    Percussion Shotgun Info

    I just bought a 12ga percussion side by side; on the side plates have the name of POWELL & the top of the barrel's are marked London Fine Twist. On the bottom of the barrels under the stock are the letters C.S. If anybody knows any of the history behind the maker & the years they produced these guns would be greatly appreciated. It's really in nice shape for it's age; looking forward to giving it a place above the fireplace!

    I would do a search on the internet or contact one of the fine gun dealers in your area. If you're not familiar with someone that knows English guns, pick up a copy of Shhoting Sportsman magazine.

    If it is a genuine Powell, they made some 'best guns' on par with Boss, Purdey and Holland.
