British Reilly-Comblain Breechloading Trails Rifle (AL5122)

British Reilly-Comblain breechloading trails rifle. Overall length is approximately 49”. The 29¾” round .577 caliber centerfire barre has an excellent bore. The barrel and receiver has approximately 95% blue. The breechblock, lock, and hammer are case colored, with good colors on the lock and hammer and less on the breechblock. The stock is very fine with sharp edges and no cracks or chips. Barrel is marked with the usual London proofs and caliber (25) mark. The breech is marked “E.M. Reilly & Co/ Sole manufactures/ New Oxford St/ London”. Stock is marked in ¼” letters on the right butt in an oval warranted “ by/ E.M. Reilly & Co/ London & Paris”. There are also two small inspection stamps to the rear of the trigger guard tang. The action is operated by rotating the lever on the right to the up position. This raises the breechblock. The action functions correctly. This is a great example of an early breechloading trials rifle that the well-known Belgian inventor, Hubert-Joseph Comblain, participated in the design. It’s ready for any British Trials rifle or early cartridge rifle collection. This is the only example we have seen.
