I think the one I saw price reflects the fact that it actually could be over 100 years old and unshot. All original finish. A real collectors item.

Thanks!Knew they did Dickson work but that guns engraving seems very much of a style ! (in a good way!).

That is different from mine, its much deeper cut for a start very nice though.

It was your description of a nettle basher that made me chortle.

Serious question. What would you expect to pay for a decent Dickson trigger plate round action?

I may have a reasonable inheritance coming in the foreseeable and have always had a fancy for a Dickson.

Well, you could always just start with the action (estimate 600-800) and build up from there! :)

Army and navy 12 bore, Boxlock non ejector and a W richards case bought at auction today. 
apologies for the black tape but it’s just holding a temporary butt pad to work out the required extension

No one, I got it home and just put the one on that I had, if it’s somewhere near then I’ll go to my local fitter and get it measured properly, if not I’ll play around a bit more until I’m happy before going to see him.

What a coincidence - my other half reckons I could do with an extension - getting wood is no problem but she says it doesn't fit like it used to.

I think it will be comfortable to shoot it’s a bit similar to the spec on my number 3 magnum and that’s my favourite side by side made in 1975

Thanks button I’m just off to work so I will look the slip out tonight. My wife bought it for me for a birthday present from House of Bruar I think it might be Something like Ray Pavon but will check later. It’s well made and sturdy and should last well and it’s

Thank you for coming back to me 

If it is HoB that would be ideal as I pass that weekly but for the sake of my finances tend not to stop!

What is your s/s, I quite fancy one with a pistol grip, AYA?

Is that a split in the head of the stock???

Saw that, it needs looking at, but I put a glass on it and it seems deeper and wider a whisper back from the action as though something scratched along the action and then on to to the wood and it does run somewhat across the grain. Gallyons hold the records which means you'd have to pay a bit for any details, but one site suggests c1956 as the year of make. Decent ones are making reasonable money. I have been told by a 'smith/RFD not too far south of Lloyd that if mine -  which he says was not a sleeper but had been in a coma since '74 when it was made and as it has virtually no real sign of use except for a dint on the rib which would disappear if the barrels were to be blued - was to appear on his 'for sale rack' it would carry a price tag of £2300.
