Started as a Rook rifle. Rifled by Adams and Tate, action probably made by Tipping and Lawden.

Re-proofed 1971 as .410 3inch, but I suspect may have been bored out earlier?

Awaiting delivery, so I will have a better idea when I have examined the original proof marks.

I found the Holt's listing ... very nice ... Maybe you can find a gunsmith that can put it back to its original caliber. As you know, original caliber should be marked on the bottom of the barrel.

The original calibre was not shown on the Proof marks on the bottom of the barrel, and may have be on the upper side flats until they were struck down to be engraved MAY GREENER on one side and THE CEDARS ERDLINGTON on the other.

Graham Greener has kindly informed me it was built in 1882, with an octagonal barrel in .380 and was one of 14 identical rifles.
