Eley .40-60 Marlin


#1

I just picked up a cartridge made by Eley that I was not aware of - a .40-60 Marlin & Colt. The headstamp is ELEY . '40-60 . I’d include a picture but my web page host is down (again). I can’t imagine that this would have been a big seller in England. Does anyone know if there is a checklist of the American calibers made by Eley and Kynoch.

Armorer,
Thank you. I very much appreciate the dates of production also - someone put a great deal of work into the list.

J-P,
The rimfire list would also include the .41 derringer, 44 Henry, 25 Stevens, and the various .22 rimfires; I’m sure there are more, these were just the ones in my own collection. Unfortunately, I have none of the Spencers.

Eley also offered the .30 Us Army (.30-40 Krag) prior to WW1 - but I’ve never seen one - if anyone out there has one - please post the headstamp & bullet type. Thanks.
PS the Winchester rifles were quite popular in England - a much cheaper alternative to the English gunmakers double rifles - for those on colonial postings.
