Postby gemerald » Tue Jul 06, 2010 8:19 pm

I own a circa 1860's-70's westley richards 12 gauge side by side shotgun, in good - excellent condition, still in it's original box complete with original cleaning rods, and original tin of westley richards cleaning oil. Can anybody give me an idea on what this may be worth for insurance / possible sale purposes, cheers

I'd just call Westley Richards and they'll probably be more than happy to give you an idea. A lot depends upon if it's a sidelock or a boxlock or in WR case a droplock. I suspect it's what's called a hammer gun. If it's something called a pinfire then you just might be in the money. There is a pinfire posted on Guns International with pics and a history that is going for 10K American. Off the wall I'd say anywhere from 1K to as high as 5K US.
