1026. Unmarked Over-Under Percussion Buck And Ball Rifle

Click on images for enlarged versions.

.42 cal. rifled and .45 cal. smoothbore, 28" barrels with bright very good plus to near excellent rifle bore which shows only some light oxidation, the smoothbore very similar. The barrels are a mix of deep soft plum brown patina and dark gunmetal gray with minor oxidation and numerous scattered light handling marks, near overall, from the years. The right side of the barrels has three soft-soldered ramrod thimbles which retain what is likely the original ramrod. The back action locks, tang and hammers are all a deep gray patina, the hammers with some light brown oxidation. The single rearward flourish triggerguard, crescent butt, toeplate and pendulum-style patchbox are a dull goldenrod patina and quite nice. The walnut buttstock remains very good with minor handling marks and a few chips here or there but they are tiny and unobtrusive. Equipped with double triggers which operate each lock independently, the gun seems to function well mechanically. There are modern sights in place and sling swivels applied to the left side of the gun during the period of use; the antique lollipop tang sight is in place at the rear. A neat, sadly unmarked, over-under buck and ball rifle overall, no doubt from Pennsylvania or New York State. (38426-51) {ANTIQUE} (1000/1500) SOLD FOR $690.00
