Shotgun Anatomy

Boxall and Edmiston are often asked questions about shotguns and rifles. The questions range in complexity and can be as straight forward as the difference between an over and under and a side by side, and as complicated as an explanation of the benefits of leaf over coil springs.

Over the past several years many of these questions have been asked repeatedly and The Shooting Gazette kindly agreed to help answer these by publishing the most commonly asked in their monthly feature “The Anatomy of a Shotgun”, written by Drew Boxall. Below is a record of the previous questions and features with a summary of each. You can download them by clicking the images or links.

If you have any additional questions for the Boxall and Edmiston team regarding shotguns or rifles then please contact and one of our experts will be in touch.
