib choked 27 pts lower (.027) and 38 pts upper (.038),  2 3/4 in chambers. Mint bores and in perfect working order. This gun just has not been used and is as tight as new. Weight is 7 lbs, 3 oz and balances 1/2 in in front of hinge pin, very dynamic handling. With original Beretta EL grade fitted luggage case and original canvas protective outer cover. I am also including at this pricea new Negrini leather case with a canvas protective cover ($650 value) which I store it in, to preserve the original for another 67 years!  Price: $12,950*

As good as it gets: a 10g Holland & Holland Royal SxS …

A superb Holland & Holland Royal 10g with 31" barrels
A superb Holland & Holland Royal 10g with 31″ barrels

On the face of it, the word “best” s a simple meaning: Traditionally, it was the top-grade gun built by a manufacturer. But in an era when guns were almost entirely hand made, quality varied, and some best guns were best-er than others.

A superb Holland & Holland Royal 10g with 31" barrels
A superb Holland & Holland Royal 10g with 31″ barrels

Check out this H&H Royal to see what I mean. I don’t know who they made this gun for or why they did such a nice job on it, but it’s one of the finest Holland & Holland Royal I’ve seen.

A superb Holland & Holland Royal 10g with 31" barrels
A superb Holland & Holland Royal 10g with 31″ barrels

The Royal is Holland & Holland’s flagship gun. They’ve been building it since the 1890s, and it has been copied by countless makers in the UK to Spain, Germany, and Japan.

A superb Holland & Holland Royal 10g with 31" barrels
A superb Holland & Holland Royal 10g with 31″ barrels

The engraving pattern on this gun is the company’s famous acanthus-scroll (inspired by the work of textile designer William Morris), but it’s executed a higher level than what you see on your average Royal. Everything is done a bit better, too. The action is a bit crisper, the wood a bit more elegant, the checkering a bit more careful. Overall, it’s a stunning gun.

Belgian Browning Super Light Superposed 20 Ga
Belgian Browning Super Light Superposed 20 Ga

Belgian Browning Super Light Superposed 20 Ga: Consigned to Cole’s is this very nice Belgian Browning Superposed Super Light in 20 ga with 26-inch barrels.  The shotgun bears serial # 223PW02990.  The bores are excellent.  The upper barrel is choked Mod (**) and the lower is choked IC (**-).  This shotgun weighs in at 5lbs 14 oz, a true super lightweight.  The shotgun has a long tang, straight grip.  The LOP is 14 ¾” and terminates with a Decelerator recoil pad.  The stock has various minor nicks and dings from days afield.    The gun is nice and tight and there is no looseness to be found open or when in battery. The bluing is just starting to flake from the bottom of the receiver from carry.  Some very minor loss of factory finish is observed along the tang as well.  Again, this from honest use pursuing dove and quail.  One of the best I have seen or found out here in a very, very long time. Price: $4650

The overall condition of this gun is very good to excellent rating in the 90% range. It has magnificent case hardened scalloped coloring enhanced by intricate engraving patterns and a blue finish on the frame, boxlock, lever and breech areas. The hardwood checkered Wales type grip and forearm are distinct and show very little ware. The top lever and boxlock plate also show fine engraving patterns adding value to this gun. Lock up is tight and the trigger mechanics are crisp. Overall the bluing is very uniform on both barrels with the possible exception of some very small age spots on the right side barrel.

William Young, Bury St Edmunds, S’folk. Exceptional 19-bore double barreled flintlock sporting gun, ca. 1815

William Young, Bury St Edmunds, S’folk. Exceptional 19-bore double barreled flintlock sporting gun, ca. 1815: Weight: 5 Lbs. 15 oz.  Superb 30” Damascus barrels retaining much of an original brown finish have excellent bores which appear to be unaltered from their original boring. Stepped-in breeches with platinum touch hole liners retain much of the original hardening color and show little evidence of use. One of the gold breech poincon is a replacement. Extremely fine locks show little use and feather springs retain traces of the original fire blue from being “drawn” after tempering. Stock shows lots of minor handling marks but retains virtually all of the original varnish. Original ramrod. Overall in beautiful , little used, condition retaining a fair amount of original finish throughout and in superb mechanical condition. Extremely fast ignition comparable in lock time to the best British maker’s of the day. This gun (each barrel) will still place 37% of a 1 oz. load of #6 shot on a 22”x 32” sheet of paper at 43 yds. using 2 ¼ drams of Goex fffg powder (1100 ft/sec). Compare that performance with your favorite modern sporting gun ….. you might be surprised at the results! These late British flintlock-era double guns are quite rare in this condition and you would be hard pressed to find a better example. Price: POR

What a double rifle: A Holland & Holland 500/465 Nitro sidelock…

Holland & Holland .500/.465 Nitro SxS double rifle
Holland & Holland .500/.465 Nitro SxS double rifle

How would you spend $75,000? On a BMW 6-series, a year-and-a-half of fancy college for your kid, or on this  Holland & Holland .500/.465 Nitro SxS double rifle — one of the nicest DRs I’ve seen in a long time.

Unlike your standard H&H Royal rifle, this one has a slightly rounded bar (nice is you ever carry it there) and a blued action with minimal engraving. The blued action is gorgeous to the eye. But to the gunmakers, I’m sure it was pain in the ass. On a finish like that, the tiniest screw-up stands out like fresh blood trail on snow.

