Britannia .177 Calibre, Sure Shot, Break Action, Air Rifle ' Cox's Patent,C.G. Bonehill Birmingham. Sn 18085:4 - 18085:4
The first patent for the Britannia style Break Action Air Rifle was dated 1902 and they were produced between 1905 -1908 (see page 12 & 13 of a Collector's Guide To Air Rifles By Hiller). The break action is achieved by a thumb operated, gate type, barrel latch which when pulled backwards releases the barrel and allows the weapon to be cocked and loaded. This is a nice example with original wood & metalwork throughout all of which has even patina. It has a 20 ½” stepped rifled barrel with clean bore and crisp rifling and measures 35 ½” overall. It has a blade foresight & flip up graduated leaf rear sights. The top of the frame is correctly stamped 'Cox's Patent' together with 'C.G. Bonehill, Sole Manufacturer Birmingham'. The left side is stamped with the Britannia name and 'Trade mark'. The steel stock frame and barrel section are stamped with matching numbers '417' together with 'RD 394207' on the frame. The break action loading and firing action work as they should with a good spring action. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 18085:4
