Williams which is on the outside of an original leather case that comes with the rifle, checkered forend with horn forend tip,, good to VG bore, good rifling but some light pitting in the grooves, casehardening is mostly faded but engraving & markings are VG, 90% blue, VG wood with some figure, complete with original oak & leather case plus original boxed set of reloading accessories in the original box marked "450 #2 Musket", I have never seen a set of tools like this in the original case, also original early brass paper patch mold in VG condition, case is in good condition, very rare rifle, I have only seen 3 Webley Wileys, this is the first in the hunting configuration, Grant has information on this rifle in his book "More Single Shot Rifles" on page 257 & 259, they were used in the early Creedmore Matches & were very successful, also over on page 130 & 131 in the book "Target Rifles & Australia 1860 to 1900" by J.E. Corcoran there is more information on this rifle, possibly the only Webley Wiley Sporting Rifle in existence, person I got the gun from said he purchased it from an Oregon Family who used it back in the buffalo hunting days.
