Rhoda .45 Express Double Rifle

A very good Rodda side lock ejector double rifle in .450 Express. The rifle has mint bores and has been well refinished. It is clearly a W&C Scott rifle and features Indicator’ locks with gilt tumblers visible through the transparent windows in the lock-plates.

A splendid rifle that if shot should perform very well.


PRICE: £7500
