Charles Boswell 12 Bore original Live pigeon gun Ejector.

This is the earliest example of a pigeon gun we have seen with all the modern attributes that we come to expect. Fortunately  the gun was in great shape when it arrived. The Damascus barrels are very sound and clean with a minimum wall of Right .027"  Left .031” The chokes are both 1/2. The top rib is a 7/16” flat filecut (typical pigeon). Nitro proofed 2 3/4”  18.7 Bores. The small scroll engraved action has a third grip and sideclips as you would expect. The 14 3/4” pistolgrip stock is in very good condition with heel and toe pieces and pistol cap. The forend is a beautiful early beavertail.
As we loved the gun so much we decided to convert to ejector , the preferable non self cocking type  to keep the romance of recocking the hammers . The gun weight is 8lb.

The work to be completed is in the finishing, regulate the ejectors , rebrown barrels and colour case harden the action. completion can be expected in 6 to 9 months.

The case it came in was not correct and we have cased it in an original Charles Boswell hammer gun case from the period .
