The Type-I Side-by-Side represents the pinnacle of Thomas Ferney & Co.'s shotgun line and it's "Best Gun" offering. These masterpieces are made one at a time without thought to mass marketability.

These works of art are meticulously crafted by hand to be the very finest examples of gun craft available.
Conceived specifically with the upland game hunter in mind, fielding the Type-1 shotgun is akin to piloting a purpose built sports car. In the design process, special attention was given to feel and balance of this shotgun which was optimized for the smaller gauges preferred by upland enthusiast.
The pair of demibloc chopper lump barrels that make up the Type-1 are truly worthy of recognition as works of art in their own right. Born of premium drop forged steel, lined with hard white chrome and finished by hand with the traditional rust bluing method, the barrels represent the melding of modern materials and ancient artisan craft. With painstaking attention to every detail, the barrels have been drilled to exact tolerances, honed for accuracy, polished and then low temperature silver soldered to the concave center "game" rib. This guns barrel was sent for independent proof testing and received certification at 1370 BAR and for steel shot at the famous proof house in Eibar Spain.
The small frame round-body receiver of the Type-1 shotgun is finished in case hardened color and it boasts near 100% coverage in detailed hand engraving. The sleek line of rounded receiver is further enhanced by a beautifully hand sculpted smooth transition straight stock.
The silky smooth 5-Pin action is robust made in the Holland & Holland style with hand detachable side plates, gas escape valves, double triggers, automatic safety and selective ejectors. The hammers and sears are finished in gold plate as are the double articulated triggers. The inside of the lock plates have been brightly polished then jeweled to produce a sparkling finish. Lock pins are finished with a combination of gold plating and bluing, to produce a beautiful watch movement like appearance.
