Miroku L-II 12-bore Boxlock English Stock like Browning BSS but BETTER
Miroku L-II 12-bore Boxlock English Stock like Browning BSS but BETTER

Miroku L-II 12-bore Boxlock English Stock like Browning BSS but BETTER: For sale is a super nice Miroku L-II boxlock. This sleek 12-bore features a classic Anson and Deeley type boxlock action made popular by the Birmingham, England guntrade. Miroku is the maker of the Browning BSS and this is a cousin to that gun. Basically, its the same gun made in the same factory by the craftsman with a different name on it… But this Miroku is much better finished! This Miroku was intended for the European market and was purchased by a military man serving overseas. These European offerings are much better finished guns than the Browning versions in my opinion. This particular model looks like the classic English boxlock. The color cased action is nicely shaped and beautifully hand engraved with well-cut scroll engraving. The 28″ barrels are well struck and are choked IMP/FULL… a classic English choke combination. They’re topped with a flat rib and are balanced by a walnut stock classically configured with straight grip, splinter forend, and hand-cut checkering. The butt is finished with a silvers recoil pad. This shotgun is in great condition. The bores are clean, and barrel walls are free from dents. The stocks oil finish is still good and the stock is solid (though it does have a repaired crack from fall on a quail hunt 15 years ago. Many hundreds of rounds have been fired since that time with no issue). As you would expect, the gun functions perfectly. The lock up is rock solid, and the trigger pulls are nice and crisp. This quality gun is ready to provide a lifetime of reliable use to it new owner. Maker: Miroku, Model: L-II, Barrels: 28″, Chokes: IMP/FULL, Weight: 6lbs 12oz, DAC: 1 3/8″, DAH: 2 5/16″, LOP: 14 3/8″ over silvers pad, Cast: appears to be neutral. Price: $1,950

Further Notes: Mike Louca is the foremost Barrel Smith, extant.  Watson Brothers was purchased, the name, from Atkin, Grant, and Lang about 1988 when Mike was still working at Purdey as the lead barrel maker. Watson Brothers is the last gunmaker owned English Gun builder in England. Watson Brothers truly carries on the British Bespoke Gunmaking tradition – this gun is built on a modified Beesley Action, the same action on which the Purdey SXS is built.  The innovation is beyond cool.  He has changed the ejectors, massive improvement, triggers, and barrels.  One could easily argue that this is the finest English gun made today.

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

Engraved Ithaca 3E Flues with 30 Inch Chain Damascus Barrels Made 1919

Engraved Ithaca 3E Flues with 30 Inch Chain Damascus Barrels Made 1919:
Guns by Sally-always the best for less. We are so proud to offer this fine example the classic American double made in Ithaca, New York. The Ithaca name has a very loyal following, and this example can show us why. This is the 3E grade, moving up the grade scale enough for some gorgeous walnut, truly unique game scene engraving, just as unique checkering patterns, and the icing on the cake is that she is fitted with 30 inch Chain Damascus barrels. This is a very striking firearm, and can get your attention from across the room. Even the top rib stands out, with its deep and distinctive machined matting. Made in the year of our Lord 1919, it does not look like it is 103 years old. The original blue is mostly strong, with some thinning at carry points and near the muzzle. The receiver bears sharp, high contrast engraving set against generous amounts of case color. The checkering is very good, and the Damascus pattern is just as bold as the rest of the gun. From the large ivory bead to the original Ithaca butt plate, this shotgun screams high grade American double. The lever resides to the right of center, ejectors toss the empties, and she is choked old school, full and full. Built for the long run, she weighs in at just under 7 1/2 pounds. Drops are 1 5/8 and 2 3/4 inches, with an LOP of 14 inches. Chambers are 2 3/4 inches, and RST loads can allow this beauty to keep knocking down birds for years to come. This fine double represents a true bargain in this category. While you can spend many times this amount for a high grade double, they won’t get any more attention in front of your safe than this Fluesy. If you have been looking for the right classic Ithaca to collect, for investment, or for a classy hunt, then look no further. Price: $2800

