Looks a lot like the internals on my old James Lang BLNE with the dickie bird safety except yours, I believe, has better lever work. Pictures are in the thread below:

Hi Steve

Thanks for that. So in a word, no, they're all different which does surprise me. Even though at least a couple must be only a few months apart. Interesting that I assume none have the Deely forend fastener.

Also strange that they all have the Greener crossbolt, when mine uses the Purdey hidden bite. Mine is 30" barrels too.

It came with a hard leather case, but in very poor condition. I'd thought about salvaging it, but the leather is too far gone.
