    Thomas Bland & Sons have been in business 170 years and produced many different types of rifles, and good photos with more detailed description will be needed for identification.

    Here's a history of the firm:

    I happened to be in London the week that Blands closed down.There was a large metal skip outside the front door,guarded by two policemen. The staff spent the day carrying out handguns,rifles, shotguns and all sorts of accessories and just dumping everything into the skip.I must have stood nearby for over an hour watching it all,I left there feeling thoroughly depressed for the rest of the day.
