PostAuthor: Nilesh Thakur » Fri Jul 12, 2013 8:49 pm

Hi Everyone,
One of my friend has a Manton sxs sidelock shotgun it has 32" barrel 3" Chamber also has an ejector ,on the rib its written Manton & co Delhi Calcutta but the proof marks shows the gun is made in UK it also has very good engraving and its bit heavy as compared to another guns,I have seen some other guns by Manton but they had Belgium proof marks and other guns its written London Calcutta.What difference does it make can some one put light on this and is it possible for member to share some pics of Manton shotguns and rifles they own.

Manton & Co. were gun dealers who got all grades of guns made for clients and had many in ready stock as well. The gun shown in the picture is no. 1 of a pair made in Birmingham perhaps. If you post proof marks we can comment more.

i have seen one of these shotguns in the flesh and it happens to be a very sturdy gun indeed.one of the sturdiest actions i ever saw and the chamber was 3". indeed it is made to handle loads which would destroy other guns

These guns have a very unique mechanism where the hammers are cocked on turning the top lever .

Advantages : Reliable cocking
Disadvantages : Top lever become a bit hard to turn with the thumb , No unloading option.
