A Woodhill Damascus Twist Double Barreled 12 Gauge Shotgun by Clabrough

An exceptionally handsome Clabrough cartridge double barreled 12 gauge shotgun made for A. Woodhill, London. The barrels have a really exceptionally nice and bold Damascus twist pattern on them, and the stock has fine checkering and a gutta percha cap to the pistol grip. There are engraved vines at the breech, and on the lock, as well as engraved designs on the underside of the action. There is a silver escutcheon plate on the underside of the butt. The barrel rib is engraved, A. Woodhill, London, Laminated Steel. The lockplates have the name A. Woodhill. The gun is clearly a Clabrough, as can be seen in the engraving in particular. Clabough’s manufacture of guns for Woodhill and other makers is discussed in Mr. Shelton’s fine book on Clabrough. Dimensions: 44.75 inches long, with 28.75 inch barrel.  Processing and shipping within the continental U.S. $65.00 plus 1.5% replacement cost insurance.
