6 Bore; very good bore, fair stock, 26.25'' barrel, Manufactured in England circa 1840s. Barrel shortened long ago, commonly done for use with round ball against large game somewhere in the empire. Original browned finish barrel, casehardened lock, mounted in a walnut stock with double wedged forend and checkered wrist. Fine scroll leaf engraving on the lockplate and stock mounts. Engraved on the side of the lockplate "REILLY.LONDON". The top of the barrel is marked "REILLY. 502 OXFORD STREET, LONDON". Ramrod is a later replacement. The stock has an old crack on the right running from the back of the lockplate into the checkering on the wrist, and another crack which appears to have been glued long ago on left side, running from the center of the trigger guard plate up to the rear of the upper tang. The lock functions fine. Antique, s/n 84xx
