ENGRAVED Antique W & C SCOTT & SON 12 Gauge Side x Side HAMMERLESS Shotgun
FACTORY ENGRAVED Double Barrel BOXLOCK
Here we present an antique engraved W. & C. Scott & Son Side by Side Double Barrel 12 Gauge Hammerless Shotgun, made in 1894 in Birmingham, England. W&C Scott was founded in 1832 by William and Charles Scott, in Birmingham, England producing high quality double shotguns. The company was renamed as W&C Scott & Sons when William Scott’s sons, William Middleditch and James Charles, joined the business. The Scott brothers were responsible for several gun innovations including the block safety catch for hammerless guns and the double catch hammerless lock which is still in use today. William Middleditch was the first to design a sidelock shotgun. In 1897, W&C Scott & Sons amalgamated to become Webley and Scott Revolver and Arms Co Ltd, with Webley making revolvers and Scott still producing their shotguns.
The overall condition is Fine. Original Damascus pattern still present on the barrels. The numbers match. There is sharp and beautiful engraving on the frame. The actions are excellent.
