Associated with the safari hunters of the blackpowder era, this rifle would have fired a .71" lead round ball weighing 1-1/4 oz. 39" round thick-walled rifled round barrel with long range rear sight. Expertly restored finish with attractive blue on barrel and color case hardening on lock and barrel tang. Brass parts have attractive light patina. Fine lightly finished stock, nicely checkered wrist and smooth horn forearm tip. Stock is free of cracks and chips. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
