Please click the image for a larger version
English P1856 style rifle. Appears to be assembled using an original English barrel and lock marked TOWER 1861 with other parts of unknown origin. Rear sight and ramrod are absent. Barrel shows a hole on the bottom near the breech from where it was made into a lamp at one time. Metal parts have a dark rust patina overall. Stock is fair to good condition with an old sanding and added finish, small chip by the lock screw, and a flaw with associated crack in the left side of the butt. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
