    20 bore Midland Gun Co sidelock valuation help please

    Hi guys I know it's not rifle related but I was wondering if anyone knew a likely valuation for a 20g Midland Gun Company side by side sidelock that has been rebarrelled by them?

    I'm hoping to get some pics of it this week but I can't find any on the net for sale for a comparison,

    Cheers

    Compare with other Birminghma made sidelocks - often finished by regional gunmakers. Rebarrelling will downward effect the value, but from a practical users point of view make it more usable, ditto with sleeved barrels. You are probabely looking 500 to 1,000 but very much depends on quality and how messed about it is.

    Looking through the archive of the Holts auction:

    An Army and Navy Sidelcok non ejector 20 bore made 600 in October 2014

    A charles Hellis sidelock 16 bore was unsold with an estimate of 1,500 to 2,000 - would n't have met the reserve

    Denton & Kennel single trigger sidelock ejector 20 bore made 410

    AyA 20 bore sidelocks seem to make 600 to 1,000 - possibly a bi more if really nice and new.

    Tratts, I have to agree with the value mentioned above,

    A gun on one of our shoots has in the last month paid 1200 for what I can call a every day gun in the same bore from the same maker,the only thing they had to do was take a bit of the stock after doing what he said was about a 30 min's fitting where they had to cut 1 and 1/2" of the stock for his son,

    Good luck with the sale and hope alls well.

    Bob.
