*** SOLD TO VIC *** NEW PICS & FINAL PRICE DROP - ANTIQUE Britannia Model 1 .177Cal Air Rifle By C.G. Bonehill, Birmingham With Vintage Box of Marksman pellets. Early Sn No: 5xx - 5xx, which probably dates this to around 1905. The Rifle has now been lightly cleaned and this is in very nice condition. It's original and not been messed about with. I have seen examples in the same cond as this sell for well over £1k.

This is a very rare, Britannia Model 1, Break Action .177 Cal Air Rifle. These rifles were only made in the early 1900s and were very well made. See Dennis Hiller's Book, on page 14 of his book The Collector's Guide To Air Rifles 3rd Edition stated that he has only ever seen 2 of these air rifles.

With all stampings, Address, Patents and S/r Nos on the action. In very good working order - Being quite powerful and accurate! Spring is strong and action all locks up positively.Quality fiddle back walnut stock, much of original blueing intact. No rust or pitting. Butt plate, sights, cylinder end cap; etc, all intact and good. The components are all original, clean and present! This is a rare find in good condition and would definitely suit a connoisseur collector This is priced sensibly and a Britannia in this good shape would cost around £1250.

Priced to sell CHEAP, as I am thinning my collection. No time to respond to offers SORRY and I do not know enough to answer any expert questions or critiques.. Collection in person from Neath preferred or I will courrier at request (cost of £25 - it will need to be very well packed). Over 21s ONLY etc.
