SOLD - John Dickson and Son Boxlock, made in 1936

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


We are very pleased to offer this immaculate vintage boxlock ejector by John Dickson & Son that was made in 1936. The gun can best be described as 'sleeper', as the gun is virtually in 'as new' condition.  

The action has crisp scroll engraving with the 'Dickson & Son' banner on each side of the action and retains about 60% of its original colour hardening. It is fitted with a nice, straight-grained stock and overall the gun is in superb condition for its age. 

The gun benefits from having just had a full service, strip and clean and the wood has been gently cleaned and re-polished, the chequering cleaned out and the furniture re-blacked. We have also stripped and re-laid the ribs and re-blacked the barrels. The barrels are superb inside (they measure as the day they were proved) and the lock-up to the action is firm and tight.  

With a choke alteration this gun will be perfectly suitable for standard steel 2 1/2in cartridges.
