Disassembling Boxlocks

Here is an illustrated sequence of the removal of the lock work from a basic Anson & Deeley action gun. The totally disassembled gun, showing all the parts is an E.J Churchill of very nice quality with two sets of barrels. The gun being disassembled at the bench is a Dickson 12-bore with gold-washed internals.

The tools you will need include a bench and a vice, of course, plus a small hammer, correctly sized turnscrews, a correctly sized concave-nosed drift, a wooden hand-held spring compressor (easy to make) and a box to put the bits in as you take the locks apart.
