P-1837 Brunswick 2 Groove Rifle w/ Sword Bayonet, Untouched
The Brunswick 2 groove rifle was the first British percussion military rifle to succeed the famous Baker flintlock of the Napoleonic era. Originally designed with 11 groove rifling, this Hanoverian design was rejected in favor of the standard 2 groove “belted ball” .704 caliber rifle. Issued exclusively to the British home army and Indian army rifle regiments, our Brunswick rifles date from the earlier back action design. No patch box lid available. The Sword Bayonet is brass hilted Colonial issue with a knuckle guard. No scabbard included.
All show extensive use but each appears, by and large, to be complete. They may, or may not function, once the thick layer of congealed dirt, grime, grease and rust are removed, and may suffer from cracks and breaks which is to be expected after more than a century of neglect. Again only offered in AS IS condition; complete with caked on debris from battle and storage. There are NO Guarantees other than that each gun is completely genuine and very old. These relics should be likened to an archaeological dig, so no unreasonable demands or gripes please. Now offered at a bargain price for the enthusiast to enjoy as is or to spend the time and TLC to carefully restore; each weapon is REAL, ANTIQUE and is offered AS FOUND. Picture is a typical example; each weapon will vary of course. There is a $10.00 additional shipping & handling charge with item, cannot be shipped USPS. We can hand select the best rifle for an additional fee of $50.00.
Each gun will feature:
The barrel and action (which may be incomplete), reproduction butt plate (if missing) and sword bayonet #600813. There is no guarantee for any other parts.
Condition: usually show rust & pitting and be covered in dirt as originally stored. Otherwise they may not operate because of seizing or could be otherwise incomplete. Plus there may be additional cracks, missing chunks, old repairs.
Note: These guns were
manufactured before 1898 and are therefore legally considered antiques.
