    Volunteer/private purchase Baker Rifle, 'Tower' marked, 0.65" calibre circa 1810-20.


    On offer is the chance to own an iconic firearm, the first rifle barrelled gun issued to the British army.
    This Baker Rifle has the split full length walnut stock seen on models from 1805 onwards to stop the ramrod fowling, with a steel lock plate and brass furniture. It is marked for the Tower of London manufacture, with a crown over 'GR' marking on the lock. The stock has the single chamber butt box found on military issue rifles of this period, along with a slightly unusual pattern bayonet bar. The 30" barrel is nicely browned, again as per military specification. The barrel shows 2 crown over crossed sceptres private proof marks, along with 3 '18' bore marks, and Birmingham proof marks. It has an inlaid brass foresight. The barrel is worn internally, showing little remaining rifling, no doubt the sign of a long and active life.
    The rifle has a fixed rear sight, 3.8" from the tang.
    There is a further mark '53' on the bayonet lug. It has the ring necked cock standard to this period Baker rifle. It has a raised cheek piece to the left side of the stock. The brass trigger guard shows a slight variance on the standard ordnance model, indicative of a volunteer or private purchase model. The ramrod is a straight version, steel type, again a slight variation on the ordnance models.
    The rifle is in lovely condition, with only minor blemishes to the woodwork. The lock functions perfectly, holding on the half and full cock, and dry fires, with a good strong spring mechanism. It is unusual to find a volunteer private purchase Baker rifle with 'Tower' markings on the lock. All of the metalwork is in superb condition for the age. The rifle comes complete with a black leather sling, though this is likely not original.
    This is the perfect opportunity to acquire an iconic piece of firearms history.
    Postage/delivery can be arranged at cost.
