James Purdey sidelock 12g 29.5" barrels


Please call to purchase


A fine example of an 1897 Purdey self opening sidelock. Choked Cylinder & 1/2. 12 gauge, 29.5" barrels. Reproofed in 2010 and still measuring the same now at .740 and .738. Wall thickness is at 23 (minimum) in right and 28 (minimum) in left. So plenty of life left in this gun yet. It has been re-barrelled by the maker at some point and are awaiting information from the makers.

A slight problem is the stock is cracked at the head and the trigger tang is also snapped. However, this gun is priced based on re-stocking to the clients measurements and you will have the opportunity to select your wood. The trigger tang will be replaced and engraved to suit the original.

The gun also comes with a leather bound oak case with brass corners and Purdey trade label. This may require re-fitting depending on your stock dimensions which is not included in the price.
