    Boothroyd lists only a George Walters, London 1836-1857. Side X Sides of the World lists a Walters & Son: "There were a number of gun makers & dealers in the USA and Britain from about 1820 to 1900. History and quality unkown. One listed for sale in 1998 was 16 Gauge, Damascus barrels, outside hammers, and of course it was a sxs. It is not clear if the company changed hands, or if several makers sold under that name at different times, or if several makers built them for someone who sold them under that name. As the good Captn. says, we would be most pleased to help if we can, but need much more information to work with.
