simon west: Diamonddog I work for boss ,you will never buy a boss , because we don't deal with racist assholes 

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.
