    tipping and lawden Sharps Patent Rifle Single Shot .400 Rifles

    RiflesSingle ShotUsed£ 495
    You haven't got one of these ... Very , very, rare .41 rook rifle using Christian Sharps' 1849 patent for a sliding breech rifle . Tipping and Lawden had rights to this patent and made thousands of their four barrel derringers using this slide forward design , locking with a button under the action .They made a few rifles using the patent . Amongst the very earliest self contained metallic cartridge rifles , using Smith and Wessons' heeled bullet rimfire cartridge . I have only been able to trace four of these , one being a relic. All were in the 200 to 300 serial number range . In as found, uncleaned condition , being complete and working well . I have only ever seen one for sale (at $3600 ! ) , in the States . Of interest to Sharps collectors and , I think , very cheap at £495 , posted . Thanks for looking ! Thanks for looking !...Read full description
