Post Re: 16-bore shotguns
Having thought about it, I am going to get a 12b or a 20b, of which I have both already. It just makes better financial sense re cartridges, although the 16s I have seen have undeniale charm.

If you're right-handed, there's a lovely boxlock Leeson 16 on sale at EJ Churchill.

Hi Aaron, I haven't kept an ear open for English sidelocks, as my budget is not that flexible. I'm looking for a "best" boxlock at present.

However it's probably worth you looking at:

http://www.jroberts-gunmakers.co.uk
http://gunpricing.co.uk/british.php (always worth checking regularly)
http://www.gallyon-and-sons.co.uk/

Bear in mind that there's the Holts auction in London on 14 Sept, the Bonhams auction next week and the Game Fair to consider too.

Polchraine, I did email you about the 12-bore SBS, but I never heard back. Did the email reach you?
