Obsolete calibres       Updated 5th January 2017

Welcome to one of our newer pages. We have been accumulating a small number of obsolete calibre firearms over the past year or so, mostly as an extension to Roger's hobby interest in many of these old firearms!    However, due to Sheila's insistance we (she) has decided to offer some of these for sale. Although Roger may have fired some of the rifles shown they are all offered for collecting only under Section 58 of the Firearms Act which means that no licence is required to purchase them. Should you wish to fire any of them this will be entirely at your own risk and they must be entered on your FAC before doing so and we would strongly advise that the gun is submitted to one of the Proof Houses for testing.  We should also point out that we do not claim to be experts in this field....just possessed with a total and absorbing fascination for these fine old guns! However we will try to answer any questions you may have as best we can, and will happily take further photographs of any particular part which you may require.

NB. Following recent changes to firearms legislation certain offences and lengths of custodial sentences passed means that we will need to ask purchasers of Section 58 firearms to sign a disclosure that they are not prohibited from possessing such firearms.

Ongoing health problems and lack of time has meant that we have finding it difficult to find the time to photograph many of these rifles so please bear with us. Meanwhile here is a short list of some Section 58 items available for sale and we will try to post some images soon:

.44 Remington percussion revolver ........ £1,100

12.7 x 44 Husqvarna rolling block rifle in sound, clean condition all round. The barrel shows a fair amount of pitting but also very strong rifling consistent with the use of black powder cartridges. The receiver has the date 1878. The stock is tight and sound with no cracks or splits. The rfile shows an excellent trigger pull ...... £595


More to come so please check back again soon ................
