    .410 folding belgian hammer shotgun

    FOR SALE - .410 FOLDING BELGIAN HAMMER SHOTGUN
    A really exceptional example of this lovely little Belgian 'Poachers Gun'.

    24" octagonal to round Barrel. Colour Hardening to action. Good woodwork and excellent bore. Probably 3/4 or full choke.

    Exact age unknown - but this kind of folding gun was popular from around 1895 to 1950.

    Bought three years ago from 'Modern and Antique Firearms' of Tuckton, Bournemouth for my 13 year old son. It is as light as a feather and has virtually no re-coil. Shoots beautifully, though it has had very few rounds through it.
    An ideal starter or ladies gun, but also a nice collector's piece. It is the best example of one of these you are ever likely to find.
    Usual SGC rules apply.

    200.00.

    Has it been nitro proofed as most of these are black powder proofed only.

    You might be really lucky and the guy selling it will realise that hes put an extra nought on the value! A bit harsh maybe as it does look a very nice example but average to good examples make 50 - 80. I have seen poor ones go for maiden bids of a pound in gun sales! JC
