Thomas Horsley 2602


Thomas Horsley side-lever, 16-bore, hammer gun, with rebounding bar locks and Purdey bolt. Re-proofed in 1984 for nitro. Best quality, with 29" damascus barrels, which are blemish free. The gun was professionally restored a decade ago and restocked by ex-Purdey stocker David Becker to its current dimensions. Slightly cast-on for the left hander. Altogether, a rare find. Made in 1880.
