Re: Westley Richards made or made on Westley Richards patents

Westley Richards made or made on Westley Richards patents

Came across this c bolt Richards action and was curious to see if it is a Richards or made on a Richards patents? The gun is marked Isaac Hollis & sons London. Interesting thing, the inside action is marked S. Mills (Samuel Mills the actioner from Weaman st.?) https://i.ibb.co/vPxqC0N/6-F98-ED64-D5-...

Re: Rogers patterned or patented Top Lever action

John thank you, in the interim I did a search and found a post from google for the site regarding Rogers patent, I wasn’t sure if there were examples readily handy. I will continue my search!
