My W&C. Webley& Scott have this concealed cross bolt system. I have tried to find the name with no success.

Can you tell me the system name?

I think its called the "Greener" cross bolt which was used by several manufacturers. My Baikal IZH54 SxS has one.

Now I come to look more closely I see that its a concealed bolt as you explained and in that case the Greener type is probably incorrect.

It is still the same mechanism as a standard Greener bolt. The left side of bolt is cut off short and the hole through which it was installed is filled with a metal plug.

Thanks for your words, but is not the Greener cross bolt system. There's no filled hole on the left fence (side) as you can see.

A concealed or hidden 3rd(third) fastener typically denotes an upper rung or higher echelon offering.

Always superb info here:

Now you didn't post an image of the breech so I assume it is the longer Greener(circular) extension

I have previously owned a Thomas Wild hammer gun with this feature. Looking at my Webley & Scott book it does seem to feature in a number of their guns from the hammer gun era and beyond. Not all that common on other guns from what I see. Lagopus…..

If memory serves me correct, some Lindner-Daly A&D Body actions(like Diamond Quality, etc.) had the square version of the Greener.
