Here is Ron Gabel's answer to question number 13510

Question:

I have a muzzle loading rifle with the name on the barrel as Westwood Warrented. It was in my fathers' cellar when they moved into their house in 1944. The house itself was built in the 1830's. It is a precussion cap rifle. Do you have any info for me. Looks like a Kentucky long rifle w/ brass compartment on the stock. Thanks.

Answer:

There were five Westwood gunsmiths, all located in Birmingham England, circa 1829 - 1868. Without a more complete description all I can determine is that the barrel was made in England. The gun could possibly be American.
