Hope this is not the gun recently sold in Ontario. I had an interest in this gun. By personal inspection, I found that 2 1/2 inch chambers had been extended to 3.0 inch [out of proof] and the ejectors did not work [obvious signs of tampering]. For this reason I did not make an offer for same.

I am not sure if this is the gun you are talking about. As I said it has not arrived as yet. From the picture I supplied do you have any input on the maker?

Pete M provided an excellent history of Lyon & Lyon of Calcutta, see earlier post.
The gun that I inspected had Birmingham proof marks. As I recall the proof diameter measured 9 inches from the breech was within proof tolerances,[ My memories is not perfect but as I recall the proof mark stamped on the barrels was 13/1 and based on this mark the diameter of the barrels should and did measure between .720 -.728 diameter]
The gun that I inspected was of medium quality, nice stock and case. Did not record any details because I was "put-off" because of the lengthened chambers.
If this is indeed your gun I would have a competent gunsmith inspect and if feasible conduct a proof test for possible use with low pressure shells.

I read the post regarding Lyon and Lyon. There is some various information available elsewhere as well. I have seen a double rifle by Holland And Holland with the lyon and lyon name attached but few other examples
