RARE, Victorian Pre 1897 British Swinburn’s Patent Martini Action No 2 Musket Ammunition (.500/.450 Obsolete Calibre) Sporting Rifle By W&C Scott & Son (Webley). Sn 15648 - 15648
The Swinburn rifle in outward appearance is very similar to a Martini Henry, however the action is of the Swinburn patent. In simple terms this has a falling block and cocking lever as in a Martini, but employs a V leaf spring and hammer to strike the firing pin and has an additional side lever which allows the hammer to be cocked without operating the under lever. This is a very good example of the scarce Swinburn Patent rifle in No 2 Musket Ammunition Calibre(.500/.450). The action has the correct additional side mounted Swinburn cocking lever and is stamped by the manufacturer ‘ W&C Scott & Son Makers London Swinburns Patent’ (In 1897 Webley amalgamated with W & C Scott and Sons to become The Webley & Scott Revolver and Arms Company Ltd of Birmingham). The action tang is numbered ‘35500’. The metal work is undamaged. The wood work is all original and has a chequered wrist and fore stock. The underside of the shoulder stock near to the steel butt plate has a small, contemporary, professional repair and the butt plate is holed for trap (trap lid absent). The underside of the wrist is holed for sling swivel lug. The fore stock has a polished horn end cap. The 26” barrel has a clean bore with crisp rifling and the rifle measures 42 ¾” overall length. The underside of the barrel has a fixed ring for sling swivel. The barrel is marked ‘No2 Musket Ammunition’ and has proofs. The barrel has a block and blade fore sight and flip up ladder rear sight. The rifle’s cocking & firing actions work as they should. The price includes UK delivery. NB as an obsolete calibre, antique firearm no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 15648
