Extremely rare pair of medium bore lightweight guns of very high quality. ‘Royal Brevis’ is Holland & Holland’s top model with 26½” barrels. The 16 bore is perfectly balanced for 28 g. shot loads.
H&H’s self opening system operates with a coil spring mounted below the chambers. The spring is automatically cocked when the gun is opened. This makes it faster and easier to close the gun than with Purdey’s self-opening system.
