Here we have for sale a used pair of A.A.Brown & Sons Supreme de Luxe 12 bore sidelocks with double triggers. They have 26″ barrels with Churchill style checkered top ribs that still measure as proofed and have been very little used.
The engraving is a cutaway scroll with game scene windows on the underside by Walter Howe. The stocks are quite short at 14 3/16″, but have a figure and colour that would suit a horn extension should they prove to be undersized.
They come in a book style leather motor case made by Bryant’s of London with an outer cover allowing them to be transported really rather easily as it is very compact. This is a fantastic opportunity to acquire a very fine pair of best English sidelocks in almost new condition at an exceptional price. Please find some picture, the full specification and a video below.
