Offered at no reserve auction from my personal collection, this is a beautiful light weight London Best game gun from the early 1900s. Still in its original Oak and Leather brass cornered case in fine condition. The H.J. Hussey New Bond Street address appears on the game rib and that indicates it was built probably between 1898 and 1911. The original case label numbered to the gun and giving proof load information and instructions is still afixed to the case lid, to the left of a later Harrison & Hussey label in the center. This newer label was probably applied when the gun came back to the maker for service after the company name change.

The wood on this gun is gorgeous. The delicate full coverage bouquet & scroll engraving is London best and remains in fine condition, much more crisp than most 100 year old guns. The checkering and drop points are also crisp. No signs of excessive wear. Any refurbishing was obviously careful and expertly done. A couple very small dents can be found in the stock, along with light handling marks, but the condition is outstanding for its age. No dents in the beautifully struck barrels, bores are bright and rust free and ring true. She locks up tight on the face and ejects properly.

This gun is for the gentleman or lady who likes to shoot the light English style loads from its original 2-1/2 inch chambers. Perfect for driven birds, grouse, quail or clays. NOT FOR MAGNUM LOADS. I’m happy to answer questions or supply more pictures if I missed anything. Call me on my cell phone if you do not get a reply to your Gun Broker email inquiries. The GB email system seems to have problems. My cell phone is 410-924-8484.

Payment and FFL expected within seven days of auction close. C&R will be okay, where legal. I accept Certified Checks and Postal (USPS) Money Orders for immediate shipment. Personal checks imprinted with makers named and address accepted with shipment after it clears. No business checks or private money orders.

Shipment will be via Insured 2 Day FedEx, well packed, and will cost a flat $100 within the lower 48 states. Higher to Alaska and Hawaii. A three day, no fire, no disassembly, no damage inspection begins when it arrives at your FFL. Returns accepted if the gun is described wrong, if I have answered your questions incorrectly, or if you simply do not like it, and a full and prompt refund will be made, minus shipping and Gun Broker fees. I'll pay those fees if the mistake was mine. I want the new owner to be just as happy with it as I have been! Gun must be returned directly to me in same condition, same packaging, and by the same method as originally shipped. If your dealer will not accept shipment from a private party with photo ID, this will add $50 to the shipping cost to cover an FFL fee on my end.

Not for sale where prohibited, so know your local gun laws. By bidding, buyer accepts full responsibility for the use or misuse of this gun once it arrives at your FFL. All used guns should be checked by a licensed Gunsmith before firing.

NOTE: This gun is for sale locally, so auction could end early if no bids have been placed. Thanks for looking and good luck bidding! Phone or email inquiries welcome – 410-924-8484, or getbluegrass@aol.com
