JOHN WILKES  Presentation 28

John Wilkes #15215 Circa 1986
 

A 28 Bore Exhibition Grade side lock ejector with assisted opener on a Holland&Holland mechanism. The quality of workmanship on this gun as all Wilkes guns is definitely as good as any other available in London today. The elegant execution of gold rose clusters and fine scroll brought Don Simmonds into the well respected class of engravers presently available in the London trade. Simply described as a complete collection by itself. The highly figured straight English stock measures R/L 15 x 1 1/2 x 2 1/4 x 1/4 cast off to a checkered butt. Being tool-less and also clue-less of 28 bore measurements, I assume it is reasonable to claim that a recently London proofed and unused gun is still as such.
