The ABAS Series 8

A.A.Brown & Sons

The ABAS Series 8 is a brand new over and under shotgun, the first to be produced by A.A.Brown & Sons in their 79 year history. A pair of 16 bores are currently in production for a client and very early photographs of their manufacture can be seen here.

It is based on the time proven action developed by J.Woodward and C.Hill in 1913. This action was chosen for its shallow profile allowing A.A.Brown & Sons to shape the gun with the subtle domed aesthetics employed on their best side by sides.

The photographs on this page will show our progress during the complete manufacture and you can currently compare the picture to the left with the one below to see the progress made in the last month between the two photographic sessions.

Great care and a lot of time is being spent ensuring the guns have the look and feel of our very best side by sides, but the newly found challenge of creating fresh shapes only seen on over and under guns is allowing us to evolve our style.

The first pair are 16 bores as we like the aesthetics of this calibre relative to the performance it delivers. This first pair has double triggers which give fast selection of the alternate barrel, although single trigger as well as other calibres are available.

The Series 8 will be available with or without Teague multi-chokes. The first pair have just passed proof and in a very rare and kind gesture we were allowed to follow and photograph the guns passing through the process as shown here.

By utilizing the latest machining techniques and following up with hand work from some of the country's finest gun makers, you can be sure the ABAS Series 8 will live up to its makers promise to manufacture some of the most striking, best hand made guns.

This site will be regularly updated during the manufacture of this first pair, so make sure to check back often to see the progress. If you'd like more information on the ABAS Series 8 or are interested in an order please call us or email us.
