DBHE 12b Holland & Holland Badminton side by side ejector shotgun for sale
We are delighted to offer an “old friend” for sale on commission basis.
This delightful Holland & Holland Badminton 12b shotgun was made circa 1900.
In 2003 we were commissioned to restock the stock for our client to use for high bird days. Using high grade traditional style Turkish walnut, the gun was restocked by ourselves with a round ended semi pistol grip, 15″ stock length in wood and a Silver stock oval. The gun was at this time altered to have fitted short flush Teague multi chokes and reproofed for 2 3/4″ – 70mm cartridges. The forend remains original with undersnap catch.
The 30″ original Dovetail barrels were reproofed in Birmingham, and still measure the new proof size of 18.6mm / 18.7mm. With minimum wall thickness of 0.024` in the left barrel, this gun would truly serve well for many years to follow.
Weighing 6lb 12oz the gun is beautifully balanced, mechanically perfect and recently serviced. Presented in its makers single flat case – this gun is ready for any quarry…
The gun served our client well until recent years where his style of shooting changed, being sold to another client of ours who has not had the opportunity to use the gun. Now being returned to us to find it a new caring home.
