Hoping someone might be interested in keeping this beautiful gun shooting. It has pitting in the barrels and really needs new barrels or re-sleeving, but I don’t have the resource to do it. Before I decommission this lovely gun for the wall over the fireplace would anyone like to take it on? I’ve had varying valuations if restored which would payback the investment as a minimum. If anyone is interested PM me an offer. Thanks for looking.

Hi not sure what it's worth but it looks too nice just to hang on the wall.
What price are you thinking?
Regards Dan

Hi Dan - couldn’t agree more. As I’ve mentioned to a few who have PM’d me, I’d take £200 if it was going to stay shooting.
thanks

Lovely looking gun,too good to hang on a wall. Is it in that bad condition to not keep shooting it.Shame I don't live closer.

Looks like a decent old gun, stocked to the fences and a nice stock.

What's the LOP?

How bad is the pitting?

How much is a decent sleeving job?

Thanks for all the questions and PMs, sorry I didn’t get to them all quickly. Pleased to say that this is now heading to a new owner to be refurbished and keep on shooting.
Regards,
Jez
