This is a beautiful condition example of the iconic P53 .577 Snider Tower Rifle. This example has the beautiful woodwork and action. The metal work shows almost no signs of frosting and has a flawless lock. The lock on this example is dated 1871 and has a clear British Crown. Full Broad arrow marked on the action so this example is definitely a British Military issued example and not a commercially manufactured example. The front section of woodwork looks to have been replaced from another example. Looks like a period woodwork repair. 

Antique/Obsolete caliber –  No license required.
