I wonder if it's a W. Richards and they've interpreted that incorrectly.

All makers except Boss seemed to be willing to bring in any gun for the customer and finish it and put their name on it. If Remington brought in a Model 21 and finished it and put their name on it we would be horrified but I cannot count the number of gun clearly made by one maker that was sold with another's name of it. H&H seemed to shot and regulated a lot of low grade box locks, but they all have that H&H name on their sides.

I own a couple of the H&H. References I have indicate that Holland had three levels. Holland & Holland, H&H Shot and Regulated, and H&H Shot and Inspected. There may be more.

Lately there have been several T-prefixed serial number WRs for sale, all advertised as “pigeon” guns. One in particular was a very high conditioned 32” gun. They all appeared to me to be Scott made guns. How would such a thing be valued relative to an in-house made WR?

The photos posted by Argo44 are all Scott & Baker 716 patent and the original post's gun is not that. I suspect that it is an action bought in by WR from elsewhere in the Birmingham trade and finished by them. No problem with that, horses for courses!

Thanks Toby. And you are one of the very few gun sellers/restorers/historians, who actually posts the patents present on your guns. I think though that the patent is 1878 - 761. . not 716. smile Obviously a typo.
