    UNIQUE BREECH LOADING ENFIELD TRIALS RIFLE**MINT BORE**Victorian British George Henry Daw, London Enfield Pattern 1856 Muzzle Loading Rifle Converted to Breech Loading Bolt Action .577 Obsolete Calibre. Sn 18023 - 18023

    George Henry Daw was an English Gunmaker recorded as having premises at 57 Threadneedle Street London C1860 -1879. This is an original British trials rifle by Daw made in the transition era of muzzle loaders to breech loading actions and is most likely unique. The rifle has been converted to breech loading using a muzzle loading P1856 short rifle platform. The percussion action removed and replaced with the hinged breech cover that would later be found on snider patent weapons but with the addition of a hammerless bolt action. This rifle has a 31” round steel barrel with a near mint borer, clean & bright with crisp rifling. The top of the barrel is signed ‘G.H. Daw 57 Threadneedle Street London’. The metal work has even patina throughout. The all original woodwork has knocks bumps and bruises to be expected. The action plate signed ’G.H Daw’. The action is strong and works as it should. It has sling swivels, original iron cleaning rod, fixed foresight and adjustable rear ladder sight and bayonet bar. The forward sling swivel has an old inventory label attached which has obviously been with the rifle for many years. The label has ink writing ‘M694’.The price for this extremely rare trials piece includes UK delivery. NB As an obsolete calibre weapon no licence is required to own this weapon in the UK if retained as a part of a collection or display. Sn 18023
