798. Interesting Belgian Revolving Rifle

Click on images for enlarged versions.

About 45 CF, 25 3/4" octagon barrel with an oxidized bore still showing some bright spots and areas of good rifling. The barrel of this un-marked Belgian-proofed rifle is mostly a dark brown patina with high edge wear and fine light pitting throughout. The frame retains some very faint hints of case-hardened colors mostly around the screw heads and has toned to a silvery patina overall with light to moderate pitting throughout. The cylinder is a similar gray patina, the widow's peak buttplate a dark brown and the fancy triggerguard is a little loose. The checkered straight grip walnut buttstock remains in about good overall condition showing worn checkering overall, some small chips, abrasions, scratches and dings. The rifle features sling swivels, ejector rod, notch rear and post front sights. The mechanism still functions quite well in single and double action with good timing and lockup a little loose. Overall a very interesting revolving rifle for the antique arms collector. (138804-7) {ANTIQUE} (600/800) SOLD FOR $1,265.00
