Hi John,

In addition to No. 5909, I recently acquired another CW Andrews BLE— No. 5105 — as part of a parcel of 5 guns at auction (must stop bidding while drinking). Would you have a date for this one?

Other guns acquired were four 12 bore BLNEs:

William Lee, no. 2037; Salter & Varge, no. 5355; BSA, no. 34892; Midland Gun Co. no. 76664

If you have any date details for these, I would be grateful.

The C W Andrews is about 1907, not very specific I'm afraid. William Lee, about 1892, again not very specific. Salter & Varge - no idea, no serial numbers at all. BSA - 1910-1911 but serial numbers not very reliable. Midland Gun Co - 1910 about. If you don't drink you will die !
