SOLD - John Dickson & Son Boxlock, made in 1939

12 gauge, A & D Ejector, side-by-side shotgun


We are very pleased to offer this Dickson boxlock that has been meticulously refurbished at great expense, including the fitting of a beautiful new long stock and the re-colour hardening of the action. The gun has neatly sleeved barrels which measure as they were proved with solid wall thicknesses ensuring the gun has many years of use in front of it.

This gun will be perfectly suitable for standard steel cartridges.

The gun was delivered in 1939 and it is interesting to speculate what it did during the war years that followed.
