That one has Mark’s name all over it………Laugh

Pity, all the proof marks on the barrel, seems to be a bit excessive.

Can’t trust those Yanks to make safe firearms!  British protectionism…which in the end didn’t save the British gun industry from foreign competition.

This 1895 shotgun was at our Cody Show a couple of years ago.  Definitely a most interesting gun!  I wonder if they’d let me borrow it to throw in the truck and bounce up the mountain to make a video.  Laugh  Mark

Great idea, Mark. I was hoping I could shoot a round of skeet with it. I even know a guy that can load up some brass shells, pretty sure they won’t want me shooting Holy Black in it, tho.

I wonder if Annie and Frank were in England around this time with Cody?  If John Fox owned it there is probably some truth in the story.
