Re: Alfred Davis (J. Blanch)

Thanks John for your help! One down, a thousand more to go! Just kidding! When I get my Davis all cleaned up I’ll post some pics and get a few from the catalog once it arrives! One cool thing, the lady from the Ilford society mentioned the building at 4 Hampton road, hadn’t really changed over time.

Re: British proof marks and what they mean

Don't mind the number was posted in the add on the internet. W488 is the three digit number. I really like the gun, solid light weight and handles nicely.

Re: British proof marks and what they mean

Thank you very much for the reply! On the hook its a hvac tape, the action was a touch loose with the forearm off and the tape shored it up. Interesting that it has a proof date in the 50's. Its a BSA made for the RAF and I think those were only made from 40 to 45.

British proof marks and what they mean

Was curious to see what these proof marks mean, or what loads can be used, I do have some H&H 67mm loads would these be safe in 2 1/2 inch chambers?
