Since the days of flintlock through today, SxS shotguns have been a classic choice not only for bird hunters, but for shotgun enthusiasts all around. Beginning in the 1600’s after the French developed the flintlock action, Joseph Manton set up a shop in London and began producing elegant, tasteful, well-balanced shotguns. In the last 20 years of the nineteenth century, hammerless boxlock and sidelock SxS shotguns began to appear and are still the basis of today’s modern SxS shotguns.
SxS shotguns, or side-by-side shotguns are standard variation and the original design of the double-barreled shotgun. SxS shotguns tend to take more practice for efficient usage because of the off-center nature of the shotgun’s recoil. When fired, the recoil from the body-side barrel tends to be slightly more painful and therefor harder to control.
Popular SxS shotguns include the Purdey Side-By-Side Game Gun, Winchester Model 23 and 24, and the Franchi Highlander.
