Anyone have any information on a barrel maker using the initials JAS on his work? (gun is 12 bore Charles Ingram) Thanks.

Could find nothing on the JAS but did find the following information on Charles Ingram:
Scottish gun maker from 1900 to 1930. So I would have to assume that JAS was an English barrel maker.

Thanks. On the action it says Made in England. Also read that few Scottish makers had the resources to make the entire gun in house and many were Birmingham made and finished in Scotland like many others.

Have gone through all my references covering Scotland,Birmingham,London etc and no barrel maker JAS comes up. There are a couple of provincial gun makers but thats all.

Thanks. JA is heavily stamped then a lighter S stamp that does not really match. Don't think Charles Ingram would stamp Made in England on action, so probably finished by him I guess. If only these old guns could talk.
