For well over a century Holland & Holland have been to the fore in the field of innovation for gun, rifle and ammunition design – to such effect that many of its products have become benchmarks by which all others are judged.
In 2002 Holland & Holland introduced the ’Round Action Sidelock’ shotgun, a side-by-side sidelock that incorporates the same materials and craftsmanship used in the making of all Holland & Holland guns and rifles.
“An elegant harmony of form and function, the ‘Round Action Sidelock’ is a true Holland & Holland in every way.”
The styling of the ‘Round Action Sidelock’ is strikingly different to the ‘Royal’, but the essential standards and elements of a true Best London Gun are all there. Strong lightweight chopper-lump barrels, combined with the back-action sidelock mechanism machined from a solid billet of case hardening steel, and features such as intercepting safety sears, automatic ejection and rebounding locks for ease of opening, ensure that this elegantly rounded design is more than able to meet the requirements of a fast handling shotgun.
