SOLD - Pair of John Dickson and Son Round-Actions made in 1920

12 Gauge, patent triggerplate action, side-by-side shotguns

We are pleased to offer a beautiful pair of classic Round-Actions for sale. These guns were originally delivered in 1920 and so are the epitome of the Round-Action design. The guns have the Dickson trademark scroll engraving of the period which is crisp and retains some colour.

The guns have well-figured stocks which are in great condition and come in their makers trunk case in the traditional Dickson velvet green lining. Both guns have been through our workshop including re-blacking the barrels and cleaning the stocks and are in fantastic condition inside and out. Good, clean pairs of these guns are becoming very hard to come by at a reasonable price so please get in contact if these are of interest. They will not be here for long.
