Holloway & Naughton Boxlock Date

Post by Mr R V Mobley 201 » Tue Feb 26, 2019 3:23 pm

I have a Holloway & Naughton boxlock and am trying to find out a manufacture date. The serial no. is 88895. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Numbers were at 86,000 in 1935 (Skimin & Wood numbers), and 90,000 in 1941. We can't believe they sold 4,000 to 5,000 guns in those 6 years so regard the figures as unreliable. Never-the-less your gun probably dates to 1939 or 1940.
