Original English Double Percussion

By Powell in 8 gauge


 This is a pretty nice double made in England by Powell (might be Howell, hard to read). The bores have been honed to almost new condition. Neither appears to have a choke. The rib is marked "Laminated Steel" and has a mid bead as well as a front one. The locks are crisp and have case colors still showing on the internal parts. The left lock has a bit of pitting. It has new nipples and would make a great shooter. The forend has a few minor chips missing from the top edge. The stock is in overall very good condition with no cracks or repairs. The ramrod is a new replacement but well done. The barrels have a little surface discoloring here and there which is normal for the age. Overall this gun is in very good condition and would make an excellent shooter. The pictures can tell you more.

Weight is 11 lbs. 15 oz. Length of pull to front trigger is 14".
