"Acey (who passed away last year at the age of 82) was quite a character," recalls Castor. "He loved high-end guns with pretty wood and fancy engraving, and when we went in London in 1984 one of the first stops he made was the Holland & Holland shop." Lockhart commissioned H&H to make him an utterly unique pair of 20 bore game guns with highly-figured wood and personalized engraving. Both guns feature 26-inch ejector chopper lump barrels, coin finish, 5 lb., 8 oz. weight and choked improved cylinder and improved modified.
Anyone who says guns can't be high art hasn't laid their eyes on this spectacular, custom-made matched pair of Holland & Holland shotguns commissioned in 1984 by a wealthy Texas businessman. These bespoke beauties took three years to complete, and feature some of the most stunning and detailed engraving ever seen on a shotgun.
