Our used gun department handles all makes of best guns. We regularly sell guns by Purdey, Holland & Holland, Boss & Co. McKay Brown and J Rigby. A common service we offer is finding a customer exactly what he is looking for. Many guns and rifles are available to go on the market when asked for, but the people who own them like to keep hold of them. This is down to the fact that over exposure can spoil a guns chances of selling. A good example of this is the Peterson collection guns in USA which have been laying exposed, highly priced and unsold for years now. My gut feeling is they will lie for many more years to come!
Over my years at Westley Richards I have developed a very deep customer base of collectors, through this I know where many different guns and rifles are sitting many of which are ‘quietly for sale’ they are awaiting a call. This pair of Boss & Co. guns are a case in point, a client wanting a good pair of English London game guns by Holland, Purdey or Boss for high bird shooting in UK ( I am making him a pair of ours!) and I was able to offer quite quickly 2 pair of Boss guns, a 90% condition, vintage pre war pair or a recent pair I also offered and alternative, a pair of very nice 20 year old Pair of unused Purdey guns. None of these were actively on the market.
Should you have a special requirement for guns or rifles that you cannot find please do let me know as we keep a database of ‘guns wanted’ and can use our extensive knowledge to locate what you are looking for.
