The Linhope Shotgun



The Linhope was borne out of the need for a heavier but still well balanced Side by Side for those high bird days.

This gun is built on a best quality sidelock seven pin action with gold cocking indicators. The additional size of the frame makes it a much more comfortable gun for shooting heavier loads and as a result absorbs more recoil. The Linhope is the real alternative to an Over and Under.

It is stocked in the very best quality walnut with an engraved steel capped Prince of Wales grip and a rolled edge trigger guard. Beaver tail forends are available if required.

The 30" barrels are superior proofed for 3"/76mm cartridges (up to 46 grams) and are fitted with a flat engine turned top rib. Chokes will be bored to your special requirements and Teague chokes are available.

The engraving is of traditional bouquet and scroll and is either colour case hardened or with a 'bright' finish.

Fitted into a hand made best quality leather gun case.
