Obsolete calibre 14 bore Pin Fire shotgun:


Antique obsolete 14 bore pin fire shotgun:

Now here`s a piece of history - an excellent pin fire hammer gun, dating from around 1850. Pin Fire cartridges were the first shotgun cartridge ever developed, with a a pin sticking out of the top of the barrel that was driven down into the the carttridge when fired. Suprisingly effective, they were popular for around 50 years before the introduction of the regular centerfire cartridge we know today. This ones a British made 14 bore in very good overall condition - just check out the walnut stock! Fine detailing on the action, looks like there`s been a repair to one hammer at some point but thats all. Barrels are damascuss but the spiral pattern is not prominent. Cocks and dry fires, obsolete calibre so live but no license required.

Evans of Purdey antique hammer shotgun - very high end:


Evans of Purdey antique deactivated 12 gauge hammer shotgun with dmamscuss barrels and original case:

OK, so we all want a Purdey - they are the best known, high end maker of shotguns from way back in the 1800`s, but they are epic on the price scale, and they are never deactivated because at that value, if you blow a barrel you can afford to have a new bespoke set made. Here`s the next best thing, an antique Evans of Purdey 12 gauge (William Evans worked alongside Purdey in that later half of the 1800`s before separating, still working closely with him, hence the name). This Evans Purdey was made new for a Mr A D Shuter in January 1900 (Evans and Co. still have a plush office in Pimlico and all the records survived the war, though they were bombed out) and is a 12 gauge side by side with top lever opening, walnut wood and damascuss barrels. Condition is excellent, the woodwork gleams with wax, the breachwork is excellent with "Evans form Purdey" engraved clearly on both lockplates and the barrel and the barrels are also very good with just a few minor dings. It has retained its gentlemans motor case (strap it to the back of the Bently...) and also comes with cleaning rods, leather ammo pouch and a handfull of inert shells which we popped in because it looks really cool. Price is not cheap, but live Evans Purdeys go for around £9500+, real Purdeys are at least 3 times that, so makes it a bit of a bargain really... Cocks and dry fires and comes with correct UK certificate of deactivation.
