A. Hill & Sons 12-bore boxlock non-ejector shotgun Barrel length: 28"; Chambers: 2 1/2"; Chokes: R 6 L 0; Material: steel; Rib: game; Locks: boxlock; Operating lever: top-lever; Stock length: 14 1/4"; Grip type: straight; Weight: 6lb 6oz.. SN152.

Built by Webley on their proprietary action, this boxlock non-ejector is typical of the honest quality, well-made guns that were commonly sold throughout Britain between the wars. The Anson & Deeley action carries a higher than average quality and coverage of scroll engraving and the name 'A. Hill & Sons' in a banner. The top-lever operates the Purdey bolts and the Webley & Brain screw grip as the third bite.

The 14 1/4" checkered straight-hand, figured, walnut stock has a line-cut buttsole and no buttplate. The matching, checkered forend is fitted with an Anson pushrod release catch.

The 28" steel barrels, with concave game rib, are blued and chambered for 2 1/2" cartridges. They are nitro-proofed in Birmingham. Chokes are approximately 1/4 and 1/2.

Other Notes: The firm like most provincial gunmakers of their day bought guns from large gunmaking concerns in Birmingham. These were sold as their own products and may or may not have been finished 'in-house'. The firm continued to trade until around 2005, ownership remaining within the extended family.
