Offering for sale my antique pre-1898 WR 12ga. This shotgun has newer sleeved barrels with no legible lettering on the rib. It has working ejectors and is chambered for 2 3/4” shells. It shoots delightfully with 1oz light target loads.

It has a wood stock extension that crawls it into a 15.75” LOP, could be easily removed for a rubber pad. 28” barrels choked mod/skeet. 1 5/8” on the comb and 2” on the heel.
The bores are good as well as the mechanicals. The photos tell the tale of furniture condition. No notable damage, just 130 years of field use. Excellent field gun and as cheap as a good WR gets.
I have history on this site, gunsinternational, and gunbroker.

This antique ships FREE to your door for $1400

About Lon's Elephant hunts w/Tokoloshe? I hear Lon is battling cancer? What is his long term prognosis? I am already booked to hunt Africa in 2024 2025. Might consider 2026 for another African hunt. I want to hunt a more wild open region devoid of civilization. Concern is the risk that I book f/2026 then find poor Lon has passed on? Does Lon have any assistance to carry on the business in his absence?

Is your 22HP still available? If so have the original case?

Hi Ian, I'm contemplating my first outing, leaving UK via Dubai to Africa, taking rifles as you did.

I presume it went okay for you, would you have done anything differently? Cheers, Richard East Sussex

Are you still looking for a 375 H&H?
