Re: English Side by Side

Had the chance to put the endoscope down the barrels this afternoon. It looks as though the gun was check fired before they sent it and was not cleaned.
Need to find some bits in my cleaning box to give it a proper thrutching! :razz:

Re: English Side by Side

It arrived this morning and looks to be in good shape except for the bores which may need sleeving. Nitro Proofed and well marked. It is proofed to the 1925 rule at Birmingham. This confirms that it is one of the last guns made by the company as they ceased making guns altogether in 1928. MARKS.jpg ...

Re: Durham Light Infantry

The past serving members of a Regiment are the link to it's heritage and must be honored in the future.
Luckily there are many authors these days who are interested in recording the histories of these gallant Regiments. :GBR: :GBR: :GBR:

Re: English Side by Side

Birmingham was a gun making centre as early as the 17th C. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_Quarter BSA was probably the largest. I once had a shotgun 'fitted' at Westley Richards, that was an experience :D This shotgun is at least 90 years old so I have bought some mild loaded shells to try.

I just 'won' an auction for an English Side by Side 16 g shotgun. Put in a silly bid and won it :shock: It is marked as Birmingham gun marked Charles Osborne & Co Looks OK from the pics supplied by the seller and it comes with a 3 months guarantee so it should be OK. It has a 65 mm chamber so I ...
