A good friend of mine has two shotguns he no longer uses and is wondering what their value may be if anyone may be able to help please? The only William Evans 12g on guntrader at the moment is over £4k but I have no idea if his is comparable and there are no Midland Gun Co 20g to look at,
William Evans side by side 12g boxlock made in 1910 - 30" barrels blueing in pretty decent nick few marks inside but it's a few years old!! Apparently William Evans got his wrists slapped for engraving 'William Evans from Purdey' on the barrels and was stopped from doing it. Original case which is a bit tatty and has some straps missing.
2nd is a Midland Gun Co side by side 20g sidelock with 28" barrels. This has had a stock repair done professionally on the top and is also in pretty good fettle.
