    This is an excellent Snider which was obviously commissioned by a keen shot for target shooting or possibly Volunteer Service. The rifle consists of a Thomas Turner Lock and Stock in excellent condition, even the Turner cartouche is still intact on the butt. The lock is stamped with Turners Birmingham address and the nipple protector and chain is still in situ but the barrel is by P Webley also of Birmingham. In the early 1870's there was much experimentation with Sniders and it was thought that iron barrels were more accurate than steel barrels although not as hard wearing. This rifle is such an example. The lock is a free or indented lock for a very smooth let off and the breech block features the desirable locking lug. From the condition of the breech block it has seen very little use and has been well looked after. The hammer is the Mark 111 flat hammer.

    The bore is clean and bright with a small amount of minimal pitting towards the end half inch caused by cleaning but is not detrimental to the rifle. I mention it but it is difficult to see.
    The locking cam is marked BSA and has Snider patent marks and the general appearance of the rifle is that of a Military Mark 111 with the rear sight next to the knox and an improved locking breech. There are several Birmingham proof and view marks and the stock has no cracks and only really minimal handling marks as can be seen from the images. A real "sleeper" that has not been messed with and should prove to be an excellent shooter should you wish to add it to a Firearms Certificate. There is an issue number on the rifle and also on the underside of the trigger guard.
    An attractive rifle that would be difficult to improve on. One of the best I have ever seen.
