Well, House of Hardy is well known for making the best (and most expensive) fishing gear in the world. But I dont think they manufacture firearms, do they??

Thanks everybody. Im sorry that i couldnt visit this site for quite some time. I got information about my gun from some other source which i would like to share. It says hardy brothers alnwick got guns manufactured from reputed gun manufacturers of burmingham and got their name engraved on them. Now from the proof marks its clear that my gun has been made in burmingham but who made it?

As per my knowledge there were two reputed firms in burmingham gun trade
1. Webley and Scott
2. Westley Richards

As my gun does not resemble Webley and Scott I (hopefully) presume that my gun has been made by Westley Richards. My gun has got a greeners crossbolt and the opening mechanism on the fore end resembles that of Westley Richards Im enclosing a few pics of my gun and hope to receive opinion from the community.

Looks like a rare vintage gun.

Where did you get it man?

Seems to be a very nice gun Masood Sahib.
Hardy of Alnwick are basically the top manufacturers of fishing gear in the world, however, anything that comes with their name means top quality and a high end product (normally, very very expensive :)).
Congrats to you Sir.
