John Dickson

PostAuthor: Shamsher » Fri Apr 22, 2011 11:31 pm

saw this beautiful assisted opener, ejector, the round action John Dickson's shotgun
the very name would raise a few eyebrows, rated as one of the finest shotguns ever built........ a classic!

http://www.john-dickson.com/gunroom/new_guns/side_by_side/dickson_round_action.aspx#/userImages/740/round_action.jpg
Many patents were taken out for variations to lock and ejector mechanisms but few actually altered physically the external appearance of the gun. The Edinburgh craftsmen could see the potential in producing a shotgun which would bridge the gap between boxlock and sidelock actions thus evolved the "Round Action" which is a descendant of the old MacNaughton trigger plate action with the locks actually sitting centrally behind the body of the action.

Original patents were obtained in 1880 and related to the unique bar cocking system, operated by the fall of the barrels on opening. In 1887 final patents were granted relating to the ejector mechanism which is operated by strong coil springs on plungers which are cocked on closing the barrels. So began an era in gunmaking producing a shotgun unsurpassed in quality, reliability, elegance and strength.

When we began production of the present series of Round Actions, we considered whether we might improve on the original mechanism bur decided that there was no benefit to be gained from changing anything from the original design.

The Dickson Round Action is available in 12, 16 & 20 gauge.

Available From £37,250.00 excluding VAT.

Shamsher,
Nice to see another surviving Dickson Round-Action!

Your gun was ordered 10th October 1895 with 29 1/2in barrels. It carries the patent use number of 556, meaning it was the 556th Dickson patent gun produced.

Dear Sir,

Not intending to contradict you but this gun sports 28" full choke tubes and bears Sr.No:4784. I would be most obliged if you could possibly shed some light on the source of the information. I would want to know as this gun belongs to me, Samsher is a Cousin of mine who was visiting when the images were clicked.

Regards.

Hi ACD,

Your gun has been re-barrelled with 28in steel barrels by the maker, the proof marks on the barrels you picture are not from 1895 but later. Also, your gun was made with 29 1/2in damascus barrels when new as stated in the records. I know all this, as I have a complete copy of the Dickson gunmakers records and I am contributing all my information into a new book on John Dickson which will be available this year.

By the way, this is a really beautiful gun, I like the carved detonators.
Regards
J-PD
