In regard to the Webley & Scott 410 pistol I described previously I have determined it was made in 1935, shipped to Switzerland in 1935 to Johann Baettig. Noted in Webley Book #304. It is not listed in the blue book of gun values or Modern Gun Values and is extremely rare. I cannot find it listed in any gun value book but it is pictured in the W&S 1933 catalog.It is the same configuration as the W&S target pistol.

lhave a U.S.A.built harrington richardson 410 ejector single barrel
model is 410-44cal made between 1916-1921 my question is can l fire modern cartridges through
this gun.

Admin reply: In thew first instance, it depends on the condition of the gun. Have a gunsmith check it. If the gun smith decalres it safe, then, as noted in another answer, these guns were made with a 2 inch chamber that accepted either the two inch .410 or the various brass cased .44 shot cartridges. The 2 inch .410 is hard to find in the US, but the aliminum cased CCI .44 shotshells contain 1/3 ounce of 9s and probably will work, too. These shells are loaded to pressures comparable to the old brass cased .44s. As noted elsewhere, the ALOOF, etc. section has a couple of articles addressing this. Also, pictures of my handssome self and the rest of ALOOF.MW

G'day all

I really like the website, and have found it quite informative. However, I am still stuck.

I have recently acquired a spanish made "Imperial" SxS in .410 bore. It has 28 inch Barrels with #3 chambers choked Full and Something Not Quite Full, and a nicely colour case-hardened receiver embelished with what I think is meant to be engraving. However, I have no idea when it was made, or by whom.

There were some Belgian doubles made around the turn of the (last) century using the Imperial brand label, but this piece is, I'm reasonably sure, post WWII.

If anyone can be of help, I would be most appreciative, thanks.

I have a Webley & Scott, 410 pistol single barrel, 6 3/4 ", in a presentation box with a brass plate engraved .410 pistol, London England. Inside the lid is a wooden holder for 6 shells. It is serial #1623 and I have been unable to find any info on it. I found a Webley & Scott 1933 catalog reprint that says there is one in the catalog. I have not received it yet but I have been unable to find any information on the gun anywhere on the net.

Morning all,

I'm from South Africa. I own a s-by-s AyA in 410. Typical of the older 410's it is choked very tightly in both bbls.

I am looking for information on ways to load ammo for it that will allow better spread of the pattern. Are there "spreader" wads available for the 410? Anyone have experience of these?

Thanks for helping.

Carlos

Hi !
Thank you for your excellent website. My name is Paul, I live in France and the fourten is my favorite caliber for hunting small game.
Some information that might be of interest to your site : there is a german company that makes fourten adapters for 12, 16 and 20 gauge guns. I use one in my 20 gauge gun, and it gives excellent patterns with the 2 inch cartridges( I have never tried it with other lenghs of cartridges). The only difference is that the report is much louder than a normal fourten gun.
The cost of a fourten adapter for whatever gauge is about 46 euros (30 english pounds ?). They are of the short kind, the one I use measures 8 cm, they are choked but they probably use the choke of the gun they are inserted in.
The company that makes them : lothar-walther.de
the distributer here in France : frankonia.fr

Have side by side .410, 27 inch barrels. inscribed either side of stock " A & N C S Ld" I think. barrels inscribed "New Barrels By Watson Bros' 7 Bury Street St Jamess London" was my dad's. came in case with Thomas Horsley Gun Maker York Est 1830 Telephone 3577 Telegram "Horsley's York. Anyone information, history, etc
Many Thanks

Admin reply: Most probabily "Army & Navy Co-operative Society Limited", London who (I believe) traded 1871 - 1964. Proof marks may aid in dating though they may be the proof of the re-barreling. Watson Brothers were at 7 Bury Street in the mid 1930s
