Lancaster, who manufactured four barrel rifles, pistols, and shotguns, produced this .440 bore or 28 gauge piece offering double the firepower of a standard side-by-side. Charles Lancaster started as a barrel maker in London's Drury Lane in 1811, producing barrels for Joseph Manton and others. By 1826, his firm had moved to 151 New Bond Street and had received a royal appointment to Albert the Prince Consort.
Boss Shotgun - This elegant London-made, over/under Boss 28 gauge is a well-proportioned custom shotgun and the comprehensive English bouquet & scroll engraving pattern wraps neatly around the circumference of the receiver. The wood presentation case for this shotgun is no slouch, either. Boss started making guns in 1816 and to date have only produced about 10,000. Now, that’s custom… At the NRA National Firearms Museum in Fairfax, VA.
