Special Edition Gun in the Field Magazine
A very special edition of the Boxall and Edmiston 12 bore sideplated
over and under has been reviewed and featured in the Field magazine. The
gun was produced especially for the article and features Charles Darwin
and the Iron Bridge.
The idea behind the gun was to demonstrate the capabilities of the
Boxall and Edmiston engraving techniques and how there are many benefits
to using a laser. The use of Charles Darwin’s image was chosen as he
was born in our local town of Shrewbury and his work on the evolution of
man, in an infinitesimally small way, has some resonance to our
advancements in gunmaking. The Iron bridge is also attributed with being
the birthplace of industry and as we continue to develop gunmaking in
our industry we felt it apt.
Thank you to everyone at the Field magazine, particularly Mike Yardley for writing the article and Jonathon Young for his ongoing support.
More special editions are planned and we will bring news of those as they come to fruition.
