Hi,

I have for sale my 1920's Charles Boswell 12G. It has 30 inch barrels (sleeved), 12g non ejector live pigeon gun. Nice wide rib, an unusal side set lever, double trigger, a metal horn butt plate, lovely figured stock, nice sideplate engraving. A great game gun, A classic looking gun. After much consideration, I have decided to pack in the shotguns and get into rifles. So, once I have sold this last gun I will have various other bits of kit up for sale; Shotgun cabinet, decoys, gun cleaning kit, cartridge bags/belts etc etc.

I am only after 600 o.n.o for a quick sale. Like I said, a beautiful gun (as is always the case with Charles Boswells). 650 o.n.o with motor case (comes with key)

I am based in dumfries, any trial welcome.

Hi, the price is reasonably flexible, the barrels are sleeved, so the bores are smooth as silk and shiny as new.

It's an absolute beauty - that woodwork still looks lovely after almost 100 years of use.

Wish I had the spends but...... loft conversion beckons :whistling:

Aye, that's what attracted me the gun, the figure in the wood is outstanding. I am reluctant to let it go, but needs must i guess.
