Superb Charles Boswell 410ga O/U Pinless sidelock - Truly a bespoke gun in every regard! Long barrels with superb dimensions!
This gun made in 2007, after Chris Batha obtained the rights to the Charles Boswell name in 2004, to make bespoke best quality guns under this name, with prices starting at $85,000.00. This beautifully filed, fitted, and finished creation of functional art by many Purdey and Holland trained gunmakers (Gerry Swanson, finisher) would certainly be well in excess of that number. This gun has 30 - 1/4" demi bloc barrels fitted with solid matted rib. Left side of top barrel is engraved "Charles Boswell London." Breech end of top barrel and ejector bolsters are scroll engraved. Flat of bottom barrel is stamped with 2007 London nitro proofs for 3" chambers. Serial number is engraved on bottom barrel. Beautifully sculpted small sized over/under action fitted with pinless sidelocks is somewhat rounded with nicely filed beads. Action features non-automatic safety and gold plated non-selective single trigger and is engraved with near full coverage well cut rose and scroll by noted ex-Purdey engraver Dave Tallet. (Signature on trigger plate) "Charles Boswell" is in gold diagonally across front portions of lockplates, and also in arched banner on bottom of action over "London". Blued single beaded small bow trigger guard with matching scroll has serial number in gold on tang. Well marbled and figured European walnut straight grip buttstock with checkered wood butt with engraved steel heel and toe plates. Classic drop points are behind lockplates, and well cut semi flat top point pattern checkering is at grip. A silver oval engraved "CW" is on toe line. Matching slim one piece ejector forend has Anson type release.
Gun is housed in a best quality oak and brown leather case by Ian Tomlin, has gold canvas brown leather trimmed outer cover. Case is lined in burgundy cloth and has Boswell paper label in lid. Tops of case partitions are also of oak, and case contains Boswell marked square oil bottle and snap caps. Two piece cleaning rod is still in its original wrapper. Cleaning brushes are in black leather case.
WIth dove season coming, this gun is sure to impress. The quality of the fit and finish on this gun cannot be overstated. It is superb in every way. This gun is priced at $47,500 plus shipping to your FFL. Please dont hesitate to contact me at (704) 280-2382 or via PM on this site with any questions or reasonable offers.
