    A very hefty percussion carbine of the sort used to protect a coach or a bank branch . It has been made from a late 18th century Brown Bess musket by Wheeler, converted to percussion. It appears to have a "proprietry" or "patent" ignition system of a type not known to me . The nipple has a window in the side , the hole is of very large diameter and there is a vertically projecting tube in the middle . I would guess the cap would go INSIDE the nipple and the window is to assist removing it . Possibly the alleged advantage of the system would be to protect the user from flying pieces of cap .Contemporary proof marks , unit number on buttplate etc. Lock working well with strong mainspring etc. Very solid and a very unusual thing of quality.. Can be viewed /collected in SW London or posted UK mainland . Good value at £495 .. Thanks for looking !
