The Spanish were copying the iconic Holland and Holland, and from across the room they look similar. They feel alike too. Quite light. Sometimes when I'm hunting someone asks, "Hey what kinda gun ya got there?" I look at the lock and say, "It's some sort of English maker. Let's see here.....ah, here it is, it says Holland and Holland." Big laugh. The gun cost me $450, but I had to put a few hundred in the barrel work. Had them blacked too. I like the gun. Yeah, it's my Holland and Holland wanna be!

May I suggest ENCO for your pin gauges. You can get a set with a fairly wide range made in china cheaply. If you have to grind a bevel on them it wont hurt as much. By the way, don,t get them to hot grinding the chinese steel can lose its hardness fairly quickly.

Default raising dents in barrels

I use expanding dent plugs I got from Frank Mittermeier gunsmith supplies there made of bronze and will not mar the bores 12,16 and 20 gauge never had a problem raising dents never used hydraulic dent raiser Brownell's sells them at $450.00 per gauge. J.J.

If it was hit with a file, then you are going to want to check the wall thickness in that spot.

I have shot that set of barrels hundreds of rounds and plan on shooting it more. That gun has become my magic wand on doves and other flying objects. I recently pick up a ph 16 ,1 frame and the barrels fit it like a glove. I have patterned them but not hunted them. When I start selling off this will be one of the last to go. The 14 guage you checkered is finally coming together. Barrels should be back today from Brads shop. Thanks again for the wonderful job you did on that checking. Dave

I have a Spanish double that had a large bulge at about where the choke starts. I shot it a few times with that bump up there, but it bothered me so I took it to Keith Kearcher and he hammered it out and reblacked the barrels and now that guns looks great.

(I would post a pic, but I have forgotten how to do it!!)

Both of the chambers on the 14 ga. had been reamed out to a 12 ga. and both were bulged. When the barrels came back from Brads the bulge was gone, like they never existed. It is now chambered as a 20 ga.

Enco was bought out by MSC more than a year ago. Prices have risen considerably.
