Did this video help you?

saminthescamp: Neat video

TexHun92: You forgot the Scottish gun maker Charles Ingram. He made some of the finest target rifles and sporting shotguns in the late 1800's. I just recently acquired a C.Ingram double barrel 12gauge side lever, Beautiful example of a fine gun.

Sceadugenga: Beautiful guns, a masterpiece of engineering. Something really special about these guns, all of the top makers included, absolute epitome of skills from those that make them. I know, as I did my 5 year apprenticeship as a stocker with Boss & Co in the mid 60's. I'm pleased to see that these guns and the skills of the gunmakers have survived. The Boss guns we made were the price of a house, my wages weren't much more than the cost of the rail fare to work and a bottle of sherry as a Christmas bonus. Sadly, as a result I left after completing my apprenticeship, as did most of the apprentices (action makers, barrel makers etc) that were there at the same time. It was a real old fashioned experience though, the gunshop was on the south side of Southwark Bridge and very old style with huge leather drive belts running a whole range of electric power tools, it was like something out of a pickleens novel. Health and Safety experts would be horrified in todays world. 

tomsterism: Excellent piece. Well done. I learnt much!

MrSottobanco: Funny how your other videos come across as being from a typical obsessed gamer. This one shows sophistication.

diamonddog257: I can afford a 'London Worst'...I mean;...uhhhh...-did he ever shoot those dogs?..... etc.....what I find funny is that Purdey has a doc. on you-tube....while there is nothing on Boss....great vid, thx

Ben White: Great video mate, very informative however felt you could have commented on how Purdey invented the top lever on modern day shotguns and how Boss invented the hammer-less box lock:)

jamoore3192: That was great!!

albionsseed: Vey nicely done! Excellent visual continuity, good choice of background music and informative.

chaparral285: Anybody ever heard of WH.Thompson&Co Makers Birmingham ?

purdey72: Very Good film. Well Done !

aapeagle: Beautfiul video! I'm surprised by the small number of views... Being a shooting sportsman myself, I sincerely appreciate the elegance and informative quality with which this video was made. Unfortunately, in today's society most people think awful thoughts when they think guns-forgetting that there exists a legitimate/sporting clutlure in the gun world that cares more for aesthetics than cultural fanaticism. Bravo!

dunkintheshed: Really great

Lord Bacon: Jolly nice.

lovatscout1: proper great vid very well done

foodjunky163: Anyone else keep thinking of lock,stock and 2 smoking barrels lol?
