Thanks to Grumpy, this is what he had to say.
I don`t know if they hold the records but the current owners of the name are as below - if they hold no information then it`s a case of taking out a short term subscription to the Internet Gun Club.

E.M.Reilly & Co
Ranmore Road
The Internetgunclub website is presently down due to technical issues. However if you wish to contact the owner who has a great database about most English gun makers,please PM me and I will give the email address.

BTW, if it is not a problem, please do post a few photos of the gun.

Pelle, I`ve had a response from John Smith containing the information he holds on the E.M.Reilly company which I`ve forwarded to you via PM.

welcome aboard pelle.
do introduce yourself.

Do you hunt in norway?
what are the hunting laws for foreigners?
do you any guides there?

See my initial post on Reilly's in India:

Would love to know the serial number of your Reilly and the name on the rib. I have a feeling it might be 30364? That would be the number two of a pair. 30363 was pictured in this book. It has Deely Patent ejector use 438 and Anson&Deely action 6250 - yours has Deely patent ejector 437 and A&D action 6265.

https://www.theexplora.com/who-made-thi ... n-jackson/
The example we present here (SN 30363) is Number 1 of a pair. It is stamped on the action flats with Deeley’s Patent Ejector use number 428 and [color:#FF0000]Anson and Deeley’s Patent use number 6250 for the box lock action. [/color]

If i were you and had the facility to have a new pair of barrels made to my specifications in modern steel, I'd do so as then the gun could be used with modern 23/4' shells like all modern shotguns though I would keep and preserve the original barrel for its collectors value as its made of Damascus steel. Just a suggestion.
