Default R. Hanbury 10 bore Sidelock

I purchased this gun last week off of GI. She's a 10 bore SxS manufactured by R. Hanbury...Just a hair over 9 lbs, 32" Damascus Barrels (St. Bernard Damascus), with double triggers. I've gone thru my library & done every internet search I know to do...but have yet to locate a single reference to R. Hanbury. I assume this gun is English, but also am unable to identify what type of action this. Can't find any other gun with the pin configuration this one has, not to mention the shape of the sidelocks. If anyone can help shed some light on this gun origins...I'd be most appreciative.

These pics really don't do the gun justice. In addition to looking quite smart...It's very well balanced & throws up like a much lighter upland gun.

Very nice! I like the cocking levers. Are they actuated by the top lever, or, does the rear barrel lug press down (or lift) on the piece adjacent to the rear bolt?

As the barrels fall, the hook on the rear lug lifts the lever, cocking the hammers. It's a neat little set up.

To me (with very little knowledge) the gun does not look English, I think Belgium... Maybe someone else like John Campbell or others that know will chime in here

Looks like English proofs. Very unusual. The patent mark with number should give you info. American patents are on Google. I don't know if the British patents are available.

The easy thing to do is foreward your photos to Toby Barclay at Heritage Guns. He'll know the answer.
