I know they never made many guns. What about their boxlocks? Did they make them or Birmingham?

I shoot with an older gentleman who owns a Woodward boxlock. Not sure when it was made but it is definatly a Webly and Scott action.
I would say the engraving is on par with a WS gun. In other words not all that well done. In fact the gun I am speaking of was once featured in Shooting Sportsman and the article re-counted the restoration on the gun. He (my friend) bought the gun years after the fact.
G&H had a 20 bore Woodward boxlock for sale and there are two on GI at this time.

I would guess that any Woodward boxlocks likely weren't made by Woodward--as suggested above. Probably made "in the trade". Maybe finished by Woodward, maybe not.

Marketing.
Trying to create future, more profitable, up line, customers.

But, the market resistance was very strong.

And continues to be.

H&H eventually purchased W&C Scott (1985), although that relationship lasted for less than 5 years. But that did permit H&H to put some nice boxlocks on the market, before H&H itself was purchased by Chanel in 1989.

Larry,
I remember the Northwood and Cavalier models, nice but I thought over priced for the name alone.

Karl--They made some improvements over the basic Model 700. But prices did take a jump. Somewhat like what's happened to the Spanish gun trade recently. At which point a lot of people start looking hard at the used market.
