Original Item: Only One Available. This is a really nice little gun. Only 40" overall, it may have been made for one of the Children of the Nepalese Royal family featuring an original late model flintlock ignition system with roller on the frizzen spring, circa 1820.

Half Stocked in high quality wood, the Octagonal 25" barrel (about .50" bore) undoubtedly originally rifled with thick walls is probably now almost smooth bored from use. Nicely engraved tang, trigger guard and butt plate with, quality silver inlaid lines to barrel rear. Frizzen shows severe earlier pitting but never the less it is a very presentable item. Ideal for decoration, NOT for use. Fully restored by master gunsmith Norm Sutton all original parts except a replacement ramrod and one brass ramrod pipe that completing the offering.

IMA considers all of our antique guns as non-firing, inoperable and/or inert. Title 18, U.S. Code, Section 921(a)(16) defines antique firearms as all guns made prior to 1899. This law exempts antique firearms from any form of gun control or special engineering because they are not legally considered firearms. No FFL, C&R or any license is required to posses, transport, sell or trade Antique guns. All rifles and muskets sold by IMA that were manufactured prior to 1899 are considered Antiques by the US BATF (United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms). Therefore, all of IMA's Antique guns may be shipped to all US States and most nations around the world.

These antique guns are not sold in “live” condition. They are sold as collector’s items or as “wall hangers”. Any attempt at restoring an antique gun to be operational is strongly discouraged and is done so at the risk of the customer. By purchasing an antique gun from IMA you thereby release IMA, its employees and corporate officers from any and all liability associated with use of our Antique guns.
