From Gamefield Classics by Michael McIntosh and Bill Headrick,
“Fame is often fleeting, enduring fame is rare. James Purdey & Sons is by no means the oldest existing gunmaker – but Purdey’s can now (21st Century) rightly claim to have been the worlds’ most famous maker during three different centuries.” Buy J.Purdey & Sons – Best – Extra Finish – 2 bl. set – 12 Ga. in bulk Britain

This gun

A most unusual feature of the original buyer’s order is that, instead of Purdey’s renowned rose and bouquet scroll engraving, the buyer ordered the “extra finish” an upgrade pattern made popular by Holland & Holland on their Royal, with heavy Acanthus scroll engraving which is less conservative and more costly than Purdey’s traditional pattern. Purdey markets it as “Extra Finish.” According to the maker, Walter Warren was the engraver and one of their finest in-houe engravers of that period.

Mechanics

The action is traditional Purdey at its zenith with the famous Purdey self-opening, dual underlug locking system, bushed firing pins, cocking indicators, and automatic top tang safety with SAFE inlaid in gold. The mechanics are excellent with crisp triggers and strong well-timed ejectors and a positive safety. Weight: 6lbs, 6oz with 28″ barrels; 6lbs. with 25″ barrels. It locks up tight and on face with both sets of barrels.

Condition  

The new 28” dovetail barrels have minimum wall thicknesses of .032” in both barrels. The right bore measures .728” internal diameter with .008” constriction. The left bore measures .728” internal diameter with .018” constriction. The older barrels have a minimum wall thicknesses of .026”

The barrels are tight as new on the breech face and on the hinge pin, bores are perfect mirrors, the screws are perfect, and the engraving is sharp and clear and precisely executed. Barrel blue 99%, casehardening colors 80%, wood 99%, checkering 100%, bores as new, Purdey’s usual meticulous fit and finish…all total for just spectacular original condition.
