A 12 bore boxlock ejector by A A Brown & Sons, c. 1950, serial number 2820. This gun was made in the Sand Street premises and they were known as an ABAS 12 model 238. When a fine condition example of these old boxlocks is located it is ideal for a renovation project. In the case of 2820 is was re-stocked with exhibition grade Turkish walnut, the barrels were completely stripped and re built, re engraved and re blacked. The bores measure virtually as produced and the colour hardening is original. The mechanism works as smooth as silk. It is simply, a joy to own and shoot.
