    Default Britannia Cox Patent

    I manged to pick up this old Britannia. Sadly the trigger and barrel serial no do not match.I need help with regards the barrel hinge pin. Is it a pressed fit pin or a threaded bolt. I am unable to see any threads which indicate a pressed pin. I would like to fabricate a new one tomorrow so any help will be greatly appreciated

    Hi, My wife's great uncle was the "Cox" in question! We have a nice example of a Bonehill Britannia which we had re-blued in Birmingham at a factory just over the road from where it was made all those years ago. We also have a copy of the original patent document. We had to strip the gun down completely (surprisingly simple) to "restore" it and have various photographs of the strip-down if they are any use/interest,

    Thanks Danny as i made a press fit pin as i could not see any sign of threads. I will leave it as a pin but mill in a slot to make it more authentic looking. Thank you for this valuable information
