Halifax this one? Well I have had the gun for some fifty plus years now, so it will be a death do us part thing and a problem for my sons.







The only lessons in my life I truly did learn from where the ones I paid for!

Damascus,

That is a beautiful looking gun (and a new or refurbished case too). I hope you take it out and shoot it on occasion. The checkering looks sharp. Did you do some stock work on The old Purdey?

Personally, I love hammer guns and I have owned several English specimens over the years. In fact I just took my old H & H, circa 1876, out to my club to pattern it. I am taking it partridge shooting this coming season - a first. I was surprised at how good and consistent the patterns were with a gun with virtually no choke constrictions.

I must have watched that film three times over the years. Wonderful film with an excellent screen play and casting. As I recall, that was James Mason's last film.

I'll PM you, if you don't mind.

Michael

Great thread, very informative. Thanks for sharing Damascus.

I came across a Webley & Scott catalogue dated to 1953 which shows and describes the three grades of the model 700. See attached.

Here's a 'Charles Dawson' 12 bore BLE, proofed in 1962. I've learned that Charles was better known as Ken Dawson, and he worked as a stocker and finisher at 10/11 St Mary's Row in Birmingham.

I think the gun was built on a Webley action, and engraved by Walter Howe.

If anyone can confirm this or has observations or comments, I'd be grateful.

Fantastic thread about this historic gun house! I'm a happy owner of a 20 ga W&C Scott&Son, circa 1898. A shotgun made expressly for Luis Vives & Cía, Eduardo Schilling father-in-law. With 26' ejection barrels is a wonderfull gun for walking hunting with my dogs. One of my prefer guns!

I don't know the model. Has the original stock and another longer made for me.

It is good to bring this subject to life again. The Model 700 seems to get much respect. From reading the previous pages I think the Model 700 in 3" 20 gauge configuration must be relatively rare.
