Flippin' 'eck.

Just seen the price of that volume - same as my 'House Of Churchill'.

Need to charge a £5 donation to Help For Heroes would seem fair enough for the info'. :good:

Jumping on the band wagon 😳 could you please tell me when mine was made?

P 62062 

The book lists serial Nos.58282-62821 as made in 1966 by Webley & Scott Ltd.

As Gunman rightly pointed out, W&S took over the manufacturing in 1965.

Hi all just reading the topic about greener gp's. My wife bought me one in 1977 as a birthday pressie from S R Jefferies in Guilford now long gone, apparently it was found in a barn. I think it cost about £40, it is a take down model has a thumb screw on the lhs of the action to remove the barrel, serial no 1382 with a 26in barrel. it stills shoots well albeit with 2 1/2 in chambers. It has been used for anything from geese to charlie. would it be possible to find the date of build. Many thanks Dave

Looking at the book that would be the third year of production, 1924.

I have just bought a Greener double barrel 12 ga. shotgun - S/N 76995

It is hammer-less and an ejector model. My question is when was it made?

Any help would be appreciated.
