Purdey Best 16 Bore SxS Shotgun CASED ***REDUCED PRICE***
SELF OPENING, RARE, CASED, ANTIQUE
General Specs: Purdey, Year 1894, 16 Gauge, 6lbs 2oz, Side by Side, Cased
Serial Number: 14866
Purdey s x s shotguns are considered to be the finest vintage doubles ever produced. With the Beesley self-opening action, meticulous hand fitting of metal and wood, the Purdey is the zenith of the London gun trade. Here we have a rare 16b BUILT IN 1894, FULLY DOCUMENTED BY PURDEY OF LONDON WITH A FACTORY LETTER. This gun, sn14866 was built in 1894 and rebarreled by Purdey with nitro proofed steel barrels. I was informed by Purdey that less than 8% of their guns were produced in 16 gauge and those in the know realize the 16 gauge is the best patterning small bore made. Weighing just 6lbs. 2oz. it carries like a twenty and hits like a 12! What a fine antique London Best for your shooting needs and investment opportunity. Being offered at a very attractive price and still in remarkable condition, this is a gun you can carry with pride, and it comes in a factory motor case fitted to the gun. This gun qualifies as an antique, being made in 1894, and as such can be shipped directly to any address in the U.S. that you specify. Perfect for American style upland hunting and sporting clays, a fine Purdey side by side will command attention from even the most astute collector/shooter anywhere in the world.
