I have recently got a “I Hollis & sons” 20 gauge side by side shotgun from an old family member. I’m just trying to chase some more info on them. I can’t seem to find much info on them. There was an old story that an old fella told me about the gun. It was the guards gun of the old time card games at captains flat NSW Australia.

In the early 60s I used to visit a gun shop in Newcastle, NSW, owner had one of those WW1 Mauser anti tank rifles in the window. I was after a 20 g he told me they used to sell em as spider guns for harvesting some of the larger spiders down there...;)

There was a post not long ago about a Hollis. I have pictures of the gun. What action is yours? Boxlock, sidelock or false sidelock. They made all three.
