Owner says 'Lets move this beautiful pair" so we have reduced the price on this beautiful pair by $35,000 to $149,999!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We are featuring a stunning pair of Holland & Holland Royal Side-by-Side shotguns in the maker's leather and oak double case. These were purchased new by the owner from the H&H NYC store on August 2, 2001. You can see from the original hang tag that the guns were priced at $165,000 at that time. The owner (deceased) is a former major oil company executive who was a serious collector of fine guns.
Here is what Holland & Holland say about the Royal:
"Of all the shotguns and rifles made by Holland & Holland, it is the Royal for which the company is perhaps best known. Striking a perfect balance between elegance and design, the Holland Royal side-by-side shotgun is the classic London Best Gun.
The epitome of reliability, the traditional 'Royal' side-by-side enjoys a distinct advantage in the field. The H&H self opening mechanism, widely copied by other gun makers, greatly assists with rapid loading. It is often lighter in weight than other designs and with its prized balance and handling properties, is more responsive to the jinks and turns of the driven bird.
The supremely elegant and slim profile enhances the weapon's aesthetic qualities. In practical terms, it is comfortable both in the hands and when broken accross the arm. It is therefore no surprise to learn that the 'Royal' side-by-side has been the preferred choice of serious game shooters for many generations. From GBP 77,500 excluding VAT". There you have it in their own words.
These firearms are "as new" and show no signs of being fired or carried. There are no handling marks on the wood. No marks on the metal. No signs of ever having been out of the case. The case has a few scratches/scars on the outside from 15 years of home storage. The accessories include two sets of H&H snap caps as well as an oil bottle, spare parts and cleaning brushes.
These guns are for the serious collector and/or the discriminating sportsman. There is perhaps no higher ranking in the world of modern firearms than a pair of Holland Royals. We have them priced at approximately $100,000 below current replacement and, of course, they are available now with no 3 year wait. The dimensions are very attractive and modern. Please contact Stewart at 704-981-2166 if you are a serious buyer and have any questions. Or, email at StewartNewLondonArms.
Payment for this pair will need to be certified funds. We will need to discuss shipment/delivery depending on the location of the buyer. New London Arms is a fine arms dealer located in Charlotte NC. Please see our newlondonarms for more information.
