And takes a cartridge case. Single shot under lever release, tip down 8 bore that features a heavy 35 1/2" barrel with finely checkered forend attached with barrel wedge and a horn inset. Stock is straight English style with right side plate and hammer. Original solid red recoil pad Excellent clean bore. Single front bead sight. Has Birmingham proofs. Checkered walnut stocks are in excellent condition with sharp checkering and no cracks. Side plate is stamped G,E, Lewis. 13 3/4" LOP. Locks up tight. Comes with a hand made wooden case with cleaning rod and brushes. These market guns are rarely seen today with any condition.
