    You will also find a fair number of fine old guns, that are knock offs of well known firearms makers.

    One letter off, or an intial between names, if the maker used an intial that will be the change.

    Mostly they are fine old guns, some look fine, but there is a reason it is a knockoff.

    Copper,

    Your gun was made by Dudley Williamson, established 1820.


    I don't know what their early address was but they were at 3 Waterloo Road, London from 1906-11 & 5 Waterloo Road from 1912-20.


    They may have carried on in business after that last date it's just that I don't have any information after 1920.


    Actually they may never have moved physically from No. 3 to No. 5 as sometimes the numbering system was re-adjusted on some city streets.


    Regards

    Russell
