    Really need more detailed description and photo's if possible . More than likely it was a Birmingham made gun retailed by a now unknown shop / chandler / outfitter / ironmonger .

    Yep, discounted this in Boothroyd as there's no mention there of "son" and the only year given is 1900, but the Sheaf and South Streets tally.
