NSN, .577 Snider, 36 1/2" barrel with an excellent, bright bore that has strong rifling. This London-proofed rifle has a “(Crown) / VR" and “LAC / JAs. KERR & Co. / 54 KING / WILLIAM St. EC" marked lockplate, while the metal has an overall warm, plum-brown patina throughout, including on the “LONDON / ARMOURY"-marked breech-block. The brass trigger guard and nosecap have a fairly bright yellow-ochre patina, while the walnut stock has a ruddy oil finish added over scattered minor handling marks and surface blemishes. Nevertheless, a crisp London Armoury Co. cartouche is present on the right side of the buttstock. An original ramrod is included, no sling swivels are fitted, and the action lock-up is tight and fully functional. These well-made rifles were used in military rifle matches, and this example is fine-near excellent condition overall. Antique
