It's custom built gun, therefore, anything is possible meaning it doesn't have to have 25" barrels along with triangular tapering Churchill rib. If the barrels have choke constriction and are sound I would buy that gun. Remember new one would cost in excess of £100,000, Another plus is if you own that you can sell excess guns you don't need. If fears that Canada will have lead shot ban expressed as by one Canadian member of Upland Journal BBS come to fruition a Purdey will still hold very good price because it's a Purdey. Someone re-blackened the safety button, but one must remember that re-blackening of barrels and small parts doesn't take away from the value if correct method was used. It would seem more consistent if "1" was gold inlaid in similar fashion to ward "SAFE".
