SOLD - Magnificent Kell engraved John Dickson & Son Round-Action, made in 1926

12 gauge, patent triggerplate action, side-by-side shotgun

This gun was originally delivered in 1926 to a distinguished family in Edinburgh, meaning one family ownership since new and Dickson's have been looking after the gun ever since.  

The action is engraved with the fabulous Harry Kell pattern he did for Round-Actions but with a couple of slight changes to make this gun unique amongst the ones he did, of which we estimate less than 35 Dickson guns with Kell engraving have been made.

The gun is fitted with a well-figured stock and we will be fitting new 29in chopper lump barrels with 2 3/4in chambers to give the gun a new lease of life.
