ShotgunsOver and UnderUsed£ 550 ONO
A very good Lincoln No2 ov/un 12g sideplate shotgun.
This has hardly been shot as is still very tight, with a very nice high figure stock.
Part of a review left by a pro.
I was bored so i thought i would do a small review on our latest toy, The Lincoln No:2 series over and under Trap,Skeet, Universal, Game s/t to give it it's full title phew that was a mouthful we purchased the gun s/h from Bamfords at ecclestone and it came in a leather motor case with 2 sets of barrels 30" and 26" (well near enough) or at least their metric equivelent. Our example was in excellent condition and looks barley used, on our first try the gun feels well balanced with both sets of barrels but so far all our shooting has been sporting and DTL with the 30" trap barrels. Like i said the gun balances nicely and fit's well with the longer barrels not feeling as heavy as they looked, they also slowed down my swing slightly giving me longer on the target which felt strange at first coming from a 26" barrel Benelli M2, however this slower swing seems to have done me no harm as with my first outing i managed 90% of 75 clays one thing that surprised me was the lack of felt recoil which was very low indeed and almost the same as my Benelli and much less than our previous o/u which was a very nice Bettensoli diamond. The gun shoots slightly higher than i'm used to which allows you to put the bird actually on the bead fore sight and that results in a perfect kill. this is really nice as you can actually see the target right up until your shot hit's the clay. The gun is very well made by the Rizini clan in the bresica region of italy where most of the guns are made and sold here in the UK through the David Nickerson (tathwell) distributors who also sell guns with the Ugartechea name as well as some hand made shotguns with a name that has left me for the moment ,sorry.
the action although quite plain in it's decoration, is attractive enough and well made, as is the fit of wood to metal. The action is quite tight with out being overly so and the safety is in the usual place i.e. on top of the action behind the locking lever and incorporates the barrel selector switch, so you can choose which barrel fires first, the gun has 3"chambers and also has selective ejectors in that they only eject the spent cartridge after say firing only one barrel. the ejectors are nice and strong and remove the empty cases with gusto
I have to say that I am impressed with the general build quality and i can't see any weakness that could identify any future problems. I can therefore heartily recommend Lincoln shotguns as good lower priced well made guns which should last a lifetime and give a great deal of pleasure....Read full description
