Default Lean Dickson & Son

Although I love my many Parkers, this gun is hard to leave home on long walks. 12 gauge, 29 inch, 6 pounds 7 oz.

After looking at the pics I scrolled down to post a one word response, but Brian beat me to it.

Now that's exactly how a 12ga. bird gun should look and weigh. Very nice.

Great looking condition, but the wood is superb! Did you get any information on the gun from Dickson's?

Ken, I do have that information in an email somewhere. I will see if I can find it and post any interesting facts. I don't recall the actual information other than it is circa 1900 and I believe the initials on the trunk case match the owner.

I'll go with glorious.
It is a veritable celebration of the gunmaker's art, yet sublime in its restrained elegance!
Good Lord, that is a magnificent thing! That is as nice an example of a Dickson round action as I have ever seen.
Enjoy it!
