I recently received this gun from a friend. Looking at it is similar to opening the back of a nice pocket watch and looking inside.

Sometimes they were sold with spare locks, probably so you didn’t have to work so hard by taking it apart to enjoy the view.

Best,

Ted, I remember seeing these guns with spare locks. Never had an opportunity to afford one at the time. Also, saw a very nice one with the locks missing. Taking the locks out is done in less than a minute with no tools.

I would think fairly reliable, stout parts, simple v spring.

It was sort of a joke, Daryl, goes along with the Purdey guy not caring how hard his gun was to close, as he didn’t close it.

Best,
Ted

I love drop locks and trigger plate actions.

Ted, I thought you were kidding, but some don’t know about these things. As I recall, most of the guns I have seen with spare locks were double rifles. They also used the droplock design in their Ovundo over/under.

I hope you have as much fun with that gun as I did Daryl! It’s a great gun that isn’t so nice you feel bad about taking it hunting.

It is identical to my Droplock built in 1911. Mine is missing the barrels. The price quoted to rebarrel it is more than a decent new car. So I keep it as a barrel-less curio.
