    Old ‘PARDY’ hammer shotgun tidy up

    I have an ancient shotgun I’m giving a clean/tidy up, on top of the rib there is engraved ‘PIONEER PARDY MAKER’ and just behind the hammers there is the word ‘PARDY’

    Any idea of age, manufacturer and rarity/value?

    He nui to ngaromanga, he iti to putanga.

    You depart with mighty boasts, but you come back having done little.
    Sounds like a typical hunting trip !

    Pics?

    What is stamped under the barrel at the breech end?
    Cats have nine lives-which makes them ideal for experimentation...

    Ta Muzz’s,
    I’ll have a look under the barrels later, it’s a hammer gun with a Damascus (twist steel & iron) barrels.

    And sorry guys, it’s a ‘PARDY’ - not a HARDY! Bloody useless auto correct!! (And useless of me not to notice...)

    'Pardy' is just a knock-off of 'Purdey'. The gun will a low-quality cheap item, probably Belgian or Spanish and of very little value.

    Thanks gundoc, pretty much what I expected.

    Never mind, it makes an interesting wall hanging.
