Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. Now this is a real man's rifle. Possibly for use in a Howdah, the compartment on the back of an Elephant, as this double rifle is fitted with just 24" barrels making it a very versatile weapon.

Beautiful features of this rifle include engraved hammers, lock plates and barrel tang indicate that this was a quality Victorian weapon from the mid 19th Century. The central part of each lock plate appears to have had the Gun Maker's name removed for unknown reasons.

Found in our discovery from the Old Palace of Lagan Silikana in Kathmandu, Nepal this is one double rifle that really did see service hunting Tigers and other big game on the Asian continent during the Victorian era.

Completely restored by the renowned Antique gunsmith Norman Sutton.
