This Boss was built between the wars and is one of only 56 ever made as a true self opener. Having excellent original wall thickness and dimensions this fine Boss correctly and elegantly represents what is considered the paragon of British gun making, the Boss BEST sidelock ejector. This Boss comes in a correct VC (stands for Very Compact) motor case and is truly ready for the field and to be appreciated by its new owner.

Note that with a single trigger the rule of thumb is one can subtract 1/2" from the LOP used for a person normally using double triggers. In this case this gun would fit a shooter perfectly that likes a 14 5/8" LOP. Keep in mind also we can fit a highest quality leather covered pad for only $300.00 and about ten days time. This could get the LOP for someone who needs up to near 15 1/2".
