    C1840 RARE UNUSUAL TRANSITIONAL / EXPERIMENTAL German Form 7mm Calibre Percussion Rook / Small Game Hunting Rifle With Octagonal Barrel, Double Set Hair Trigger Configuration, ‘Waterproof’ Screw Off Internal Nipple Block, Original Figured Walnut Stock. - 15241

    This is a rare unusual German form Rook / Small game rifle made C1840 when the race was on to find innovative & efficient percussion actions for firearms. We have been unable to find any other examples of this form of rifle, nor identify the maker. This rifle has an ingenious percussion action & is no doubt an experimental / transitional piece. The action has a screw off nipple block with winged flange on the underside of the action. The block is unscrewed and a percussion cap placed on the nipple at the top of the block. The block is then screwed back into the underside of the action. The nipple and percussion cap remain within the action sitting under a plate / firing pin on top of the breech which is struck by the hammer when firing. The firing pin plate strikes the percussion cap seated within the action, ignites the cap and discharges the weapon. This system reduces the risk of water ingress into firing mechanism making it ideal, in the period, for hunting in the field (the barrel is loaded with black powder shot and wadding in the normal way from the muzzle end). The rifle has double triggers which can be set for hair trigger shooting. The 22 ½” octagonal steel barrel has a clean rifled bore with crisp well defined rifling. The rifle is 39 ½” overall length). The right barrel flat has indistinct small letters which appear to be ‘L*K’ and number ‘95’ (unknown). The top of the barrel has a small blade fore sight and block with notch rear sight. The action, hammer, trigger guard with scrolled tang & steel butt plate tang have crisp tooled foliate decoration. The all original walnut shoulder stock has a figured cheek piece, chequered panel wrist and chequered sliding patch box held in place by a small sliding metal pin catch with metal plate at the butt plate edge. The patch box contains a steel worm which screws onto the end of the weapon’s steel ram rod which slides into ram rod mounts under the barrel. The underside of the shoulder stock has a steel rosette which sits proud of the stock and may have been intended as a sling anchor. All wood and metal is original and undamaged with even patina. The loading and firing actions of this piece work perfectly. The price for this rare, unusual rifle worthy of further research includes UK delivery. The price includes UK delivery. NB as an antique black powder percussion rifle no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 15241
