    A co worker brought in these pics, hoping I could tell her something about it but I'm at a loss. Unfortunately they aren't as detailed as I had hoped. Grip has London Armoury Co. on it and it looks like that is also marked above the trigger guard on the left. Right side is hard to make out, looks like "Kerr's" patent and 96 95. Any help would be great.

    Tat's a ver cool old pistol. Try to keep it from getting any more rusty.

    Yeah, they're not really gun people, I'll probably take it home and try to clean up some of the light rust and oil it up. Might even just put some grease on it.

    Don't clean it, you may destroy any collector value by cleaning. Oil it to stop any further rusting. Then do some research on restorations of old fire arms.

    Gotcha on the cleaning, clean is the wrong word, just a wipe down with some oil is all I planned.
