PERTHSHIRE.- A scarce pair of 12-bore assisted opening single trigger sidelock ejector guns by Boss & Co will be among the highlights of Gavin Gardiner Ltd.’s annual auction of Fine Modern and Vintage Sporting Guns, which will be held at the world-famous Gleneagles Hotel, Auchterarder, Perthshire, Scotland at 6pm on Monday, August 25, 2014.

Made in 1903, these examples have the rare selective version of their classic single trigger mechanism and are estimated to fetch £12,000-£18,000.

Gavin Gardiner noted: “Anyone that knows me, knows that I am huge admirer of Boss & Co, I have been privileged to sell many examples of the great London maker’s work including a collection that belonged to Eric Clapton, as well as the original prototype of their renowned over and under shotgun.”

He continues: “The important element to these is the selective single trigger, a very rare feature as well as the slim rounded frames and I am delighted to be offering them for sale in my Flagship annual auction, which is being held at Gleneagles, just a month before all eyes will be on its great Golf Courses for the 2014 Ryder Cup.”

A further pair of 12-bore assisted opening sidelock ejector guns by Boss & Co, which were built in 1924, are estimated at £20,000-£30,000.
