Edward Paton & Sons, .500 bpe

Oil soaked, some external pitting on the barrels,great wood under the grime, front sight is damaged, very good bores. I will sympathetically restore this one and work up a load for it.

Very nice early rifle, non-rebounding locks, stalker safeties, finger rest, what's not to like

Good luck in your endeavours, a good pick up

The locks are beautifully made by Brasier and included a fly on the tumbler.

The barrels are marked HS, any thoughts on the barrel maker?

The action is marked J&T.S, ideas on the actioner?

The rifle is cleaning up wonderfully so far.

Barrel length? Could you post a picture of the rear sight, so I can increase my lust...

HS could be Hollis & Sheath.
Not sure if they made barrels for the trade or if they were doing business in breech loading firearms.

Toby Barclay has suggested HS would be Henry Squires, barrel maker to most of the Best gunmakers. He also felt the J&T.S was the mark for Thomas Southgate's company.
