I bought my Boswell through Champlins one of the most reputable dealers in the country. Bores were nearly perfect which is unusual due to the use cordite, it was either seldom shot or cleaned very well in the old days. It is very tight on face and the lever is far to the right. Triggers are not quite as crisp as I like but not bad.
It has functioned perfectly to date although I have only fired about 150 rounds through it since buying it. Most of the shooting has been regulation/velocity testing with different bullets and loads. I also performed penetration testing. Before elephant hunting with it I will run another 250 rounds or so through it.
I offer plenty of humor for the staff on safari, but hopefully never from my lack of knowledge of firearms, that sort of thing can get you killed.
