A RICHARD JEFFERY PINFIRE DOUBLE

The gun is marked Richard Jeffery, Guildsford. On the action is stamped “J Wilkes” who must have been the actioner.
It is marked with an engraved Dougall Patent Lockfast on the underside of the receiver.

10 bore weighing about 7lb 5 oz.

The gun came in it’s original case with many loading tools including a George Jeffries patent reloading device.

Another item is the tool used to remove the forend pin. I have never seen one of these before, although I think many should exist.  Other items are an inserting device for repriming, case cutter, powder and shot measures, turnscrew, string bore cleaner, etc.
