SOLD - Pair of John Dickson and Son Round-Actions made in 1950

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

Specification

We are very pleased to offer this fabulous pair of Round-Action guns that were built in 1950.

The actions have the fine bouquet and scroll engraving from the period and retain much hardening colour. New long highly figured stocks and fore-ends were fitted in 2013 and Dickson's also fitted a set of replacement barrels to the No. 2  gun (which still measure as new). 

We have looked after these guns for many years for the current owner and so to prepare the guns for sale we have only had to give them a full service and re-black the barrels and furniture.
