John Dickson & Son Boxlock, made in 1931

12 Gauge, A & D Non-ejector, side-by-side shotgun

The gun is in good condition inside and out with partial scroll engraving and 'Dickson & Son' engraved in banners on the side of the action. The barrels measure as the day they were re-proved, the bores are unmarked inside and out. The gun is fitted with a figured stock which conforms to the same length as it did in 1931.

In order to prepare the gun for sale we have given it a full service, strip and clean, the stock and fore-end wood has been sympathetically cleaned and re-oiled, all the chequering has been cleaned out, the barrels and furniture re-blacked and pins re-coloured. The gun barrels also benefit from having its ribs stripped and relaid at great expense.  

This particular gun was one of three Anson & Deeley non-ejector guns ordered in the spring of 1931 by a member of the Usher Brewing Family of Edinburgh. A number of Dickson best Round-Actions and sidelocks were already in use by the Usher family so we can only speculate that these plain short-stocked guns were for younger members of the family to use.
