J. Purdey & Sons 12g Over/Under Two Barrel Set | WR Used Guns

J. Purdey & Sons 12g Over/Under Two Barrel Set

Serial Number 29427



J. Purdey & Sons 12g Extra Finish Round Body Two Barrel Set Over/Under Game Gun.

Ordered new in the early 1990’s by my client’s father, this gun was made for versatility. 
Built on Purdey’s improved Woodward SLE o/u action with a rounded bar and fitted with gilded lock and ejector work, automatic safety and single non-selective trigger. The Extra finish gun has special order bold scroll engraving and a color hardened action with gold lined cocking indictors. The maker’s name is inlaid in gold, in old English script, on the bottom of the action and each lock plate. The word “SAFE” and the serial number are also inlaid in gold in the same style letters. 
The gun was ordered as a two-barrel set, each one with a file cut solid rib and original 3” chambers (76mm London Proofs 1994). The 26” barrels are choked Cylinder and Cylinder. The 28” barrels are choked Skeet (.005) and 3/8 or Light Mod. (.015”). 
The gun has a straight hand stock with a 15” LOP over a .60” leather pad and a slim shaped forend. The stock and forend are nicely figured and finely checkered and the gold stock oval shows the original owner’s initials: “C.D.O JR”. 
The gun is cased in the original two-barrel motor case with canvas cover and red baize interior. The gun has been shot but has been well cared for. Metal remains excellent and wood only shows a few handling marks. Overall the gun is in very good shape.
