J. Crockart & Sons was a family owned business in Scotland from its inception by its founder James Crockart 1852 until its sale by his grandsons in 1945. This is a A&D type boxlock action with a Scott spindle type top lever, an automatic safety and two triggers. The action is engraved in a well cut, traditional small scroll engraving surrounding the maker’s name on each side of the action. The gold oval remains blank and “SAFE” is inlaid in gold.
Proofed in Birmingham, the 27” barrels remain in original proof with 2 1/2” chambers and have perfect bores that both measure precisely at .405”. The right barrel is choked .005” and the left barrel choked .010”. Barrels are topped with a smooth concave game rib that is engraved with the maker’s name and address.
Stocked with a highly figured two-piece blank that is perfectly laid out. Shaped with a straight hand grip and a splinter forend, both have a point pattern, flattop checkering with Mullered borders. The splinter forend is fitted with an Anson push rod and the stock has a 14 1?2" LOP over a checkered butt.
Gun is in excellent condition with the barrels tight on face with a very good re-black. The action retains muted traces of its original color hardening and the engraving remains sharp. Trigger bow, tang and cover plate retain nearly all their original black and fire blue finish remains bright on triggers and safety.
Gun weighs 4 lbs. 9.5 oz.
A pre-war, Scottish made .410 bore in superb condition with adult sized stock dimensions and very tasteful adornments...an exceptional gun on a lot of levels.
