Very Late and High Quality Westley Richards Percussion Side-by-Side Shotgun, #4046. The 27.5'' 12 bore browned twist steel barrels are marked on the concave rib ''Westley Richards, 170 New Bond St., London''. Locks are marked ''Westley Richards'', with English scroll engraving over buttplate tang, receiver, locks, hammers, triggerguard and pineapple decorations. There is also an interesting grip safety that prevents trigger movement unless depressed. The hooked breech has platinum blow-out plugs, and the ebony ramrod has brass ends and appears original. Barrels are proofed with 1868 Birmingham black powder proofmarks, with high-figure English walnut stock. Mfg'd ca. 1870, not long before the introduction of breech-loading double guns. Condition is antique excellent showing some use but no abuse. Trigger and locks function perfectly; bores are dusty but unpitted, one small crack forward of right-hand lock. Est.: $1,500-$2,000.
