Rodda Cape Gun

I have come across a R.B. Rodda & Co Cape gun. I can't really find too much information on this and wanted to make sure it was an original manufacture before buying it. I don't have any photos right now but I will try to describe it as best I can to get an idea of it's authenticity.

Here is a link for the pics: http://www.shotgunworld.com/bbs/cpg1....php?album=119

The right barrel is a shotgun barrel, possibly a 16 gauge. The left barrel is a rifle barrel and there is good rifling through the entire barrel. It is an underlever break action centerfire with R.B Rodda & Co of London and then it has the info from their Calcutta branch.

It looks to be in very good condition and has a Serial Number on the bottom of the stock near the trigger guard, under the barrels and on on the inside of the front hand guard of 38080.

If anyone can shed any light on this I would be grateful.

I would like to thank everyone in advance for the assistance.
