A Massive English 10 bore Big Game Muzzle-Loading Percussion Rifle circa 1850
The heavy steel barrel with full length top rib engraved LONDON, fixed iron sights and under-rib. The steel lock with nice floral engraving, polished walnut halfstock with chequered pistol grip and steel mounts, complete with steel ramrod. This piece has been restored including a fully re-browned barrel which shows some pitmarks under the finish and the rifling is worn out. The general appearance is excellent and had the barrel been perfect, the rifle would be worth approx. £7000. A most impressive wall-piece. OA 110cm, Brl 70cm.
£3450 + £30 P&P
