In a way I feel it is appropriate, that as we publish our second edition of the Bicentenary book, we are also in a position to finally deliver our Bicentenary ‘Ovundo’! This is gunmaking deliveries at their very swiftest! I regret, I can’t actually remember if this gun ever had a remote chance of making the Bicentenary year, if it did it has certainly failed miserably!
With that admission made, I would like to thank the client both for his most generous commission and also for his patience whilst we made the gun, I know his fuel bill for visits during the period were huge that I even, at one point, offered him an apron and full access to the workshops to supervise the job!
The ‘Ovundo’ is a special gun for us and we only ‘give one out’ very rarely. The gun is a hand detachable lock, single selective trigger gun which has been engraved by Paul Chung.
