WH WAKEFIELD Double Barrel HAMMER SxS C&R Shotgun
Nicely Engraved 12 Gauge English Made Shotgun
Here we present a W. H. Wakefield Double Barrel Side x Side Hammer Shotgun, manufactured circa 1875 in Birmingham, England. This double barrel hammer gun would have been used for putting game on the table or having a fun afternoon shooting clay pigeons at one’s shooting club. It could have been used to defend the home in a pinch. It features engraved locks with ducks on either side, as well as the maker’s name, scrollwork and a border. “WH WAKEFIELD” is also marked on the barrel rib. The barrels tilt down at the breech with the rotary lever under the trigger guard.
The overall condition is very good. The bores are in good condition and smooth with light texture mostly near the breech end. The actions are excellent. Smooth and solid stock. A very nice English double from the 1870s!
