This outstanding double rifle is "hidden" in the obsolete rifle section of the current Holt's auction on line catalogue. I believe that it will likely be bought at a bargain price and hopefully someone here in America will be the lucky person to own it and pass it on to his son or daughter. If it's barrels could only talk.

In my trawl through 50 years of back catalogues, from the Big 4 London auction houses, to the trade auctions, and small regional auctions, I come across many great double rifles.....for instance, back in May and July catalogues for Weller & Dufty, there are some supreme examples by Purdey, Henry, Boss, Grant etc etc. Sadly, many lots are not photographed, and those that are, are black & white. The catalogue descriptions are very good, as the cataloger was Doug Nye, for my money the best in the business at the time.

Interestingly as it is on the obsolete ammunition list of the UK government any person in the UK can own it without needing any permissions or a paper trail. If ever later they obtained ammo for it then it has to be licensed but if exported then not. Here in Germany it would have to be on my papers.

I'd rather have this than a double rifle.
