    I'm not sure how old it is, but I've had it for about five years now. I've posted some pictures, if that helps. [img][/img]I have a Sears & Roebuck 20 gauge that I would like to know the value of.  I'm not sure how old it is, but I've had it for about five years now.  I've posted some pictures, if that helps.[img][/img]Here are the specs and features:

    20 gauge
    3 inch chamber
    Single shot (break action)
    Model Number: 101.10041
    Serial Number: A771852

    Also, I've forgotten what it's called, but it's the kind of setup where it breaks down to three parts with no tools--just pull off the grip, and the barrel breaks away from the action and stock. It then snaps back together just as easily.

    I would like to know two things: Approximately how old it is, and most importantly, what it's worth. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Methinks you and the good Capt. Kirk have been snookered. "Laminated Steel" is the mark of a Belgian knockoff. See the "ELG" proofs on the watertable and you'll see that I'm correct.

    Assuming what I already am almost sure of... A $150.00 gun at best.


    Westley Richards will always be "WESTLEY RICHARDS"! Anything else is less... Usually much less.

    Hello fmkgaly

    Welcome to the forum. We hope that as your busy schedule permits that you will join us from time to time on this forum.

    I am voting with "nord" on this one.

    To the best of my knowledge "Westley Richards" founded this company in 1812 at 82 High Street in "Birmingham" NOT London. In 1875 his company developed the "Anson & Deely" boxlock action that is renound through the world.

    The firm was moved and to the best my knowledge is still in existance today in Brournebrook.

    Best Regards
