    VERY RARE, British Victorian Charles Lancaster's 1850 Patent Regulation Oval Bore 2 Band .450” Bore Match Target Percussion Rifle. Sn 13682 - 13682

    Charles William Lancaster (1820–1878) was an English 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 a very rare Lancaster's patent Percussion Match Target Rifle in regulation .450" bore. It is faintly stamped on the barrel 'Lancaster's Patent' and the side plate of the action ‘Lancaster’. It has excellent all original woodwork with steel fittings including butt plate, trigger guard with extended tang / finger rest, forward barrel block, barrel bands, block fore sight, 1200 yard flip up ladder rear sight, heavy Dolphin hammer, nipple protector with brass chain, sling swivels and steel ram rod with ribbed brass end cap. Its 36” barrel has a clean bore with correct Lancaster Patent Oval rifling. Total length is 52 ¼”. The loading & firing actions work perfectly. The price for this very rare weapon includes UK delivery. This is an antique percussion rifle and no licence is required to own it in the UK if retained as a part of a collection or display. Sn 13682.
