Best boxlocks were invariably ejector guns, although non-ejectors can be found built on ‘best’ actions, probably as special orders. Ejectors will often increase the value of a boxlock by as much as fifty per cent, and that is why it is still occasionally profitable to convert a good quality non-ejector gun to an ejector. Side plates are fitted to add the style and elegance of a sidelock without the complication. They are no more than dummy lock plates and to some possible purchasers an affectation; there is also no doubt that, as some of the work is so neat, a number of guns have been purchased in the mistaken belief that they are real sidelocks.
If that is the case, then so do bar locks, as the only difference is the cut-out for the mainspring. Back-action locks that engage into the bar may be marginally stronger as they form, in effect, a support plate from the action. The advantage of this type of back-action lock is that there is no cut-out in the bar of the action for the main spring. This is why many powerful doubles have back action bar locks allied to a long top strap, which, in the case of double rifles, may be carried up and on to the comb.
The archetypal shotgun that most members of the general public will recognize is the double-barrelled gun with the barrels laid side by side – the most simple form of repeater. As a boy I rarely heard anyone refer to a ‘side-by-side’; it was simply a double- as distinct from a single-barrel gun. It was only the rise in popularity of the gun with superimposed barrels, the over-and-under (or, as an old customer of mine insists, the ‘up-and-under’), that led to the need for differentiation. Interestingly the over-and-under pre-dated the side-by-side, usually in the form of the turnover gun, on which one lock served each barrel as it was rotated to the top position.
