Albini-Braendlin British trials rifle by William Powell & Son. Overall length is approximately 48½”. The 30½” round .577 centerfire caliber barrel has an excellent bore.

The brass nose cap, trigger guard, and butt plate are fine. The stock is fine with sharp edges and no chips or cracks. There are a handful of handling dents with most on the right butt stock. The barrel has the unusual Birmingham proofs and caliber (25) marks. Lock is marked “Wm. Powll & Son”. The breechblock front has a crown with “A&B” inside.
