    MINT BORE**1883 & 1884 Dated Dutch Model 1871/88 Beaumont Vitali 11.3x50R Obsolete Calibre Bolt Action Rifle With Box Magazine. Sn 18196:9 - 18196:9

    The Beaumont rifle is the first purpose-built cartridge rifle to be used by the Netherlands. Edouard de Beaumont designed the bolt and receiver which has very clean smooth lines with few sharp edges. The bolt is particularly aesthetic with no gripping surface on the cocking piece and bulbous bolt handle. The top of the chamber is drilled with two holes to vent gas away from the shooter in the event of a case rupture. This is a common feature in first generation bolt rifles as early brass cartridges were of varying quality. This example is in excellent condition. It has original wood furniture which has just the knocks bumps and bruises to be expected of a service rifle of its age. The stock is stamped with a roundel containing a large ‘W’ and ‘1884’ date together with other indistinct characters. The metal work has even patina. The barrel length is 33” and it measures 52” overall. The breech, barrel, butt plate tang and bolt have several un-matching numbers and small inspection marks. The barrel is date stamped ‘1883’. It has an adjustable rear sight, block & blade foresight, safety catch, sling swivels, cleaning rod & correct magazine. The bore is near mint, clean and bright with crisp rifling. The loading & firing actions are crisp. The price includes UK delivery. NB As an obsolete calibre antique rifle no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 18196:9
