  1. J Blanch, 16g BLE, 28" barrels with useful choke of 3/8 and 5/8. This gun continues to surprise me with its ability at longish range. G Being both a Greener and a 16g fan, I like this a lot!
  2. I have two, both 12g although one built for game (6 1/2lb) and the other for duck shooting (7 1/2lb). Oddly it is the 'Far Killer' duck gun that is auto safe. Absolutely fine to use as long as there is enough grip to the safety catch otherwise a cold or gloved hand can slide over the top. GBS
  3. I was considering the first. The second iwas a fleeting thought but it is very difficult to retain the balance and handling which then defeats the point or buying this type of gun*. Sadly i am not Stebbing and i'd be jolly cross at Grandpa for selling the Beesleys if i was! * Does anyone have any experience of having a really good sleeving job done? The sort of job where it isn't patently obvious that the gun has been sleeved the moment you pick it up? GBS
  4. No worries, thank you. I've tried contacting them. GBS
  5. Thank you but these are from a different lot in the September Auction. I am after June. Similar guns though. GBS
  6. Not at all, the same lot has reappeared elsewhere with a slightly different description and i'm doing my homework.....
  7. Good afternoon, Does anyone have a copy of the bore and wall measurement information for the June 2018 sale? In particular, lot 1301? Thanks, GBS
  8. Does anyone have the above books? If so, i would be very grateful of a copy of the gun building records (numbers of shotguns and what configuration) for both DM-B and also JD. I'm after quantity of guns built per year since about 1980. Many thanks, GBS
  9. Wanted as above. thanks, GBS
  10. Looking at this with the Greener cross bolt, pin locations and general shape of the action and stock it appears to be pretty similar. GBS
  11. I have two. A game model and a heavy 3" wildfowling one. No problem with the side safety. GBS
