    Ernest Augustus King of Hanover’s Percussion Double Barrel Hunting Rifle Muzzel Loader .55 Rifles
    ~ Ernest Augustus King Of Hanover’s Percussion Double Barrel Hunting Rifle ~ Ernest Augustus (5 June 1771 – 18 November 1851) was King of Hanover from 20 June 1837 until his death. He was the fifth son and eighth child of George III, who eleven years before Ernest's birth had inherited the thrones of two kingdoms, Great Britain and Ireland, and also that of the Electorate of Hanover, still part of the Holy Roman Empire. The rifle comes from the Hanover collection and bears on its grip a gold plated cartouche with the Royal Cipher of King Ernest Augustus. Of an exquisite quality the barrels of the rifle are made of Damascus steel fitted with a blued rear sight and a front silver sight. Both lockplates and the top of the barrels are decorated with gold cartouches bearing the manufacturer’s name ‘STOERMER HEPZBERG’. All metal components of the rifle are foliage decorated. The lockplates differentiate from each other due to the fact that the one on the right side is engraved with the depiction of a wild bore and the other one with a deer. The depiction of the two animals is not random as the barrels themselves are individual. The one on the right side has spiral shaped grooves for a higher velocity, more powerful round, whilst the one on the left has straight grooves to be used on smaller game. The blued trigger guard is also decorated with hunting scenes and is fitted with a pineapple shaped finial. Both hand grips are chequered. The one at the front, underneath the barrels, has a foliage decorated silver finial to host the ramrod. The trigger side grip has a silver circular finial. The stock butt it is carved for a right handed user and its butt end is made of steel. The rifle works as intended by the manufacturer. Both its hammers half cock, cock and fire. ~ Dimensions ~ The barrels are 31.29 inches (79.5 cm) long and the overall length of the rifle is 47.5 inches (120.5 cm). The rifle weighs 3.5 Kg. ~ Condition ~ The rifle is in excellent condition with excellent clean bores. There is minimum ageing on the lockplates. ~ Postage ~ UK postage can be arranged or it can be picked up from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
