The Northwood boxlock guns were made by Holland & Holland after they purchased Webley & Scott in 1985. This gun is in new and unused condition. It is in its factory fitted leather trunk case with two piece ebony cleaning rod, two cleaning clothes, mop, jag, brush, H&H snap caps and H&H oil bottle, and key. Case is in very good condition with one broken strap.
This is an exceptionally nice piece from one of England's top tier makers with excellent game gun weight and lots of curb appeal. It was a raffle item from The Cancer Research Foundation of America Sporting Clays Invitational in 1995 and valued at $12,000 at that time. It just doesn't get much better than this!
