This early 19th-century American fowling rifle exemplifies the exceptional craftsmanship characteristic of that era. It showcases a classic hair trigger mechanism, typical for its time, and bears the stamped emblem of the rampant lion, symbolizing its sale to the East India Company around 1858. The rifle has undergone a smoothbore modification, possibly due to its subsequent issue to Indian troops after the mutiny, who were provided with outdated weapons in case of any potential future rebellions. This makes it a desirable item for collectors and enthusiasts alike.

Length: 55 inches.
Good condition.
