Update 29th July 2015


Welcome to my July 2015 Update.


I have been working flat out to get as much done as possible for the September show at Dover Furnace NY before Chrissy, the dogs and I head north for Isle of Mull for 3 weeks stalking, fishing, malt whisky and local beer. Some of the work has gone well, some not but then that is antique shotguns for you!


I am now committed to the ‘North American Shotgun Classic’ at the Beretta Shooting Grounds, Dover Furnace, NY on 24th-27th September. Flights, booth and accommodation are booked and I am delighted that two good friends from this side of The Pond will be coming along for the ride. Sue and Clive Cross have shared my sporting world for over 30 years and it will be fun to introduce them to the joys of the American S/S gun show.


The first two guns are completed and details unloaded.


H&H 16b 30” TIG-sleeved SL (most recent project from our Accipiter Series);



GE Lewis 16b 29” Damascus Hammergun;



Both the above are pre-1897 and nitro reproofed for 2 ¾”.


As usual I have left several guns behind in North Carolina and these include:



Watson Bros 28b Hammergun no 4606



Boss & Co 12b RUL hammergun no 2717



A spectacular FT Baker Needham patent 12b SLE, a real sleeper;




A very beautiful cased, toplever 12b SLE by Henry Atkin with ‘makers replacement steel barrels;




A Murcott 12b hammergun with 30” damascus barrels;



Full details can be found via links on the Stock Page.


Most of the guns mentioned above are nitro proofed for a minimum of 2 3/4" cartridges and all are pre-1897.


Lastly a reminder that we now have a Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Heritage-Guns/1456166597974211. Facebook is not everybody’s cup of tea but we will post photos and news there that are not relevant to our main web site pages.


Enjoy your guns and shooting wherever you are!
