Octagonal Damascus barrel with diminutive blade front sight and simple notch rear, threaded to feed into receiver. Birmingham proofs under diminutive schnabel tip forearm retained by a single key. Microgroove rifling. Frame engraving with pheasants in a meadow scene on both sides. Turning breech controlled by underlever with added gas shield on left side. Swivel breech with four holes for use with a special primer or fulminate disc. Top of swivel breech and tang engraved with well done English scroll. Double detent breech lock to prevent sliding during firing. Nicely filed cock. Checkered wrist in point pattern, "53" stamped at heel of stock. Buttplate engraved en suite at heel. CONDITION: Very good. Barrel essentially dove grey with scattered areas of old inactive oxidation and silvering to octagonal edges. Frame has been cleaned in the European fashion to a dove grey over some areas of oxidation. Wood is very good as carefully preserved, lightly sanded and revarnished, with some softening to checkering and shy to metal in a few areas. An attractive rifle with a clever ignition system. Action works appropriately when cycled by hand, bore is very good with strong rifling and darkness in grooves. EW

CORRECTION: Wood has normal bumps and bruises throughout from use; there is a small grain separation in front of the cock.
