  1. A little bit about Charles Boswell.... Charles Boswell was the son of a Butcher; he was born in December 1850 in the village of Hertford, north of London. A passion for shooting and a keen interest in guns led him to enter servitude to become a gunmaker at the age of 14. Beginning with Mr. Thomas Gooch, a traditional gunmaker in the village of Hertford, young Boswell progressed to gain employment in the Royal Small Arms factory in Enfield. On completion of his apprenticeship, he married and opened his own business in Edmonton, with repairs and gun fittings comprising the majority of his early work. He was a competitive live pigeon shot of some considerable talent and his frequent wins at Hendon Shooting grounds and Hornsey Wood soon brought him to the attention of his fellow trap shooters. By the mid-1870’s, he had developed a substantial business in the fitting and making of custom pigeon guns. Preferring to use tried and tested patents of other manufactures, his guns established a reputation for quality and reliability, as a result, many were sent abroad. In June, 1883, he moved to the address with which he is most associated, 126 The Strand, London, WCI. As manufacturing live pigeon guns were his specialty, it is little surprise that the recession following the First World War and the banning of live pigeon shooting greatly affected his business. The live pigeon gun was Charles Boswell’s trade mark gun, and there are many spectacular examples still put to good use today.
