Description: Charles Lancaster 20 Bore Shotgun


General Specs: Charles Lancaster, Year 1984, 20 Gauge, 5lbs 13oz, Side by Side

Serial Number: 25003

Charles Lancaster has been one of the elite names in the British shotgun business for well over 100 years. Absorbed by Grant and Lang in the 1930's, the guns Lancaster designed remained in production and his patents and styles continued to be utilized by the "BEST GUN" trade. SN 25003 was made in 1984, a 20 Ga. with heavy 3 ¼ ton proofs, 2-3/4? Chambers, 28? Chopper lump barrels engraved “Chas. Lancaster. Birmingham.” on low narrow concave game ribs with the number “1” inlaid in gold on the rib (was #1 of a pair). Breech ends of bbls have 1? triangles of shaded scroll. Bottoms of bbls are fitted with Holland & Holland style assisted opening spring mechanism. Bbl flats show 1984 Birmingham nitro proofs for 2-3/4? chambers. Holland style bar lock actions feature non-automatic safeties (SAFE is inlaid in gold), bushed strikers, and non-selective single trigger. Lockplates are fitted with H & H style hand detachable pin. Actions is engraved with well executed large flowing open scroll. “Chas. Lancaster” is in arched rib band on each lockplate. Bottoms of actions are engraved “De Luxe Assisted Opener”. Blued top levers have “1? inlaid in gold. Single beaded small bow trigger guard is scroll engraved, with SN on tang. Broadly streaked and nicely figured European walnut straight grip buttstock measures 14-7/16? LOP, with a Silvers pad, diamond hand drop points and gold shield on toe line. Nicely cut approx 28 LPI flattop standard point pattern checkering has double line border. This beautiful Birmingham SLE assisted opener represents an incredible value when compared to the London made counterparts. Weighing just 5 3/4lbs. and balanced perfectly just forward of the hinge pin, these guns demonstrate why British double guns are so sought after by the most knowledgeable gunners. What a great gun at a great value, sure to please the next owner as it appreciates in value. Thanks for looking!
