Don’t know seller says guns are pre war and cock with the top lever? Sounds old to me with that type of cocking mechanism?

Before they introduced fluid steel barrels Whitworth made pairs of barrels from one piece of steel.

Here is a picture of a very early E.C. Green gun using a set, sold at Bonhamsin 1999.

Longthorne now do much the same, hopefully with a much lower rate of rejection.

To be sure with the Steyr guns you need a picture of the muzzles.

Get a pic of the knuckle. Almost all >>hammerless<< platforms utilized the drop of the weight of the tubeset to cock the action thru lever-bars referred to as >>cocking dogs<<.

Possibly Mr. Neuberger will chime in on a bit more about the OEWG( Oesterreichische Waffengesellschaft) ......

Or Elaine Stewart:


>>......, just to clarify, our barrels are monolithic from one single piece (not monoblock). We machine the entire barrel set from one block of steel. We have patents on this. Whitworth also developed a method of making barrels from a solid block and patented it but our method and end result is different.
Boxall and Edmiston manufactured their barrels using conventional methods, but sadly no longer in business.<<

I had a pre model 11 Remington trap gun with a 1 piece barrel and vent rib and was impressed, never expected this with a double! Wow

Found the Galand, a pair that I won’t be buying without selling a truck, a pretty new truck.

I will definitely pay more attention to early guns described as monoblock especially Austrian, French and Belgium offerings. I always thought of robust, pieper or those berettas when that was mentioned before.

On the TGS outdoors YouTube platform they have just released a fascinating video on the making and proofing of a Longthorne 12 bore over and under with the one piece barrels machined from a bar of titanium!
