Yes, understood....guilt until proven innocent is a good standard when it comes to this. I hope all this also helps the starter of this thread as well. I got a lot out if this from you guys as well as small bore and others....it was better than reading any book. I will be back later today on the Woodward thread with Pictures.

Just one note toward barrels of vintage guns; In the time of Damascus barrels, the cost of the barrels was equal to appoximately half the cost of the gun.

Today one can always find a good deal on a vintage gun with barrels which are pretty thin, pitted, or far too thin to safely shoot. Try finding a good set of high grade barrels that need a home! That is a little harder.

I figure that vintage American SxS's of medium to high grades with cut barrels are worth half of what they would be worth with good barrels. Maybe a sleeved English gun is worth about as much?

As usual, Rocketman's calculations are really, really good considering he is pricing the gun from a formula, sight unseen.

I'd say a fine lang (best) sidelock ejector with original barrels is an $8000-$15,000 gun. I'd say the gun you describe with replacement barrels is in that $3800-$5800 price band because of the work described.

Excellent guns made by an excellent maker (and Grandson of Purdey) for a very reasonable sum of money. I'd go for it and shoot it regularly!
