Remarks                                 :


This tool is not listed in the 1889 catalogue. The one listed in that catalogue is completely different.

This tool, which has no funnel shows a proper end stop at the loading tube.

I named this tool an “A10 LB” (long barrel) just to give it a name. Any way, it doesn’t belong to the A49 series.

Apparently his tool has been for Joseph Lang & Sons, 33 New Bond Street, London
