Daniel Fraser, made in 1896

12 Gauge, A & D Ejector, side-by-side shotgun


With production figures at only circa 3700 guns and rifles, finding good examples of Daniel Fraser guns is always a challenge, especially as Fraser's production was focused on rifle making. Therefore, we are very pleased to be able to offer a fine example of a Daniel Fraser boxlock gun dating from 1896. 

The action is a standard Anson & Deeley (not the complicated Fraser patent action) with intercepting sears and disc-set strikers, and covered with the classic Fraser scroll pattern. Unusually, both triggers are chequered, perhaps to provide grip in the foul Scottish weather. The barrels are spotless inside and out and still measure as the day they were re-proved.

A new stock has been recently fitted at huge expense, and is very long, which makes it ideal for someone looking for a vintage Scottish gun with a long all-wood stock which can be altered to their desire length.

To prepare the gun for sale we have given it a full service, strip and clean, re-blacked the furiture and barrels, re-oiled and polished the woodwork, and sourced a tan hide case (with key) to finish off in.
