Dan bought a 1903 custom at Tulsa with a neat set trigger. Here are pictures of the trigger







Here is a link to the patent

Elliott patent

In James V. Howe's two volume set, the Elliott Brothers are listed as gunsmiths in the directory at the end of volume 1.

Does anyone have any other knowledge about them?

Michael would have had people guessing who made the rifle. I didn't take a photo of the BP but it is the typical G&H trap door type. The scope and mount are real early Noske and I don't know for sure when Noske started making scopes so it may have been added after the rifle was made. Same thing goes for the trigger since it was patented in 1929 and the rifle was probably made in the very early 1920s. We're pretty sure it was made by Seymour Griffin.
I need to thank Bryndon and John for their help in the purchase of this rifle.

Dan

That was a pretty neat 3 party trade. Thanks for letting me in on it - I essentially traded 2 old Ithaca shotguns for a Wunhammer Krag and Dan saved a little money in the process.

There is little doubt that stock is SR Griffin. The forend shape is different than I’ve seen on others of his, it is close enough to not discount it. Another fairly unique feature is that it doesn’t have the checkering divider on the bottom of the forend. Again, there are enough other “signatures” to attribute it to SR Griffin. Very cool rifle Dan!

The 2nd photo from the bottom shows what Bryndon mentioned about the front checkering not having the divider strip, the top being this rifle and the bottom another Griffin rifle with the divider.
The 2nd photo down from the top shows how he handled covering the rear sight barrel spline since this rifle has a military barrel.
The top and 3rd down show how Griffin ran his checkering pattern right to the metal edge.
And the BP photos show a bit of rust that needs to be taken care of.
