EELL or what?

Recommended Posts

At the risk of resurrecting the same old discussion; it doesn’t HAVE TO BE steel proofed to use steel, it really doesn’t. 

Don’t let the fact the gun you desire isn’t steel shot proofed put you off, it won’t do it any harm at all.

How about a Jubilee?. I have had one for years in 20b. Best little gun I've owned and great snob value!!!!!!!

Not looked at a Jubilee before just had a google, they look very nice. So what is the difference between a EELL and a Jubilee? apart from about 3k.

The Lincoln Jubilee Prestige is ( or was ) imported by Nickersons, and is made by an Italian conglomerate under the name of FAIR. They are very nice guns; my nephew bought one in 20 bore.

Just a bit nicer than the EELL (I've oowned both in 12 and 20). Biggest visual difference being pinless sideplates; but the initial hand assembly means the gun opens and closes so silkily, beautiful!.

None of the 'oh, you can tell it's not done much, it's still stiff'!!!.

Is it 'worth' the extra money over a non sideplated 686 - no.

Would I go back to a non sideplated 686 - NO.

Jubilee is IMO much nicer than a EELL.

Greenfields in Salisbury have a lovely used example

I don’t disagree but this gun will be used on pigeon, pheasant, duck, rabbit you name it (legal quarry) and I will shoot at it. I have one farm i shoot a lot of pigeons at only allow non toxic over their crops and obviously with wildfowl it’s also non toxic. Yes I could use bismuth but that’s very expensive when you are decoying pigeon. So it needs to be steel proofed. 

If you plan to use standard 28 or 32gr 70mm steel you can use in a standard 70mm or 76mm gun.

Interesting, I was under the impression that to use steel the gun should be steel proofed?
