Drop at heel: 2-1/2″, drop at comb: 1-1/4″. Barrel Weight: 3lb 6oz. Total Weight: 7 lbs. 8 oz. LOP: 15″. 2 1/2" chambers. Straight English grip. Black rubber Decelarator pad. Nicely engraved birds on lock plates. Ebony forend insert. Top rib stamped Fred'k Williams London & Birmingham. Nitro proof 1-1/8 oz stamps.

Condition:
Barrels retain about 80% original blue, thinning on sides, with a number of light marks and some flecking. Stock is uncheckered at wrist with some wood filler at the head. Bores are very good. Action is tight. Barrels ring.

History:
Frederick William Williams established his business in 1881 at 49-50 Weaman Street, Birmingham. Between 1886 and 1890 he moved to 32-33 Weaman Street, which became known as the Birmingham Gun Works. Between about 1913 and 1917 the name of the firm changed to Frederick Williams, and in about 1937 to Frederick Williams (Gunmakers) Ltd. Prior to adopting limited liability, the firm claimed a London address, possibly Frederick Williams of 3 Broad Street Station, Liverpool Street. The firm closed in 1947.  

The barrel proof marks and history would place this gun in the 1925-1937 range.  

Priced at $995 free shipping included.

No checkering on the buttstock at the grip-- does this mean the original buttstock was replaced?? RWTF
