Alex Henry Side by Side Breech Loading Double Rifle

An exceptional Alex Henry of Edinburgh double rifle in .45 caliber, with damascus twist patterns on the barrels, fine engraving on the back-action locks, and breeches, and case hardened lock plate safeties. The stock has an especially handsome grain to it, and there is handsome carving and checkering on the pistol grip and forend. The breech opens by way of a lever under the trigger guard. There is a cap box in the steel cap on the pistol grip. The top of the barrels is engraved “Alexr. Henry 12 South St. Andrew St. Edinburgh Patent Nos. 1351 and 250.” It is serial number on the trigger guard and underneath each barrel with the initials “AH” and the number 2016, which suggests that it was made before 1871. Dimensions: 45 inches long overall, with 28 inch barrels. Processing and shipping within the continental U.S. $65.00 plus 1.5% replacement cost insurance. 

 

Condition:

Overall excellent. There is a tiny chip missing from the forend. The barrels are grey on the outside. The bores are excellent with outstanding rifling. The action is excellent with sharp edges.
