Antique W.W. GREENER Double Barrel SxS 10 Gauge Percussion HAMMER Shotgun
Made Circa 1850 in Birmingham, England
Here we present an antique W. W. Greener Double Barrel Side by Side Percussion Hammer Shotgun in 10 Gauge, manufactured circa the mid-1800s in Birmingham, England. William W. Greener was a member of the second-generation family which had been involved with gunmaking from 1829 to the present day. Greener served his apprenticeship with John Gardner in Newcastle prior to working for Joe Manton, who was probably the best gunmaker in England in the early 1800s. In 1829 he set up his own shop in Newcastle making percussion muzzle loading sporting and military shotguns and rifles, as well as harpoon guns for the Dundee Whalers. However, he found it difficult to obtain the best materials, so he moved to Birmingham in 1844 where Greener Gunmaking has remained ever since.
The overall condition is good. The action is strong. The bores are in good shape. Traditional floral scroll engravings can be found on the locks and hammers. Finish on the barrels has matured to a smooth brown patina.
