A fine boxlock non-ejector by Charles Osborne, and an interesting piece of history, built on an original pre-ejector Westley Richards made action from shortly after 1875. At this time only Westley Richards made boxlock actions, under their patent. The 30″ nitro-proved Damascus barrels have 2 1/2″ chambers, and are choked .000/.047 (True cylinder and extremely full.) The rib is engraved: CHAS OSBORNE & CO LONDON. The gun locks up tight as new. The receiver features border and scroll engraving, along with the maker’s name. The horn-tipped fore-end is of the pull-off variety. The stock measures 1 ½” x 1 7/8” x 14 ½” with slight cast off. The weight is 7 lbs 3 oz. The late, great Datus Proper, author of “Pheasants of the Mind” and “What the Trout Said,” once eloquently described the advantages of hunting pheasants with an English double choked cylinder and full. This pretty gun will make someone an excellent weapon for wild roosters.
