Boxall and Edmiston at the British shooting show
2014 is well underway and the first show of the season is rapidly approaching. The British shooting show is fortunately an indoor event and the Boxall and Edmiston team are attending for the second year running.
The Boxall and Edmiston stand is in Hall 2 near main entrance 1, our position is excellent and you will struggle to miss us as we are on the main walkway apposite one of our media partners Field and Rural life. Walk into Hall 2, turn left and we’re behind our colleagues at Browning.
This is the first show to see the fully finished round action 20 bore which had its first outing (in the white) at the CLA last year. Since then interest in the model has been strong and the final engraved version is proving popular with new and existing clients.
The square sideplated 20 bore is being built for launch at the CLA 2014, it uses the same lock system as the round action 20 bore which has been fully developed and tested over the past year. The action shape of the square is reminiscent of the 12 bore versions but the smaller body is more defined with a more pronounced bolster. The stock shape and engraving pattern are currently being developed and will be a clear relation to its 12 bore cousin.
The first review of the 20 bore has been carried out by Shooting Times’, Lewis Potter and will be published in the coming months (click here to see last years look at Boxall and Edmiston written by Lewis). More reviews are scheduled throughout the year including a look at the gun by Mike Yardley, who worked with the Boxall and Edmiston team on the 12 bore over and under, which has been the muse for the 20’s shape, balance and handling.
We look forward to seeing you at the show, if you have any questions for the team do not hesitate to ask. The new “Ask the experts” series written by the Boxall and Edmiston team started in Sporting Shooter in January, you can speak with any of our craftsmen if you have questions and we’ll try to answer them on the day with a comprehensive follow-up answer published in the magazine.
