If you happen to have a yen for a shotgun with a classical bent, Dickinson Arms has news for you. The importer of Turkish smoothbores has expanded its side-by-side Plantation line to include a rather colorful option – a color-case hardened SXR model.
AKUS, who manufactured the gun, didn’t skimp with the new gun, using the old-school bone charcoal method to achieve the unique finish. Furthermore, the English scrollwork on the receiver and 24-line-per-inch checkering on the stock is done completely by hand. A nice touch. Another feature, at least among those who like a bit of a throwback in their side-by-sides, it comes with an option of a double trigger.
Now comes the clutch your wallet part. As expected of SBS shotgun, the color-case hardened Plantation SXR doesn’t come in cheap, Dickinson Arm’s MSRP on the gun is $3,195. But given the look and the hand craftsmanship, it’s not an overwhelming price tag.
Dickinson Arms has introduced a new model to its distinctive and refined Plantation Series of shotguns.

This gun is hand built in Turkey by expert craftsmen who use only the finest materials and components and take great pride in their work. The receiver is finished with true bone-charcoal case hardening that makes each gun an individual and highly functional work of art. The luxurious look and feel of the Plantation SXR is further complimented by Dickinson’s use of premier grade Turkish walnut, featuring fine 24-lines-per-inch hand checkering and a hand-rubbed oil or gloss finish. The ability to select an English, Price of Wales or Pistol Grip stock further enhances the individuality of this gun. Special order upgrades to Grade 3/4/5 walnut stock are also available.
