Description

W. Hensman SxS 12ga DTEJ. W. Hensman is listed as being active between 1913 and 1920 in Boston Lincs. However the barrels are stamped as being sleeved in 1974. The sleeving has been very well done with the only signs (other than the proof marks) being the traditional nick left in the rib. I believe it was probably restocked at the same time and remains a solid example of English gun making. A nice game gun that has clearly had money spent on it in the past. The barrels are a delicate chocolate brown with little wear and clean bores.

28" Barrels, 2 ½ Chambers, Nitro proof, choked ½ and ¼, 15" straight stock.

I am selling up due to stopping shooting – I am willing to make (sensible) deals especially if buying multiple items and I have for sale a whole range. If anyone wishes to make an offer for everything (and I mean everything – guns (W.Hensman 12g SxS – Russian TOZ63 16g Hammer gun – Midland Gun Company 16g SxS ), slips, cartridges, safe, cleaning kit – the lot) then something in the region of £800 would seal the deal. So a good rough/walked up/game starter setup with everything you need and a few esoteric guns for the cost of a second hand o/u.
