I have a model 1910 SL that I am interested in finding more information about.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  S/N 19672.  Engraved with Belgian proof marks.

Yes I have… at least a few hundred of them.  The Belgian and the British governments did not trust that any U.S. manufactured firearm was proofed tested to their standards, so they required all foreign manufactured firearms be submitted for proof testing.

What are the rules for individuals coming to the Cody show as far as bringing things to possibly sale or trade?

Scott,

As long as it is a Winchester or Winchester related item, or an otherwise collectable (e.g. Sharps, Marlin, Colt, etc.) you can bring it to the show, It first must be inspected & tagged at the door.

As far as the British proofhouses went ALL firearms had to be proofed regardless of country of origin. No discrimination against any particular country. Although I have seen several firearms stamped  NOT ENGLISH MAKE which is a little snotty. One benefit of proofing is that a lot of firearms are modified at some point in their lives by folks who may or may not know what they are doing. Proofing of firearms at least ensures they are safe to fire.
