Today I brought home a nice 1887 Stephen Grant & Sons bar action, sidelever hammer gun. It has just recently been sleeved to 31" and choked a tight 30 and 40 thousands by Johnsons in the UK.
I would like a vintage English case but finding one for a hammer gun with 31" barrels will be an issue.
Any ideas where to start looking?

No need for an importer, they can ship directly to you on accessories. VAT is not applicable on exports as well.

I think for a class piece like the Grant you really need an oak & leather case. I looked at Holts forthcoming sale and the only case listed with suitable barrel length is Lot 3217. It would need refitted of course and the pink !! baize replaced.
Its a basic leather case and not what I would let a Grant side lever set foot in.
