Hi mate

Yep seen a few, but not very common. They made 22lr rifles in pump and leaver, not too sure about bolt action.

They were built smack bang in the city Center in murry street area.

Our club captain has a 1945 pump westarms .22lr that he has had since he could remember.

If you look at the old papers ( ones been archived by the gov ) you can still find advertiments from them.

Oh and welcome to the forum.

yep.... the date range at the top is 1902 -1954 so i'd say it was a misread.
