Watson Bros .410"
A rare .410" boxlock ejector , totally restored in our factory. We acquired this beautiful little 26" barrelled boxlock (unusually with sideclips) some 2 years ago and decided that this was such a beautiful mechanical piece it would be nice to lose its plain Jane look and enhance it as much as we could.
Starting off with a new 15 1/2" pistol gripped stock using deluxe wood inc a new forend. We then carved the whole gun with Oak leaves including the heavily engraved breechends of the barrels. After a complete mechanical overhaul, we complimented this beauty with the restoration of its original brass cornered leather case with a complete refit including a new lining and fittings for oil bottle and snap caps, even its original wiping rod got spoilt with a new leather sleeve. No expense spared..
All for the sum of £16,950
