Description

Mid 1800's .40 Calibre Break Action Needle Fire Rook Rifle By E.M Reilly & Co, London. A 547

Edward Michael was an English Gunmaker who between 1861 & 1869 had premises at 315 & 502 New Oxford Street, London, operating as E.M Reilly & Co (see page 195 & 196 of English Gunmakers Vol.1 By Brown). This is a good quality .40 Calibre Needle Fire Rook Rifle By E.M Reilly & Co, London.. It has a 25 1/2" octagonal barrel and measures 42" overall. The barrel's bore is clean and has crisp rifling. The top of the barrel is engraved 'E.M. Reilly & Co 502 New Oxford Street, London'. Both sides of the action & trigger guard with extended tang are nicely engraved with a foliate design. The neck of the stock has chequered panels and it is fitted with a steel butt plate. The underside of the stock is inlaid with a small, oval, void, German Silver escutcheon. The stock is all original with just the bumps and bruises to be expected. The weapon has fixed blade fore sight and small flip up leaf rear sights. The weapon's break action is operated by a knurled plate lever which operates a threaded bolt which allows the barrel to be broken for loading. The weapon's needle fire action works perfectly. Price for this attractive rook rifle 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. A 547.
