Original 1880s Antique Double Barreled Big Game Rifles- Relic Condition for Restoration
Original Items: Only one lot of three available. These are three double-barreled big game rifles recovered by IMA from the old Palace of Lagen Silikhana in Kathmandu in Nepal in 2003.
These rifles all date from the 1880s so are legally classified as antiques by federal law.
We do not know the exact calibers but suspect they are .450 or .360 the popular sizes for Tiger and other large game hunting. All are basically double barrels with breach mechanisms and are lacking butts and locks. Please examine the posted images carefully so you fully understand what you a purchasing.
These are intended for the dedicated Gunsmith restorer who knows what he is doing. If in perfect condition these sorts of antique hunting rifles could command over $10,000 each, but that is not what we are offering here.
Here we give you the basis for a tremendous restoration program, go on, challenges yourself!

- 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.
