A Very Nice Sidelock and a Very Nice Boxlock. 2 Used Game Guns at Westley Richards.

The lesser known makers always represent great value, especially when built in a good period and in great condition. This Phillipson & Nephew 12g Sidelock is one such gun. Phillipson & Nephew have been supplying actions to English gun trade for over 100 years and continue to this day supplying Boss & Co., McKay Brown, Greener and William & Son to name but a few. Although primarily gun action machinists they also produced a very small quantity of finished guns, supposedly for good clients or people they knew.

Phillipson 12gauge-22553

This is a very nicely made sidelock game gun, attractively priced, attractively engraved and retaining much of the original colour. With its 30" barrels and very attractive stock it makes a lot of sense if you are considering a new gun, over the rebranded continental guns supplied by many English makers now.

    So was the sidelock gun fully produced in-house at P&N? Or did they send it around to experts for the different work types (ie stocking)?

      I am sure they used a trade stocker but the rest in house no doubt.
