#GP1915, Vouzelaud (Brou, France), A 12 Bore Bar Action Sidelock Ejector with 30" Chopper Lump barrels at .724 .004 & .012" (Skt.I & Skt.II), Original 2 3/4", Original chokes, Wall thickness on the right barrel at .034" & .036" on the left, Hidden third bite, Bushed strikers, Standard concave rib, Double triggers with the front trigger articulated, Splinter forend with an Anson release, Straight hand stock at 14 9/16 x 1 1/4 x 2 1/16" over a 3/4" leather pad with plugs for removal, Cast-Off for the right hand, 7 lbs., Very nice walnut with deep black & brown contrast, Border engraving on a coin finished frame with a nicely engraved waterfowl engraved on the bottom of the frame, The overall barrel blue remains at 98%, The coin finish on the frame at 99%, The buttstock and forend remain at 98%, The checkering is at 100%, The barrels inside and out remain as new, The whole is cased in the makers metal cornered leather trunk with the correct trade labels. This is a nice sidelock gun with 30" barrels, 7 lbs., excellent condition, nice wood and a fair price for a nice sidelock piece. This gun has all the trappings of being made in Belgium for Vouzelaud. This piece is not a boxlock with false sideplates but a true bar action sidelock with nice lockwork and very nice internal inletting that is as sound as the day it was cut. This is a nice sidelock for the money. ///////////////// //////////////////// Vouzelaud was established in France in 1888. It was reported in 1983 that Vouzelaud was Purdey's agent in France. They are established in Brou, France about 70 miles southwest of Paris and have remained there since 1888. The firm was passed down generation to generation and still operates to this very day. Their catalog is quite impressive with a lot of guns, their own brand of cartridges; clothing and they have their own shooting school. Several well-known American gun writers have flat stated that Vouzelaud only makes boxlock guns along with many that have false sideplates and look exactly like a sidelock. I am sure all of that is true but this gun, #GP1915, is absolutely a sidelock gun hence I am almost positive it was made in Belgium from an order at Vouzelaud and sold by them with their name on it.
