    Enclosed are couple of percussion restoration one by a London maker Lancaster in 12 bore which was in a bad condition but after some carefully restoration did turn out to a reasonable condition ,another feature about this gun was it is number one of a pair maybe number two is still going but where .
    Gun two is by a provincial maker it also is unusual because it is a 14 bore with 36 inch barrels for a original sporting gun is not often seen.

    There is something rather lovely about British cased guns or rifles.

    Heelerau yes I agree the only trouble now is the UK market is over run with original and repro muzzle loading guns and rifles and the price has dropped to a all time low .

    Time to buy.....

    Remember seeing British cased guns as a kid and just staring at them in awe.

    Thought there would have been more interest in this thread maybe I entered it in the wrong forum but thought it would have been a help to builders .

    I have need to build a couple of cases for British sporting rifles. I have a tame cabinet maker, and a source of some fittings.

    Is that also the case (depressed prices) for the fine British cartridge guns, or just confined to muzzle loaders?

    Any reason that you would care to speculate on as to the root cause? (temporary glut, or something more permanent, like the urbanization of British society)?
