Are records available for English William Cashmore shotguns. Would be interested in checking on a serial number.

Quoting David Baker, from the March 2010 edition of the U.K. magazine,Sporting Gun:- "I once started to try and find out more about the Cashmore firm,but gave up when I discovered that they were more of a clan than a simple family.I did discover that they were origionally Black Country nail makers,who became pistol barrel forgers and then gunmakers. Like others, they made a name for themselves,but went further than most,with their live pigeon guns and patented action." based on Davids comments, it will be interesting to see if any records outside of catalogues and case labels exist.

Did the nailmakers patent the "Cashmore Nitro"? There must have been someone in the clan that had either some engineering expertise or a good sense of humor. Anyone seen a Nitro lately?

Eightbore I pictured a Nitro in that thread about Best guns and boxlocks. They are neat guns.

I believe they were active in the US market, and especially in Australia, where pigeon shooting etc. was very popular. Part of the "clan" moved there.
