Lot 1075 Details

Description
SN21098" calibrated head and recoil spring."E. M. Reilly & Co 10-bore (2 1/2) bar-action hammer gun SN21098
Barrel length: 28""; Chambers: 2 1/2""; Chokes: IC / IC; Material: Damascus; Rib: game; Locks: bar action sidelock hammer; Operating lever: Jones under lever; Stock Length: 14 1/8""; Grip type: semi-pistol; Weight: appx. 7lb 4oz.

A good quality wildfowling gun still legal for the taking of waterfowl in the United States.

The rebounding bar-action locks with plain finish and without engraving. Blued hammers and furniture.

The action with Jones 1859 patent screw grip and rotary under-lever percussion type fences and removable hinge pin. The action barrels locks and woodwork exhibit a high standard of workmanship and are of good quality materials.

The 14 1/8"" figured walnut stock with checkered semi-pistol grip and unengraved silver oval sling swivel and steel butt-plate. The matching checkered forend of splinter style with engraved and blued metal parts and Deeley & Edge patent catch.

The 28"" browned fine Damascus barrels have been re-proofed in London with 2 1/2"" chambers; chokes approximately True Cylinder in both barrels. The rib is of the tapered concave game type with a brass bead at the muzzles. It is engraved at the breech-end with scrolls and traces of the maker's name and address remains visible. A sling swivel is fitted to the bottom rib.

The gun is a high-quality plainly finished gun by a top London Maker. The barrels may have been shortened.

Other Notes: Joseph Charles Reilly started business as a jeweller at 12 Middle Row Holborn in 1816 (when his son Edward Michael Reilly was born) but as was common in those days he also sold guns. In 1832 Edward joined him in the business and by 1835 they were trading together as gunmakers at 316 High Holborn moving regularly over the years before separating. Edward began trading on his own account as 'E. M. Reilly & Co' in 1869. As well as the London shop Reilly also opened premises in Paris and in 1898 upon the death of his father Edward inherited that business. In 1911 probably on the retirement or death of Edward Reilly the firm became a limited liability company and in 1912 they moved to 13 High Street Marylebone.
Reilly guns are generally of high quality and many are of the very best quality. The firm made a wide range of guns for the game and live-pigeon shooter and since the firm traded throughout the most inventive period of gunmaking history the variety of Reilly guns encountered is wide."
