Engraved COGSWELL & HARRISON Avant Tout BOXLOCK SXS HAMMERLESS Shotgun C&R
“KONOR” Double Barrel 12 Gauge Shotgun with EJECTORS!
Here we present a Cogswell & Harrison “Konor”, Avant Tout (meaning “Above all Others”) Boxlock Double Barrel Side by Side Hammerless Shotgun, made circa 1960 in London, England. Cogswell & Harrison was established in May 1770 and is London’s oldest surviving gun maker. Over the years, Cogswell & Harrison has manufactured a quite diverse range of sporting shotguns and rifles during its long history.
The Konor, which means “today’s gun”, was made in the 1950s and 60s as part of C&H’s “Avant Tout” line of guns, which, back then, were still made in-house. It sold for about $600 when it was made, which would be about $4,000 today. This one is equipped with ejectors.
The overall condition is fine. The action is strong and tight all around. Both bores are extremely bright and mirror-like. All markings are clear and legible. The safety functions properly and reads “SAFE” in gold plating. The engravings are sharp, and the case-colored frame make this example really stand out. The stock is in great shape! A very attractive double!
