    I am looking for any help in researching a Lewis and Border of London Pistol.

    Anything to start with would help

    Welcome to the site. Sorry, but I can't find anything on those makers. Perhaps someone else can, but some good pictures would help a lot.

    I found a Lewis,T., 1835, general gunsmithing, Carmarthen, Wales. Also a Lewis & Tomes, 1840-1860. Made percussion pocket pistols. London. Maybe a connection somewhere?

    I didn't find it in my books either. If it doesn't have English proof marks, it is likely a European product using an English sounding name. :)