Holland & Holland .500/.465 Nitro SxS double rifle
Holland & Holland .500/.465 Nitro SxS double rifle

Size and performance wise, the .500/.465 Nitro Express pushes a 440 grain bullet @ 2,150 ft/s and generates a tooth-rattling 4,930 ft·lbs of force. That’s a bit less than a .470 Nitro Express (500 grs @ 2,150 Ft/s, generating 5,140 ft lbs of force), but more than enough to clobber all but the biggest, most POd animal (and a lot more than a .30-06 — about 2,850 ft lbs).

Holland & Holland .500/.465 Nitro SxS double rifle: 26″ Whitworth chopperlump barrels, quarter rib, one standing, two folding sights.  Front sight with folding moon.  An unusual Holland described in the ledger as a “best-quality hammerless ejector cordite express rifle”.  Border engraved hand-detachable action with a blacked finish throughout.  Fitted with the Holland detachable mounts, the scope is marked British made W. Ottway & Co. Ealing London.  The rifle went back to Holland & Holland in 1951 for regulation of sights and scope.  Appears to have seen little use since that time.  Stock of densely grained, well-figured dark walnut measures 14-1/4″ over a leather pad.  Tight on the face, the bores are perfect.  Weighs 11 lbs, 12 oz with the scope.  Cased.  A fabulous rifle for your next safari!

A super rare Holland & Holland Royal OU shotgun…

Holland & Holland - Royal Hammerless Ejector O/U - 12 ga: Price: $26,500.00
Holland & Holland – Royal Hammerless Ejector O/U – 12 ga: Price: $26,500.00

Back in the early 1900s,  a new kind of shotgun appeared in British. It was the hammerless OU, probably Merkel’s “Bock” over unders. Even though stack-barrel guns had been around for centuries, the German design was unique, and it’s inventiveness inspired several London makers to come up with OUs of their own.

Boss & Co’s John Robertson was one of the first with his OU patent of 1909. James Woodward & Sons locked down their design in 1913. Not wanting to be outdone, other makers followed, including Holland & Holland.

Holland & Holland – Royal Hammerless Ejector O/U – 12 ga: Price: $26,500.00

The 12 gauge shotgun you see here is a Holland & Holland Royal built on the company’s first OU design. Patented in 1914, this model was made into the 1930s. But with its deep action and complex design, it flopped. According to author Donald Dallas, the company built just 14 of them (including this incredible double rifle, SN 28482).

After scrapping this model, Holland & Holland made another run at OUs in the ’50s with a second design. It failed. Then in the ’80s the company introduced their current Royal OU (a design developed by W.W. Greener gunmakers Richard Tandy and David Dryhurst).

RARE EARLY HOLLAND & HOLLAND ROYAL HAMMERLESS SIDELOCK TOP-LEVER DOUBLE RIFLE
RARE EARLY HOLLAND & HOLLAND ROYAL HAMMERLESS SIDELOCK TOP-LEVER DOUBLE RIFLE

The Holland & Holland Royal is one of the most iconic doubles every made. Introduced in 1885, the Royal’s design was based on a 1883 patent filed by Henry Holland and John Robertson. Throughout the 1880s, the Royal’s look & design was tweaked and refined until it evolved into the kind of gun we see here.

This Royal, coming up in James D. Julia’s Fall sale, was finished in 1894. At that time, the shooting world was transitioning from black powders to smokeless powders, and rifle makers were starting to introduced new “nitro express” loads to replace their black-powder express (BPE) cartridges.

The .450 BPE  3 1/4″ was one of the most popular cartridges of the black-powder era, and today it’s still a great round for anything you can hunt in North America. Because the 450BPE generates far less energy than the .450 Nitro Express, guns made for .450 BPE tend to be on the light side for double rifles. They ‘re also tend to be much more comfortable to shoot.

New Bond Street, London.” and “Winners of All the “Field” Rifle Trials, London.” Bbl flats are stamped with London black powder proofs for 450 express. Bottoms of bbls are stamped with SN. H&H Royal sidelock action with top tang extending over comb, features automatic safety with “SAFE and BOLTED” inlaid in gold. Action also has gold band tumbler end cocking indicators and dbl triggers. Action is engraved in early Holland “Royal” style with near full coverage well cut, varying sized, shaded scroll, surrounding “Holland & Holland” within broad scroll bordered device on front portion of each lockplate.

W.W. Greener, G 60 Royal, Boxlock Model, Self-Opener, Ejector, 12 gauge, 30”  2 ¾” 99%This is the famous Facile Princeps action, designed in 1998, and touted as, pound for pound, the strongest action ever produced.  This Royal was built in 1914. Its condition is 100% original and most likely only taken out for a shoot just a couple of times, stored all these years in some fine gun rack as can be seen by its nearly mint condition. The Royal model came in both sidelock and best boxlock versions, and is described as a Best Self-acting or Unique ejector with customer-ordered engraving which could be ordered with fine scroll or deeply carved relief or game scenes (depending on customer choice), with a gold crown on the top lever.  For pairs, the gold crown was replaced with gold numbers, 1 and 2, as noted in Graham Greener’s book, The Greener Story, page 110.  This specimen is a #2 of a pair, serial number 64144, and you can see that its owner chose elegant game scenes of dogs, birds, and a rabbit surrounded by extremely fine scroll work.  True to all Royal models, the fences are arcaded and the strength of the Facile Princeps action is enhanced by its bolstered receiver. All Royals were fitted with the best wood available. Barrels are original with mirror bores.  Right bore measures .732” with .040 choke (Full) and left bore is .733” with .040 choke (Full).  Proved for 1 ¼ oz. Nitro. The automatic ejectors are well-timed, manual safety and double triggers. Price: $9,750.
