«And then there is the Sidelock, which is our flagship. It features a newly designed ejector system –patent pending– and has all the best balance and performance. As with the traditional side by sides. There are real differences between even very fine guns and “best” guns, some readily visible, others quite subtle. Fine guns must always be made of high-quality materials, be soundly designed and reliable possess excellent weight distribution and good balance and be stocked in quality walnut with a layout that provides not only beauty but also structural strength. A best gun, by contrast must possess the same utilitarian attributes yet also elegant, harmonious proportions -a certain purity of lines, in other words -and be finished perfectly inside and out. »
