Boss & Co #4806 Circa 1902
Early Side lock Ejector 12 bore with a round action and single selective trigger and best Joseph Brazier locks.

The makers have kindly confirmed that the gun was completed in August 1902 as the no.2 0f a pair, matched to gun no. 4695. Weight is 6-7. A fine example of a best gun by the most desirable maker. Cased in its leather case with label and some accessories.
