12g A&D ejector by John Wilkes & Sons - 28 x 2 1/2" barrels
This is a best grade John Wilkes box lock with 28″ x 2 1/2″ barrels which has been fully restored, overhauled, woodwork re-chequered and oiled. It’s in outstanding condition with a 14 5/8″ stock. The scroll backed action is engraved with fine rose and scroll and engraved “John Wilkes & Sons”, and has the 79 Beak Street, London Address on the top rib. The trigger blades are chequered, the gun has a full spindle lever system, an Anson fore-end with bolsters on the woodwork and Southgate ejectors. The gun comes in a oak & leather Wilkes’ case with trade label and named oil bottle. I think as box locks go, it’s about as good as I’ve seen in the last 5 years.
|CONDITION:||One small mark in right tube.|
