Found in the old Palace of Lagan Silikanna Nepal in 2003, this is all that remains of a spectacular big game rifle of the 18th century. Octagonal sided measuring 32" in length and featuring a massive very heavily rifled 1" bore.

The back sight still in place the back end of the barrel has a quality inlaid "touch mark" of "BASS, LONDON" who is recorded as working from 1770 to 1780 when the name changed to TWIGG & BASS. The touchhole is gold lined. Included is the fore stock broken off at the front of the trigger guard.
