Thomas Bland, extremely rare 4-bore single barrel rifle with extra shotgun barrel, ca. 1900. Weight 16 1/2 lbs. 14 1/2" LOP. Superb 27" steel rifle barrel with integral forged full length top rib and absolutely mint bore. Single fixed rear sight for 50yds. with two folding leaves for 100 and 150yds. Barrel engraved "charge 14 drams, conical ball". Rare top lever opening action with rebounding hammer, bar action, sidelock all retaining much of the original color hardening. Comes with an extra 44" Damascus 4-bore shotgun barrel supplied with its own oak case. Unlike most 4-bore rifles which actually have bore diameters in the 6-bore range this magnificent gun is a true 4-bore (and so marked) with a bore diameter of 1.052". Comes complete with a number of custom made brass cartridge cases, conical bullet mould, and sizing dies. Cased in a custom case and ready for Africa. Doubtful you will ever see a finer 4-bore single rifle/shotgun combination for sale at any price.
