Ten of the world's finest shotguns

A fine shotgun combines beauty, ergonomics and durability into one elegant steel and walnut package that will last for generations. These are the highlights from Griffin & Howe, one of the nation's leading dealers in fine guns.

 <b>Boss O/U</b>
8. Boss O/U
English makers are known for their side by side shotguns (barrels arranged alongside one another), but the Boss O/U (barrels stacked vertically) is a graceful exception to the rule, and first appeared in 1909.

This 1925 example is a beautiful between-the-wars gun. Light in weight for easy carrying in the field, this gun is richly decorated with the rose and scroll pattern typical of British "Best" grade guns.

Price: $48,000
Gauge: 12
