VISIT OUR STAND AT THE BRITISH SHOOTING SHOW 15th - 17th FEBRUARY AND SEE THIS GUN AND OTHER LOVELY ANTIQUE SHOTGUNS.
This lovely hammergun by the highly respected gunmaker Joseph Lang was built when the breech loading centrefire hammergun was at the peak of its popularity. With its mid-height hammers it still harks to the early guns of its type but the rounded bar, rebounding locks and finely executed, prolific engraving speaks to the next decade of hammergun development. The gun was rebarrelled by Henry Atkin between 1891 and 1905 and it is interesting to note that some 60 years later Atkin and Lang were to be united under the title of Atkin, Grant & Lang.
The gun has at some time been professionally restocked with a very beautiful piece of honey coloured walnut. The forend wood appears to be original and one interesting detail is that one of the X-bolt escutcheons is made of damascus steel.
With its beautiful replacement walnut stock, TIG sleeved barrels and sensitive restoration, this shotgun would make an excellent gun for both game and clays.
