Phillip B Corin.

* A very interesting and scarce 12 bore side by side hammer shotgun which started life as a percussion muzzle loading gun way back in 1835. As dated by the hallmarked solid silver butt plate, trigger guard and forend tip. It was then converted by Philip B Corin of Penzance, as this is what is engraved on the rib, this might have been done in 1882, as there is a presentation inscription on the butt plate "Presented by F.S. & H.R.W. Bentley Innes to John Bremner 1882". The gun gun has been fitted with 30" barrels, the original birds eye maple stock has a 14 1/4" pull. The action has a lot of original colour case hardening, and is engraved with game scenes, as are the hammers and trigger guard. The gun has been nitro proofed, and has a repaired crack to the front right hand side of the stock, and so is only £950 *

Very Rare Noakes Patent, is there another anywhere in the world ?

 * A exceptionally rare 12 Bore side by side shotgun "Noakes Patent" I have never seen another one of these, let alone in this fantastic condition ! If you note the holes in the hammers, this is to allow pins to enter and lock the hammers when they are cocked, they are released only when you mount the gun as this motion presses the butt plate to retract the pins that were locking the hammers ! also note the extra long lock plates, is there another anywhere in the world ? if there is, would it be in this incredible condition ? ..... the gun has 30" barrels, 14 1/2" pull, and its overall length is 46 1/2" ,  you can own the worlds safest and most rare hammer gun for only £2000-00 *
