I'm expecting that the consensus will be "unknowable craftsmen from in the trade" but wondering if anyone has any insights regarding the origin of this gun. No maker's marks anywhere, no barrel maker's stamp, nothing on inside of the locks. But maybe there are hints to those of you with more knowledge than I? e.g. shape of the toplever, style of hammer, or engraving?









thanks in advance,
John

The barrels are a nice 3 Iron "Oxford" John, in keeping with the higher quality of the gun. The rib is Twist.

Nope. blank breech face, acanthus scroll on trigger guard and steel heel/toe plates with checkered butt.
Yes, for sure is chambered in 10 ga. Loaded up a box and shot a round of BP skeet.

Proof marks 1868-1875. No chokes right? If there are, they probably were created when it was honed from 12 bore.

Gene, I believe it has always been a tight-bored 10 gauge. The barrel walls remain substantially thick.
