  • Model: Snider
  • Caliber: .577

  • Description: Serial #2690, .577 Snider, 36 1/2 barrel with a very good, bright bore that has some minor freckling along its length. This is a high grade rifle with decorative engraving on the lockplate and hammer, that has an overall warm, plum-brown patina throughout with evenly scattered areas of mild freckling, some pinprick pitting at the muzzle, a series of small impact marks on the receiver and breech-block, and an even plum-brown on the TIDDER & SMITH / LONDON marked lock. The 5001 marked brass trigger guard and nosecap have a mild yellow-ochre patina, while the walnut stock has a light military oil finish added over scattered minor handling marks and surface blemishes. A small Thomas Turner roundel is stamped into the right side of the butt, and is still partially legible. A heavily pitted steel ramrod is included, but there is no firing pin protector present. The action lock-up is tight and fully functional, and this is a very nice looking commercial Snider in very good overall condition. Antique
