What You Need to Know: West Mercia Q&A on Firearms Licensing
News Dealer & Industry News
Metal work has aged evenly to a nice patina, with lots of traces of the original colour case hardening on the action, very good for a gun over 100 years old. All stampings and engravings are crisp and clear as can be seen in the photos.
There is one patch of wear on the right hand side of the action, I would guess that it spent a fair bit of time in a scabbard or similar and perhaps a buckle or some other retail fixing rubbed against it. I have highlighted this in one of the photos.
Not a lot of these 1894 SRCs about, especially in obsolete .32-40. Great opportunity to get hold of a classic.
I have personally shot this rifle when I previously had it on my Firearms Certificate, and it shot well.
Collection from Chichester in West Sussex, or can perhaps meet within 50 miles or so
