.45 Cal Percussion Swivel Breech by Numrich Arms
Used with some handling marks, great bore. Weighs just over 8lbs, so it's quite handy for a double barrel gun. Barrel swivel detents are nice and solid. Seems in decent shape overall. These are fairly uncommon so if you're thinking about playing with a swivel breech this is about as affordable as it gets.

Is it a true .45? Some of those Numrich barrels were .44s but labeled .45. I also like the wenders, but I never found a need for the second barrel.

I have one T Briggs updated with a stronger L+R back action lock.Nice accurate rifles, I use a .440 ball. These are hard to find these days.

Recently sold mine, it was a nice rifle, my biggest problem, both barrels have sights and when carrying it seemed my hand was always on the lower barrel sights, not comfortable

Neat rifle. I sold Numrich in my shop back in the day. But, I don't remember that model. I bet it would be a good seller if offered today. And, betcha yers will sell quickly.

I gave one to my father back in the '70s. He hunted with it; however the mainspring was a little weak. I always wanted to restock it , and put a back action lock on it, too. My brother currently owns it , and keeps it in memory of our father.

Were these made for a round ball or a elongated bullet? I had one 50 years ago and seem to remember loading round balls.
