Object Detail

A smooth bore .577 calibre percussion short rifle with a plain lock plate and two bands. The hammer and lock plate are from a Snider weapon. The butt strap is marked " TH2/340 ". The rifle also bears 'sold from service' marks.
Credit Line
This weapon is thought to have been assembled as a theatrical or display prop as it is a strange combination of parts which would not be able to be fired in the current configuration.
