Anschutz .222 Sporting Rifle c/w Variable Scopesight

An excellent .222 Anschutz bolt action rifle fitted with a Tasco variable telescopic sight. This rifle dates back to the 1970s and was used by the captain of the Norwegian Moving Target Team and has a ported barrel. Having said this, the rifle shows little signs of use apart from minor blemishes to the finish to the stock.

French Infantry Rifle

A rare example of France’s first attempt to arm their Voiltigeurs with a rifle in 1793.

This rifle is in very good condition and is one of the first models, has a 25&1/2”octagonal barrel rifled with seven deep grooves making about three quarters of a turn in the length of the barrel. The original sighting grooves that were not very successful are retained and a better conventional fore and rear sight has been fitted. The operation of the lock and steel is excellent and there is no damage to the stock. The rifle is fitted with its original sling swivels and an old sling. A slight alteration has been carried out to the forestock near the muzzle to facilitate ramrod removal.

The lock is stamped Manuf. De Versailles and the breech bears the stamp we are told of the armourer working for Boutet.


PRICE: £3500
