Response to I'm not saying it wasn't an option Gary,
I think it highly likely that BSA could add some personalised identification to one of their guns in the blink of an eye, and during these air rifle's period of manufacture, from say 1905-1930 the customer was king!
Air rifles were not the only thing BSA produced at this time. Shotguns also were produced in large numbers, not to mention rifles as well. It is common for firearms to be personalised with thier owners initials, so almost certainly there would have been some overspill of these techniques into the air rifle production, and if a client wanted some personalised insciption added to their air rifle, I am sure BSA would have complied with the customers request with all haste. However they would have charged him a high fee for the privilage.
Bear in mind however, that often money was tight (a bit like today!) and it is probably for that reason that these added extra's are quite rare.
