Royal Series Over Under Slidelock Shotguns from Dickinson Arms
Luke Cuenco 04.09.21
Highly polished and hand-crafted shotguns have a long history of being cherished heirlooms for families of hunters and collectors alike. Dickinson Arms is producing modern productions of exquisitely crafted slidelock Over/Under Shotguns with their Royal Series. The Royal Series starts out life as a precision CNC-machined piece that is then hand finished and engraved to create a precise yet beautiful piece worthy of display.
12 Gauge & 20 Gauge Royal Series Shotguns from Dickinson Arms
“This stately over & under shotgun combines eye-catching good looks with unparalleled performance. The Royal Series features a precision five-pin hand-removable side lock mechanism with safety sears, a CNC-machined receiver milled from a solid block of molybdenum chrome steel, heavy-duty hammer springs and CNC-machined internal components. The receiver is offered with an exclusive bone-charcoal case hardened finish or beautiful English scroll engraving. In the Dickinson tradition of old-world craftsmanship, the Royal Series’ premier grade Turkish walnut stock and fore-end are beautifully finished and hand fitted.“

Dickinson Arms is rather unique in that they CNC-machine many of their parts, but choose to hand finish them. This allows a certain amount of quality and consistency when it comes to the critical functions of the firearm such as the ejection mechanisms, shape of the stock, and internal components; however, the hand-finished aspects of the shotguns also allows each shotgun to still be unique and carry a hand-crafted quality to them meaning they work just as great as displace pieces as well as useful tools.
Dickinson is offering these beautiful shotguns beginning at an MSRP of $5,465 and are offering several different styles of engraving that you can find on their website here, or if engraving isn’t your style, Dickinson Arms also offers case hardened models. For the ultra-discerning customer, Dickinson Arms also offers custom shotgun design and construction so that every aspect can be tailored to your specific tastes.
