This is an immaculate condition example of the iconic P53 .577 Snider Tower Rifle.
This example has beautiful woodwork and working action. The metal work shows only light signs of pitting and has it still holds around 90% of its original bluing/browning.
The lock is clearly marked Tower and VR Crown Marked. Full Broad arrow marked so this example is definetly a military model and not a commercially manufactured example.
Small cut to barrel so sold as curio only. Antique/Obsolete calibre – no licence required.
