    A fine Pattern 1856 volunteer short rifle

    by Thomas Turner. In very nice
    condition.

    The rifle has the sought after five grove
    1 in 48" rifling. The bore is very good
    with the rifling sharp and well defined to
    the muzzle. Some minor frosting and
    marks but no deep pitting, The bore
    reflects bright and shiny, although I've
    struggled to photo this.

    The underside of the breach has a full
    crisp set of Birmingham commercial
    proofs and T. Turners barrel smiths mark.
    Thomas Turner was a celebrated and
    respected target rifle maker and
    Government contractor.

    The stock of dark heart wood walnut has
    an attractive figure and a lovely deep
    shiny patina. Typically of a higher quality
    volunteer rifle it is well chequered at the
    wrist and forearm and absolutely free of
    any splits or cracks.

    Intriguingly The lock is just marked
    Tower and 1861 rather than carrying
    Turner's name. Internally it's stamped
    Siddons, who was a very good quality
    lock maker and often associated with
    Turner. A Snider three band by
    T. Turner, formally in my collection had
    a Siddons lock.

    The original rear sight elevator tension
    spring was rather weak and now Premier
    gunsmith Peter Dyson has supplied a
    finely made replacement and keeper
    screw.

    A fine quality five grove volunteer short
    rifle by one of the most respected of the
    old masters. This quality rifle would
    make a excellent shooter for an FAC
    holding target rifleman.

    I am open to sensible offers on this sale.
