I'm sure they're very nice but it's just not my thing...
I love shotguns like that. They have taken a simple functional design and elevated it to a work of art. That thing is beautiful.
it would be cool if they used ivory as well
totally makes you want to dress up like an english gentleman and go on safaris
equal parts artwork and serious tool. I personally would prefer 100% tool. I would love to have a quality o/u with some semi fancy wood but a stock that has been fitted for me. Real clean trigger, patterns nicely, but otherwise very little fluff.
Many companies offering "Best" quality doubles have various levels of finish/detailing/artwork, so it's possible to get the same action (hopefully a sidelock) with simple case-hardened side plates and an oil rubbed turkish walnut stock.
I've been debating selling some black guns to purchase a .28 gauge AyA double.
Yeah, I've never understood the point of blowing thousands of dollars on a shotgun of all things, which lacks the precision and inherent cost of a quality rifle. Those inlays and etchings look neat, but they're not for me.
Also never seen the appeal of over/under and side-by-side. Give me a nice pump-action or semi-auto and I'm good.
Sure it's a shotgun, all? H&H is famous for double rifles, y'know... .375H&H ring a bell?
I usually think about absurd straight-walled cartridges like .600 Nitro Express whenever I hear "Holland & Holland," personally...
which is why I wonder about all these people griping about spending assloads of $ for a shotgun.
Holland&Holland are far more famous for extremely well-made double rifles, AFAIK, than for their shotguns.
England is so gay...
Almost $300,000 for a .700 nitro!?!?!?!? Yoooou can suck my dick.
mf101 has two.
Put a surefire and a rail on that and I could sell hundreds of them
It would be sweet to have one, though.
I was part of the medical standby for a charity clays match where H&H had a tent. There were a couple guys shooting H&H shotguns. I didn't handle any of the H&H stuff, but it was pretty to look at.
i've never even seen one of those in real life.
while it is a work of art, it's just not my thing.
I have one. Truck gun.
and he got an AOW stamp, sawed the barrel and stock off and now its a truck gun.
why in the hell would anyone buy something like that and then think of firing a live shell in it? work of art.
try finding ammo for it though, and the 300k will be chump change.
Kinda like those M95 8x56R rifles.
