RARE BIRMINGHAM BREAK UNDER HAMMER DOUBLE RIFLE 450 BPE
RARE BIRMINGHAM BREAK UNDER HAMMER DOUBLE RIFLE 450 BPE

I’ve seen lots of doubles, from boxlocks and sidelocks, shotguns and rifles, there aren’t a lot of designs I’ve haven’t come across. But I have to say that this double rifle is new to me.

Other than British & cool, I have no idea what itis. It’s 100% new to me. If you know more about it.

  1. A most interesting rifle and possibly unique, although not of the highest quality. It appears to have been made upon the action designed by Alfred Harris of Birmingham, England. British patent number 3327 of 1871. Guns made upon this action appear to be rare. Neither of the eminent firearms historians Ian Crudgington nor his co-author David Baker, had ever seen an actual example at the time that volume II of their work The British Shotgun was published in 1989. A single barrel 16-bore shotgun has surfaced since.

  2. Thanks for the info. It sounds like you’re as obsessed with these things as I am.

    I can see why it was less than popular.

    Have a great day.
