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.
Fine engraving with the devil between the hammers and the explosion motif at the pinfire pin holes.
Special Thanks to Daryl Hallquist for sharing this fine piece of history!
