The event is inked into the diaries of serious collectors of guns and rifles, and since 2009 has been held by former Sotheby’s firearms specialist Gavin Gardiner.

This year’s sale, on August 28, will include around 200 lots of modern and vintage sporting guns, rifles and accessories from 1860 to the present day.
