A century on, a new gun meets—and makes—gunmaking history.
Clearing up misunderstandings.
Some guns are made to create a brilliant impression in their entirety. Others are intended for detailed delectation engraved in a way that rewards close inspection and insists on their handling and the play of light. The Tallett-engraved Charles Boswell .410 is a rare example of both.
So you love the outdoors, hunting and fishing; want to help preserve wild places and ensure that wild creatures thrive; and enjoy sharing your enthusiasm for outdoor recreation with others. Well, a new four-year major at Auburn University may be right down your alley.
This new 20-gauge side-by-side has a sidelever and hand engraving by Bottega Giavonelli.
Lately there has been a resurgence in the popularity of small gauges among fine-gun enthusiasts and collectors, and now several bespoke makers are being commissioned to build these for discerning clients.
Every entry deserves recognition, but in the end this was a contest. Following are brief bios of the three winners and the great prizes they received from our generous sponsors.
