Following on Gunsaholic's recent thread about his unfired Webley & Scott, here are some pix of a new-to-me circa 1885 Grant 10 bore. Apologies for the glare.

It appears to be barely used, perhaps because at 12 pounds 13 ounces you would need a gunbearer to carry the beast. I don't have a chamber gauge but an unfired 3.5" brass shell seats with the rim 1/4" out.

You are truly a fortunate man to own such a piece.
I love the butt on it. My favorite way to have them.
Jones underlever to boot, and the condition, just, WoW!

O.M

Beautiful condition. Thanks for showing it to us.

How is it choked? Tight in both, I hope?

Wow! Makes you wonder how such a gun could get so little use over so long a period. Great find. What’s the barrel length?

There is some choke in the left barrel.

I can imagine the conversations. “Let’s go goose hunting” . “OK, go get the gun”. “You go get the gun”. “No, you go get the gun. That thing is heavy”.

“Let’s go fishing”


Beautiful piece.

Best,
Ted

Most of us who own large and varied collections would be as happy if we sold everything and just kept a few examples like this Grant.
