It's a beautiful weapon.What one will go to make a place?
Nary a one, Sir. Seems that my FEO has seen sense..................but then we've never met. :)

BTW, this is what the 'on-ticket' page of my new FAC currently looks like. If you look at the bottom, you'll see authorisation for 2 x .577 rifles [my two Sniders, currently Section 58(Obsolete calibre antiques]) and 1 x .451 rifle - the Whitworth, when I can get it.

Have you noticed that I live in UK?

In any case, this has been in the offing most of this year. It takes that long to get authorisation for any new or replacement firearm.

'sides, finding one here, and getting it to you would likely cost as much as the gun.

Good to be forgibbed.

Now, I've been looking on your side of the water, and they DO come up now and then.

However, IF you find one, and it looks like this, talk to me afore ye buys it -

Y'see the front sight is fine, it's just that the rifle under it is the wrong way around.
