I did not see a price either, just an enquire box. Very nice looking shotgun, but I think I will have to click the box at bottom of the page that says add to wish list....

I had high hopes when Mitch posted the link.I had a Purdey muzzle loading rifle in the shop a few years ago Purdey can do damascus. Everything was damascus even the barrel it was beautiful. I will try to find photos I took of it. I was expecting more.

Sorry to disappoint you. I also enjoy seeing some of those old muzzle-loading Purdeys, Mantons, Mortimers, et. al.

Not your fault mitch, Purdey made it Kdanger was probably right it was made for a younger crowd. I'm not in that group anymore.

I watched an episode of 'Pawn Stars' (which I think is mostly contrived) where Rick Harrison's firearms expert took him to the place in London that tests and adds the proof mark to firearms. They had one in the vise and sure enough it was a Purdy. They fired it, it passed, and they marked it. This episode was released within the last month or so.

stock is beautiful. the iron, well, looks like a piece of op art straight out of the gallery in ny city.

I find properly finished damascus beautiful, but if I were spending Purdey level coin on one of their guns I would be telling them what it looked like not vice versa. And that look would not include grotesque swirl patterns on the locks. It would involve my choice of the finest engraving on blank steel background with browned damascus barrels.
