More About this Item


Description: J. Purdy & Sons Self-Opening Sidelock Ejector Gun in 12g. 2-3/4''. This Purdy was made in 1895 and was completely refinished at Purdy with accompanying letter in 1995. The gun was built as a hammerless ejector gun with 30'' barrels, a stock length of 14-3/16'' and a weight of 6lbs 10.5oz. The barrels were recently resleeved under Purdy's supervision. All rust or pitting was removed from action and re-engraved along with case coloring. The stock and forend were refinished and the barrels were re-regulated after the case hardening. The stock has a checkered wood butt plate bringing the L.O.P. to a bit under 15-1/4'' from the front trigger. The drop at comb is 1-3/4'' and 2-1/2'' at heel. This is an exquisite Purdy built during the London Golden Age of gun making. There are a few handling marks on the stock and a very short, none extending, hairline in the back of the locks. But overall excellent condition in fitted Purdy Leather case with accompanying letter from Purdy. #15166 (Collectibles)
