Please note …
All our fine game guns have undergone an extensive programme of restoration. All barrels have been Re-London Nitro Proofed to 2 3/4" chambers. They naturally have a practical and sensible wall thickness, fine walnut stocks and forends, have a minimum LOP of 14 1/2" and have all undergone a refurbishment of their traditional oil finish and have been skillfully re-checkered. Gun specification measurements are approximate and are for guidance only.
These very special guns are the result of a long standing ambition to create a Homage to the finest Victorian Hammer Guns. Over the years I have rescued exceptional donor guns and with the help and skill of my team of the best traditional gunsmiths remade them to the very highest standard.I believe these guns are unique and the very best available.
