    MINT BORE, C1890 British Victorian Charles Lancaster's 1850 Patent Oval Bore .250 Centre Fire Obsolete Calibre Break Action Under Lever Rook Rifle. Sn 16628 - 16628

    Charles William Lancaster (1820–1878) was an English listed as gun maker and improver of rifles and cannon. Lancaster was the eldest son of Charles Lancaster, gunmaker, of 151 New Bond Street, London. In 1850 Lancaster patented his Oval ‘smooth’ rifling system which reduced the problems with fouling, common with black powder rifles and increased accuracy. This is an excellent C1890 Lancaster's patent Rook rifle in .250 CF calibre. It has a plain steel action & the breech has calibre detail ‘CF.250’ and the blued 26 ¼” barrel with top flat is signed ‘Charles Lancaster 151 New Bond St London’ & ‘Non Fouling Smooth Oval Bore Rifling’. It has excellent all original Walnut woodwork with chequered panel fore stock which has a polished horn fore end cap, chequered panel pistol grip and ribbed butt. It has leaf graduated flip up sights graduated 50-150 yards and blade fore sight. The rifle’s bore is near mint, shiny & clean. Total length is 41 ¾”. The under lever break action loading & firing actions work perfectly. The action tang and action are numbered '8809'. The price includes UK delivery. This is an antique obsolete calibre rifle and no licence is required to own it in the UK if retained as a part of a collection or display. Sn 16628
