A nice Beretta 627 EELL is one and a few others I've noticed.

Out of interest what is your reason for selling?

I gave up on my pheasant syndicate this year as i seemed to be the only one with half a clue. Too many bird murderers and lazy members.

Well after another outing with sxs and o/u and due to the fact I have dominant left eye I have concluded that sxs is the way to go I shoot better with them....now do I get a berretta parallelo or an old English and what barrels 28 or 30 it's all so difficult...my £30 hit everything gun is a keeper it's 28 inch barrals I want a nice gentleman's Sunday gun....

What is the best to look out for around 3k including trade in

I think with the budget you have there will be plenty of choice

 

I personally got a pair like this

something else worth a look if you want new is the Rizzin although not so sure resale value would be there but if you aint planning on selling it doesnt matter

My opinion, buy yourself a piece of English history. With 3k to play with you're going to have a lot of retail therapy

Edit, 30" Damascus barrels, but I'm biased.

Will damascus barrals shoot normal 30 grain cartridges or does it have to be black powder

I have a English Damascus barrels side by side and it is fine with ordinary cartridges just never shoot steel and check it has been proofed for nitro only downside is they are usually 2.5 inch chamber but there are plenty of cartridges in this size

This gun is my go to game gun and there is nothing better than shooting with a piece of history in my opinion

Yes mine is 2.5" too but compX carts are fine. Try a Damascus barrelled box lock, it comes up to the shoulder sooooo well, beautifully balanced.

Mine's proofed to 32g but that's a tad harsh for a 140 year old gun. A little mechanical sympathy etc. etc.

Check proof marks for nitro proof, it'll be stamped if it is. If you're buying from a dealer just ask.

Damascus barrels are the answer on a slow day - you can sit and admire them for hours. My Lincoln Jeffries even has a Damascus steel Rib :yes: .

Thank you I will have a look out for a piece of history rather than a modern beretta and the Damascus barrals i think will look mighty fine on a gentlemans sunday outing shotgun...

What and where are these said gentlemen going to shoot on a Sunday? :whistling:

They can shoot game birds in Scotland no problem just do not shoot ducks and geese.

Have had a browning 725 UK on guntrader for a while now and had nothing in response other than time wasters and chances. Don't want to px it just want to sell it but the prices have been offered by dealers are a joke

A gentleman while out on a sunday afternoon in the county of Durham with his fine SXS can shoot pigeons,crows,rooks,rats and rabbits on a sunday...not wildfowl or game!! As he will burn in the hell fire. Examples of Game means pheasant, partridge, red grouse, black grouse and hare. Wildfowl geese ducks etc.

Disgraceful! A gentleman, after attending church would adjourn to the local hostelry before returning home for luncheon and then having a nap until it was time for the Archers followed by dinner. :whistling::innocent:

 

Whatever you end up with, enjoy.
