Westley Richards 1874 Monkey tail carbine  Guns > Rifles > Antique (Pre-1899) Rifles - Perc. Misc.
Description: This is a British WESTLEY RICHARDS .450 cal breech loading, percussion carbine with a 24" Whitworth rifled barrel. The lock is dated '1874' (behind the hammer) inside of the Westley Richards Triangle trademark and is marked "WESTLEY RICHARDS & Co." ahead of the hammer. Metal surfaces of carbine are a pleasing brown patina with very little pitting present. All markings are clear and legible. The stock is of walnut and rates very good plus with most of it's original finish and nice edges. The breech lever is lifted by the 'monkey tail' to load the gun. It is interesting to note that while the British have developed many inovations in the firearms field, Westley Richards was making a breech loading percussion carbine 14 years after we were converting percussing to metalic cartridge, and 6 years after we began production of the 1868 Trapdoor.
