|WILLIAM ELLIS BIRMINGHAM 12 GA DOUBLE|
This high grade English double shotgun was made in Birmingham circa 1855 by William Ellis. The locks are crisp and both locks and the iron furniture are beautifully engraved; the hammers superbly sculpted. The English walnut shows good figure and still retains its original finish. About a 14" LOP to the front trigger. The rear tang screw is a replacement, as is one guard screw. The gun has been nicely and correctly cleaned and exhibits minor restoration on the wrist. The 12 ga. bores have been polished and show light pitting in places. The nipples and wedge are new, as is the hickory ramrod. So why the low price? Because I believe the barrels are not original to the gun, as they do not mate perfectly with the tang and show a small gap. There are no markings on the rib, the rib engraving is a bit different than that on the tang. There are Belgian proofs on the bottom, and I think a Wm. Ellis gun of this quality would have had fancier London-marked barrels. However, the 28 1/2" long barrels fit very tight with no wobble, and the hammers strike the nipples perfectly. This is a fine, light, and serviceable shotgun of great beauty and grace, and one that comes up nicely to the shoulder with just the right drop for rising birds.
