    Largest selection of genuine antique weapons for sale in UK. See our website andrewbottomley.com. Ref 2573. A very rare American 3 barrel swivel action percussion revolving rifle. Circa 1840-1850. Made some 20 years or so before the start of the American Civil War. There is no name on this example but it is typical of many similar rifles made in Pennsylvania during the mid 19th century. Overall length is 44 inches. The three rifled barrels are 28 inches long. Calibre is approx .38 cal. The barrels are manually rotated after first releasing the catch by pressing the set trigger. High quality brass butt-plate and complete with a steel ramrod secured in three iron pipes. The barrels are mounted with three completely individual front sights. For a very similar but two barrel rifle and further details please see page 55 plate 44 in "FIREARMS CURIOSA" by Lewis Winant. The butt is inlaid with a superb nickel patch-box with hinged lid. (Please see photos). The set-trigger works well. Condition is good showing little wear. Ref 2573. This is an obsolete antique item and is sold as a collectors item only. No Licence is required in the United Kingdom. If you wish to purchase this item please visit our website andrewbottomley.com where you can pay by credit/debit card.
