What a crime! I have no idea what I am looking at, however they look great! Lovely old guns...
Why are they being destroyed?
Is the bottom one a Martini Henry?
Could do with a couple firing pins. My uncles mate pulled the triggers on one of his guns and broke them. Not sure what they are like but ould probably get a pic. If this is something you could help with would be great. Gun smith says not worth the cost but it's a decent old gun just for want of pins.
Thanks. I'll try find out what they are like.
They are being destroyed because they are not safe, It would cost more than they are worth to repair them or even de-activate them.
The bottom gun is a greener shotgun.
Just let me know what type of action the gun is, If i have something similar i will chop the action so it can not be used then post it to you. Then you can strip it at your lessure.
Thanks Trev. I'll give uncle a call see what it is.
why cant you just destroy the barrels then?
leaving a myriad of original spares
what is the rolling block at the bottom? Looks nice
if they are going could I have the two stocks 2nd and 3rd from the top? opposite each other
if only to save a nice looking peice of walnut
happy to pay shipping, handling, tea and biscuit tax
PM me if that is OK

Trev,I would like a couple of nice...ish shotgun butts to make a matching pair of side table lamps when I get the time if there are any spare mate.let me know what you want for them.
quite a bit of money in spare parts there
2nd from the top, is that an 1874 Sharps rifle?
