A very fine quality and extremely rare 30B (approximately .55") double barrelled breech loading percussion rifle by Calisher & Terry serial no. 6797. William Terry was granted British Patent No. 843 of 7 April 1856 for bolt-action 'Terry's Patent' rifles. Double versions of this pattern of rifle are extremely rare and I suspect that due to the cost, only a few were ever made. Five groove rifling and superb bore. The rifle would use a paper cartridge which would contain powder and a bullet. This would be placed in the breech which was then locked by the bolt, the nipple capped and hammer cocked ready to fire. Barrels (30" to the end of the breeches) are a fine twist and retain most of their original browning. Detented locks with dolphin hammers. Nicely engraved on locks, breeches and furniture. Retains much original finish and is absolutely untouched. This exact rifle is pictured on pages 75 and 165 of Brian Knapps excellent book on the Calisher & Terry rifle which has just been published.

A very interesting quasi military .65" calibre percussion pistol which resembles an East India Company pistol. The lock is engraved GRINDLAY & CO AGENCY . It is Birmingham proved and between the proof marks is stamped H.B & Co. who presumably were the makers. This stamp is also on the stock underneath the butt. Grindlay & Co. were a Bank and Agency started by Captain Robert Melville Grindlay ex- 7th Bombay Native Infantry. Initially the bank was based in London but in 1854 offices were opened in Calcutta. The company helped EIC officers in many ways and I believe also some Indian Princes. They operated as both a bank and travel agent as well as a number of other helpful services to Indian Civil Servants. This pistol may well have been used by Grindlay employees or guards in India and has an interesting connection to the EIC. The pistol measures 15" overall with a barrel of 9". It is in superb condition. Very crisp with most of the original barrel blue and very crisp markings.

Excellent condition with some original colour hardening and barrel brown. Tight action and good bores.

A rare J.D. Dougall Lockfast patent 12B double barrelled pinfire shotgun. The patent is interesting in that when the lever is pushed down the barrels first cam forward before they drop down. They close by camming back onto raised discs on the breech face which securely stop them from any lateral movement. The lockfast patent arose in the early 1860's and underwent several changes during the 1860's. Barrels 30". Very good condition and an untouched sleeper. Crisp with some traces of original finish.

A very rare 25 bore (approx. .56") rifled flintlock cavalry carbine by Durs Egg made at the beginning of the 19th Century. This is one of only eight of this pattern known and came from the Armory at Shirburn Castle, Oxforshire which was the home of the Earl of Macclesfield. Very unusual "hand rail" butt. Side saddle bar. Rifled with seven grooves. 24" barrel and 36" overall. Excellent crisp condition. Superb provenance and a historic piece. This and the other seven carbines were sold out of Shirburn Castle Armory in about 2004 when the Earl of Macclesfield left the castle. They presumably were originally ordered to arm a small contingent of volunteer cavalry at the castle.

A good quality very sleepy 22 bore (.62") percussion rifle by Southall. Set trigger and bolted lock. Round 30 1/4" barrel with top flat and multi leaf sight. Spare side nail (lock screw) in the underside of the butt. When I bought this rifle it was covered in thick soot and it had obviously hung in a room with open fire for many years. I have removed a lot of the soot but it would improve further with a careful clean. All the engraving is crisp and the barrel retains a lot of the original browning. The bore is very good. The lock needs cleaning as the sliding safety is frozen and the set trigger won't set (feels gunged up inside) but a very sleepy untouched rifle.Well engraved and all original. Steel ramrod.

A very high quality double percussion 15 bore two groove rifle by W.A. Beckwith London in it's original case with some accessories. Unusually the barrels, mould and ramrod have a serial number 2747 and the trigger guard has a serial number 2571 although they definitely were made for each other. The rifle and the case carry the name and address of the original owner William Boyle who was a jeweller in Cheapside London so some more research to be done. The case is superbly figured mahogany and the fittings are all gilded. The name escutcheon on the rifle together with the cross bolt escutcheons appear to be gold which matches the makers name on the rib and was probably a special order because the customer was a jeweller. Very good condition.

A very rare and unusual mid 19th century two band .577" percussion rifle which bears a resemblence to the .577" Enfield rifle. The lock and barrel and very similar to an Enfield but the crescent buttplate and trigger guard are different to the standard service Enfield. The barrel is rifled with three grooves and is 34 1/2" long. There looks to have been something engraved on top of the barrel near the breech which has been removed. In superb untouched and uncleaned condition with lots of finish. The ramrod has brass covers in two places to avoid wear on the inside of the barrel. The only markings are underneath the barrel and are shown in one of the photos. It is possible that the N&H stamped under the barrel could be Northall & Hands who were listed in 1861 for Gun and Pistol Maker at 9 Upper Hospital Street, Birmingham. Is this some sort of experimental prototype or possibly made for export to the USA or even Russia? Much cheaper than you could buy a standard Enfield in this condition.

It is complete with it's original canvas case which also bears the initials "JA". The rifle is fitted with windage adjustable target sights and is covered in superb engraving. Barrel is 32". Fine condition with most of it's original finish. Well figured stock and sharp untouched checkering. Mint bore. The case has been amateurishly relined inside with new baize and really should be redone properly. Otherwise a superb example of the best of Scottish gunmaking.

It has, at some time in the distant past, received a knock on the left grip resulting in a gouge and small chunk missing with a minor crack to the wood.