Pedro Arrizabalaga 12 gauge, Two-barrel set, Sidelock ejector, Regal Sabel, imported to the UK by Gunmark, Ltd in 1976

Pedro Arrizabalaga 12 gauge, Two-barrel set, Sidelock ejector, Regal Sabel, imported to the UK by Gunmark, Ltd in 1976: This gun was made in 1976 by Pedro Arrizabalaga and imported to the U.K. by Gunmark, Ltd. Arrizabalaga is known throughout the world as “The Purdy of Spain”, one of the finest manufacturers of London Best-Style doubles. This two-barrel set began it’s life as a “composed” pair, but over the course of 45 years, gun #2 lost its locks and had a broken stock. I had my gunsmith fit the barrels from gun #2 to the action of gun #1. The chokes of both barrels are improved and modified, but one set can be opened up for different hunting situations. Both sets of barrels have mirror bores, but the #2 set has a more highly polished exterior. The action retains most of its color case hardening. There are minor handling marks on the exterior of both barrel sets. Both sets of barrels ring like bells and shoot well on the skeet range and on pheasants. The wood is above average, showing some fiddleback and smoke and honey contrast. The stock shows handling marks from field use. It has an articulated front trigger, hand-detachable locks and well-timed ejectors.  The trigger pulls are 4# and 3-1/4#. The gun is well-balanced (just ahead of the hinge pin), is quick to the shoulder, and swings like a dream. I bought a new canvas and leather two-barrel gun case to use as my own, but I have no other two-barrel sets in my collection. I even made a custom insert to hold the action from gun #2, which I am including. Arrizabalaga is no longer in business, so this is your chance to own a gun from one of the best manufacturers in Spain, at a fair price. Price: $3950.

BEST of the bests: Pair of 12g Boss SxSs, incredible condition…

Boss & Co. Sidelock Pair 12ga/29"
Boss & Co. Sidelock Pair 12ga/29″

“Where are all the great guns?” That’s what some friends of mine have been saying lately. While good guns are always coming on the market, truly great ones have been scarce — until today.

Boss & Co. Sidelock Pair 12ga/29"
Boss & Co. Sidelock Pair 12ga/29″

This pair of 12 gauge Boss & Co sidelock side-by-side shotguns popped up on Gunsinternational.com this AM. They’re as good as vintage British shotguns get.

Boss & Co. Sidelock Pair 12ga/29"
Boss & Co. Sidelock Pair 12ga/29″

In their day, these SxSs were the pinnacle of gunmaking, and two of the most expensive shotguns in the world. Today, they’re rare, and still cost a fortune. From what I can see, no one has messed them up by trying to refresh or restore them.

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.

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

I love the gun’s gigantic, boulder-size fences and genuine wear. It looks very original and like it hasn’t been messed with it all.

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

LC SMITH 8 GAUGE SXS NO.2 Grade, 32″ barrels, very RARE and very good: LC Smith 8 ga. SXS No 2 Grade s/n 92271 is as described above in very good original condition. And if there were only 2 engraved with a woodcock on the RH side plate then this is one of them. Barrels show nice full covereage damascus pattern with nice brown patina, no dents and very nice shiny bores. Receiver with side plates still showing 20% of faint case colors and nice brown patina. Beautiful fine scroll engraving with the Quail encircled on the left side and the rare woodcock on the right side. Top lever is still well to the right with nice crisp tight action and crisp triggers.Horn pistol grip cap and dogs head inlay in the forend. On the toe of the buttstock has only a thin chip/splinter broken off – only approximately 1/4″ thick, but no cracks and only a couple of very light handling dings to the wood furniture. Gun is of original dimensions the stock nor barrels have been shortened or cut. Very nice for the age.
