Benjamin Wild barrels

Post by James M. Warren 374 »

I have acquired an “Alex Henry & Co” 12 bore sidelock double that was rebarreled apparently some time after 1965 by Benjamin Wild & Son at Price St., Birmingham.
The Wild barrel number is #6524 which is numbered to the gun.
I have read that Benjamin Wild & Son has ceased business, I wonder if the records are available to check the barrel number to find when the work was done?

Colin Wild took over the business in 1964 and moved the firm to 55-56 Price Street, they then moved to Unit F/F1 New Buildings, 63 Price Street, Birmingham B4 6JZ. I am sure they closed soon after but I have a telephone number 0121 3592303. Someone trading at New Buildings may be able to help you.