A rare and very high quality 11B Brown Bess type flintlock musket made by H. W. Mortimer & Co. in about 1800. The lock has a French pattern cock and waterproof V shape pan. The frizzen has a roller and the frizzen spring has a tension adjuster. This lock is duelling pistol quality. The stock is checkered on the wrist and forend. There is a large brass escutcheon on the wrist with the owners name H. Tripp . The musket is almost identical to the musket made for H.W. Mortimer Jnr for his service in the Law Association Volunteers and I believe this could also have been used by one of these Volunteers. See pages 84 and 85 of The Mortimer Gunmakers 1753 - 1923 by Lee Munson for an almost identical musket. This is one of the best quality muskets I have ever seen. It is in excellent condition with crisp markings and certainly collector grade.

A matched pair of 50 bore (approx. .48") percussion travelling pistols with rifled barrels and captive ramrods. Birmingham proof marks. They are of good quality - slim and elegant with tastefull engraving. Surprisingly there is no makers name engraved on them. Presumably they were made for a retailer and for some reason their name was never engraved on the pistols. The barrels measure 5" and the pistols are 10" overall. They are in superb very crisp condition with most of the original blue, case hardening and barrel browning remaining. Minor blemishes but nearly mint and very attractive. They are unusual in that they have rifled barrels. A very sleepy pair of original untouched pistols.

A rare Princes patent percussion capping breechloading .577 cal. rifle. London proof marks. Twist 28" barrel rifled with three grooves. The bolt underneath is pulled out and forward to allow the barrel to slide forward on rollers so that a paper cartridge can be inserted at the breech. The barrel is than pulled back and swivelled to lock and a percussion cap is placed on the nipple to fire. This sliding breech mechanism was patented by Prince in the 1850's and submitted to the Board of Ordnance for use by the British Army and despite the fact that it outshot the Enfield rifle it was not accepted. Following this rejection a testimonial was published in the Field Magazine in 1859 signed by leading gunmakers of the time (including Manton , Nock , Parker Field , and Tatham ) petitioning the Government to accept this rifle. Unfortunately again this was unsuccessful probably due to the high cost of manufacture of the mechanism. A very interesting rifle and in view of it's military configuration possibly one made for the Ordnance trials. Good condition - the barrel has been rebrowned and there is some pepper pitting on the breech. The hammer has been repaired probably during it's working life.

A .577 percussion Enfield three band service rifle dated 1856. This is the second contract model with the spring barrel bands. The stock is stamped Pimlico (which was a Government ordnance depot in South London) and dated 1862 which was the date on which the rifle was refurbished and then reissued. Superb untouched condition with most of the barrel blue and very crisp markings. It is getting very very hard to find Enfield military issue rifles in this condition. The bore is rifled with three grooves and is in excellent bright unpitted condition. The stock with the usual knocks and dings associated with it's service use. Incorrect ramrod.

A Newland flintlock service pistol for Yeomany use by Ketland and Adams. This is of slightly better quality than the standard issue pistol as it has a roller on the frizen spring. I have had a repair to the forend wood professionally carried out - there was a crack and sliver of wood missing which has been properly repaired and is now all tight. I deliberately asked for the replacemnet sliver of walnut to be left uncoloured so the purchaser has the option of blending it in or leaving as an honest repair. Metal parts are in very good condition and overall a good example of a 19th Century military pistol.

A superb quality Brown Bess musket by Knubley London made for the Thoresby Volunteers about 1802. The Thoresby Volunteers were raised circa 1802-03 and commanded by Charles Herbert Pierpoint who was 2nd Earl Manvers of Thoresby Hall, Nottinghamshire. The regiment was raised to counter any threat of invasion by Napoleon's forces as well as to protect the estate and locality against aggression and looting resulting from civil disturbance, such as the riotous behaviour in the Nottingham elections of 1801/2. The musket is of regulation type, but with a stepped lock and roller frizzen and signed Knubley. John Knubley is recorded active circa 1766 until his death in 1795, after which his widow continued the business. The name continued to be used by Samuel Brunn and, from 1798, John Mallet until 1803. The latter is known to have signed a number of guns simply 'Knubley', and this musket is probably from that period. The oval brass escutcheon is engraved with the crest of the Pierpoint family and the musket is numbered 80 on the barrel and the lock screws. The bayonet is numbered 66. Untouched sleepy condition thickly covered with varnish on the metal parts. There is a minor crack in the forend. There were about 90 of these muskets in Thoresby Hall with bayonets and they were all sold off by Sothebys in a Country House sale of the contents of Thoresby Hall in 1989 and the original auction label is still attached to the musket. This musket is exactly in the condition as it was when it left Thorseby Hall and has not been cleaned or had the protective coat od varnish removed. A rare opportunity to obtain one of these historic muskets with great provenance.

A .577/450" Martini rifle made by Westley Richards for the ZAR (Boer Republic in the Transvaal) in 1898. This would undoubtedly have been used in the Boer War. The forend has been shortened during it's working life (I understand it was common among the Boers to reduce the weight of the rifle by shortening the forend). There is a hole through the buttstock which could be a bullet hole. Some original blue on the action and all markings clear. A better than average example of these rifles which were given hard service on the South African frontier.

A Westley Richards Patent Improved Martini 500/450 (No. 1 Carbine) sporting rifle made by Westley Richards. Ovoid 24" barrel with under rib and typical African multi leaf sight with ladder and ivory foresight. Pistol grip stock. Birmingham proof marks. Good working order. Retains most of the original blue. There is a small crack to the top of the stock just visible behind the action tang (this crack is common for these types of rifle due to the shape of the butt stock) and you can see this in one of the photos. The wooden cleaning rod is missing from the pipes under the barrel. A very good example of a " Free State Carbine " that was probably used by a Boer or Pioneer in South Africa during the last quarter of the 19th Century. Most of these carbines had a hard life and do not survive in good condition.

The rifle retains a large amount of the original finish and is a superb example of a rare rifleing system. Even the butt plate retains original blueing.
