Just not sure. I can't yet get past that it could be a British action, but I am wrong quite often.

Those >>prongs<< are >>Cocking Dogs<<.

Lots of good info here on a well maintained site.

I have seen Greener's w/ a 1/2 pipe side frame reinforcement. So do you own a W.W. Greener w/ a semi-circle side frame reinforcement? Could you post an image?

A quick Google shows loads similar from WW Greener

Actually Harrods do have a number of thier sales ledgers for guns they sold - I don't know if its necessarily a complete collection. They are stored in Central London in their main archives office. I have been into the building and gone through the ledgers myself.

However, it would be a major task trying to find an individual gun sale where a specific date is unknown.

If the repository is where I think it is, it is difficult to get to in the >>Green Zone<<. One has to be truly focused on going to that location & that location only.

Harrod's Lunchbox Gun


See, I just don't see the side-frame reinforcement on the Greener. Too, the rear pin isn't visible, or not present, on the Harrod's.

Greener have written back to say that they never made any firearms for Harrods and all their guns are Birmingham proofed… so that confirms that then 🤣👍

Many years ago, I had a boxlock with the Harrod's name. When I enquired at their gun department, the fellow said he thought it could have come from Hollis, Bentley, and Playfair, but he wasn't sure and had no documentation. I'd guess , over the years, Harrod's had many suppliers for their guns.

Searching on Internet Gun Club indicates they have some serialization info. Posting on their forum will generate a response.

Good Luck
