I have a Lewis & Tomes 4 Bore , Double Barrel , Percussion , Smoothbore Muzzleloader . The gun weighs 23 lbs. The barrels are 33 inches long with 1 inch bores . The Proof Marks are from the Birmingham Proof House mid 1800's . It has an inlayed stock , fancy engraving on the locks etc. and 2 gold bands at the top of the barrels . As far as condition , I don't have the knowledge to tell you about blueing and that sort of thing, I would rather send you the pictures and let you decide for yourself. In order to send them I need an e-mail address to send them to since that's the only way I know how to send them . My e-mail address is email@example.com
. I check my e-mail a couple of times a day and will be more than happy to send them to you right away.
I have traced the gunmaker and know that history . I will be glad to pass that on to you as well . Lewis happens to be the son of G.E. Lewis a gunmaker in the U.K. . As you know it's hard to find a 4 bore single and almost impossible to find a double barrel . That's why it is so difficult to place value on the gun . If anyone has any information about the value please let me know , Any guesses will be welcome also please let me know. Any information will be greatly appreciated.
