The Most Beautiful Guns I have Seen: Two Bespoke Le Page Shotguns up for Auction

    While we have come so far with modern manufacturing, it would seem that we have lost many of the old skills. Rock Island Auction company is soon to offer two two Le Page shotguns that showcase the true art of gun-making from the 1800’s. There are precious few people left who can craft such remarkable weapons.

    Just gawk at them with me. The level of craftsmanship is truly astounding.
