An outstanding .450 calibre Daniel Fraser back position match rifle no 5/409 complete with its full suite of fore and back sights: the elements are contained in the original shagreen covered velvet lined box. Barrel markings “John Rigby and Co, Dublin and London”. “Re-bored and re-rifled by Daniel Fraser & Co. Edinburgh”. This is a very early rifle, with the number lower than any in the existing records: it must have been rebarrelled by Fraser in its working life.
Condition: The rifle retains some 90% of its original finish, with faded case hardening colours to the plain action and original blue to the barrel. The stock has minor dings in places but is clean and crisp throughout with original finish. Antique OGEL
