Recently Made English Double Flintlock

by Phil Hanger in 12 gauge

   

 This is a pretty nice double made by Phil Hanger back in the 1980s. The barrels are 29" long and are an original damascus twist barrel that has been honed smooth on the inside and refinished on the outside. Very bold and beautiful pattern. The patent breeches are inset to give the gun a slimmer style. The locks are by L&R and an extra set of springs come with the gun. The stock is English walnut with mineral streaks in it. Nice flat top checkering on the wrist. The wood to metal fit is as good as I have seen on any original high class double. Extremely tight inside and out. Phil admitted that he was not an engraver so he did not clean up the engraving on the original parts he used. This gun would be even more exceptional if the locks and hardware were engraved properly and then color case hardened.

This gun is used but is in excellent condition and would make an excellent shooter. The pictures can tell you more.

Weight is 6 lbs. 12 oz. Length of pull to front trigger is 14".

$5500
