The 4 bores were indeed made in very limited numbers, but so far we have not found a 2 bore sporting rifle made before the one I made a few years ago.

That's not to say dogmatically none were ever made, but if there were no one has yet uncovered one and/or produced a record of one predating the gun I made. (in the pictures of my 1st post)

Colin told me today that he was contacted by the Guinness Book of World Records and that they were possible going to credit him with a "record" of being the first man to make one, but he was not. He is the 2nd man to make one.
He was a bit apologetic for such an entry, but it may be a mistake and not be his fault as Colin has made more 2 bores than anyone else. Just not the 1st one.
