Wilkinson Firearms

 

We can offer a research service for the owners of firearms (shotguns, rifles, revolvers and pistols) manufactured or sold by Wilkinson Sword Limited. The majority of these firearms, upon completion, were given a special Wilkinson serial number. The Wilkinson Sword Limited firearms archive of production and sales records, start in 1807 with Wilkinson serial number 173. These pages record details of the firearm, bore, length of barrel, type of weapon, date started/completed and purchasers name, sometimes the purchasers name has been left blank, we speculate that such items were sold over the counter at the Pall Mall shop and the purchasers name went unrecorded, other times the record simply gives the family/surname of the purchaser. Within the record books a few serial numbers are blank with no information recorded on them and alas, two complete books are missing. To find your firearm in the records we must have the correct Wilkinson serial number of the arm, without this number we cannot help you.

 

Some gun records contain very minimal information, only details such as the date of manufacture, bore size and barrel length. In these cases the purchasers name is not present. It maybe that you would still like a copy of the record even though it contains only this minimal information. Should this be the case please tick the requisite box on the Archive Request Form.

 

For your interest and to help you in ascertaining the correct Wilkinson serial number on your firearm, which sometimes, has more than one serial number upon them, we give the archive book details including number ranges and production dates for each book.
