Olympic Hopeful...

Looks like it could be a heavy black powder fowling piece maybe a 10 or even an 8 bore by the length of the barrels.

I shoot long barrels 30 or 32 ins but they look short compared to those.

When under previous ownership Lincoln had a OU 10 bore. The most recent I have seen is the side by side AYA Matador 10 gauge. The trouble is they all go about 9 lbs plus which is a hell of a weight to lug on the marsh. These days I still use my 12 for duck and geese but for game I went for a light OU 20 bore about three years ago and wish I had done it earlier.

I'm the same, 30 or 32 max I once had a go with a 10g and once was  was enough, I can't see me ever trying an 8g, in fact I don't know anyone who owns one


Well you could Griff, 

It would appear that they build big blokes on the Kent Marshes. Perhaps they come from those lost miners who worked Betshanger, and Snowdon  who once above ground longed for the wild Kent estuaries.

That 4 bore is rather nice, John Forsey is the North Kent specialist wildfowling shop, tends to have a lot of big stuff in there. Which reminds me I have to take a 10 bore up to him at some point to see if he is interested in it.
