Greener GP dating

Recommended Posts

Hi

I have just purchased a 12g Greener GP shotgun.  It is in good condition and fires well>

According to the proof marks it is from between 1922 and 1954.  The serial number stamped on the receiver is 4039.  Under the forehand there is a T8 stamp on one side and a script u on the other.

Could anyone please help me to date this gun.

 

Cheers

According to Nigel Brown's 'British Gunmakers Vol.2', that serial number puts it between 1925 & 1926 if that's any help. 

I will have a closer look later in Graham Greener's 'the Greener Story' but a cursory glance shows no more information than the above.

A good friend of mine got one recently and I gave it a try. What a great piece of kit, lots of gun for the money! Only a matter of time before I cave in and buy my own.
