Morning,

Want to establish the history of a shotgun I brought. I have a feeling it might have a bit of sporting history due to recent persistent interest from a 3rd party.

Can anyone offer any direction.

Appreciated

Whats the make and model of the shotgun? If its a famous make, then there might be some original manufacturers' records remaining indicating the original customer. If its a mass-produced gun, then there is probably zip.

I have the reference books for all the English makers if that helps.

You could e mail Bill Harriman c/o the shooting times, he loves this sort of thing. Many company records still exist despite the war losses and a few are available online with US companies. Makers Name?

Thanks gents,

I wont post the make and model on line, because it will ping up in a search if someone else is trying to locate it.

Will look into some of these leads tho.. so thanks again.
