This handsome James McCririck & Sons back action bar lock was made in the 1890’s and shows all the hallmarks of a “Best Gun”: Highly engraved in Best Bouquet & Scroll, disc set strikers, well struck original 30” nitro steel barrels, Purdey hidden third fastener, H&H style interceptor sears, bolstered forearm, and anti-friction rollers on the main springs, Serial number is 2131, the gun weighs 6lb 13oz and shows residual case coloring. McCririck was a small, high quality gunmaker located in Ayr, Scotland known for his handsome well made doubles. It was professionally refurbished in the UK in 2012 at which time the chambers were reproofed in London for 2-3/4” shotshells. *** The original 30” nitro steel ejector barrels are topped by a concave game style rib. The rib is inscribed "J. McCririck & Sons Ayr". London re-proofed for 2-3/4” cartridges in 2012. Bluing is in very good condition. Bores are shiny.
