BIW Purdey 9513 appeared as an action, stock & forend in Gavin's April 21 sale, Lot # 218 and sold for 2,600 sterling against an estimate of 700-900. It appeared again last week as a complete gun with 30" original damascus barrels, numbers matched, re-proofed and rejointed, as a 30" hammer gun at Mackinlay's in Scotland, asking price 10,500 sterling. With Plenty of barrel thickness left and some nice case color, it sold fairly quickly. The investor must have sweated a bit as the gun went through proof, but when it emerged unscathed, he knew he would turn a profit, which was tidy indeed!

I was under the impression the barrels needed to be cut in some fashion te render them unusable to sell an action, stock, forend. Wonder how this worked out...

you can arrange for them to be sent to a craftsman to be prepped for reproof but you cannot take possession of an out of proof gun as a layman.

How do they decide who is qualified ? I know some guys who do exceptional work who don't consider themself a gun smith or builder

Per this line we were told that once the auction house decides it's not worth fixing the barrels..that's it...they'll be cut if you want them. The buyer doesn't even have the choice? That was not so?

You have to work with someone willing to submit it for re-proof. When I was the Teague rep we would collect out of proof guns, do the work and submit them for re-proof then export to the States.

You can have a barrel man collect your out of proof gun and see if it will pass for you, most are not worth the gamble. The Purdey was.

Is there a reproof for black powder only or all get nitro proof?

If it was originally Proofed for black powder then it can go for re-proof for black but once submitted for nitro it then has to go for nitro from then on. Lagopus.....
