Hello my friends from the UK,
Recently a friend of mine asked me to gather technical info and values on a couple 'circa 1900' black powder centre fire rifles. These are real nifty. I love 'em both.
First is a Spandau 71/84 (11mm) Mauser. A true testament to old school German engineering.
The second on is a Remington Rolling Block #1 1/2 Sporter...likely a .43 Spanish calibre. Needs to have a chamber casting done to confirm calibre.
Just thought i'd share a few pics for your enjoyment. They have been 'reworked' (many moons ago) so they are not worth what i thought they would be to a collector, but they are completely functional and certainly fun to play with . Very admirable!
Are you folks in the UK permitted to hunt with old goodies like these?? just curious.
Here's a few pics of each:
And now the Rolling Block
