c1889 mfr Antique W.W. GREENER Double Barrel SxS Boxlock HAMMERLESS Shotgun
16 Gauge English Greener
Here we present an antique W. W. Greener Side by Side Hammerless Shotgun in 16 Gauge, manufactured circa 1889 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.
