Description: As it sat on the rack waiting to be photographed, no one saw this gun without commenting on how trim the action is. So out of curiosity, we measured an AyA 4/53 boxlock .410 - built on a .410 action -and then the MacNaughton. The results - the MacNaughton 12 gauge is .050 slimmer than the AyA .410. Scottish Round Actions have become greatly coveted, and the Macnaughton is one of the originators. This one is a magnificent example. Mechanically it locks up tightly on the face, ejectors function well and the triggers are excellent. The toggle safety still operates automatically. The barrels are still in proof and the bores show no damage from over a century of use. Minimum measured wall thickness was .021 (left barrel approximately 5 1/2" from the muzzle at about 10:30). Cosmetically, the gun is elegant. Its svelte action is covered with an elegant scroll engraving with open spaces for a contrast. The bottom tang is one of the longest you’ll see and is a nice complement to the lovely piece of walnut. Cased in a nice period-correct leather case with brass corners and MacNaughton maker's label.
