Does anyone know of a good close up pic of a Dickinson trigger plate action, removed from the action body, of course?

I've haven't had mine out ........ yet. Doug (PA24) took one apart years ago and had very high praise for the workmanship, but I can't recall him posting a picture of it.

beautiful workmanship interesting the hammers appear a light colored metal and the bridles are case colored. I would have guessed the hammers would be case hardened also.

Whoa!
Let's do a spell check first.
Dickson or Dickinson?
The pictures are of a Dickson trigger plate action from the famous Scottish maker.
There is a world of difference between the two!

The top photo sure looks like a John Dickson & Son, Edinburgh.
The small bottom photo is a ? James MacNaughton &Son ?, a better (larger) photo would help.

No spell check needed. I spelled it correctly ..... DICKINSON. I am well aware of the differences between a Turkish made Dickinson and a Scottish made Dickson.

Thanks for the Dickson pics.

Still looking for a good pic of the Dickinson trigger plate action.

Thanks all, SRH
