J, GRAINGER & SON
GRAHAMSTOWN - SOUTH AFRICA about 1865-1890.
Juxtaposed mixed rifle, often called "cape gun" when relatively large gauges are concerned: thus 1 shot with ball (Rifled bore) on the left and a shot with hunting cartridge (Unrifled bore) on the right.
Similar to those manufactured by the Nagant house of Liege with their juxtaposed adaptation of the system says “Rolling block”.
The Grainger house is either the manufacturer, or more probably the retailer, or the house which generated this special order for this cape gun. (Which says “cape” thinks fatally of South Africa)
