Westley was the king of export, and many show it!

Terry, I find this gun "with ejectors" to be interesting. Do you know what system it is ?

The "Not for Ball" marked on the barrels was used from 1875 to 1887.

Are there any proof marks on the receiver?

Pete

Nice & interesting find with Westley Richard's bolted Doll's head extension(1862) and ejectors. The additional front frame screw gives the ejectors away. I would guess it to be the work of Deeley in his 1886 ejector.

Kind Regards,

Bret, your version is the one I have seen before, with the rounded cocking levers. I have never seen an ejector gun with the Pittsburgh markings before. I note the 1886 patent date suggested by Raimey. This seems to confuse the issue , some, since all of the ads I have seen seem to have the Pittsburg name ending ca. late 1882. More to learn.

Mr. Hallquist:

If you don't cotton to the 1886 date, then choose Perke's 1878, which was improved as "Southgate" and I think again by Mr. Henry Holland in 1893.

Kind Regards,

Raimey, I am not familiar with what the Perke's patent ejector should look like. Maybe Terry can look at his gun or take a photo of the mechanism. It would "fit" better into my understanding of Pittsburgh marked guns if the ejector was an early one like Perke's. I have not seen ejectors offered in Pittsburgh ads, but they were expensive guns and I'm sure Westley Richards was offering ejectors on their gun ca. 1882, and probably earlier, so ejectors could be had.
