Lot 0246
This lot features a Engraved 19th Century Belgium Flobert .32 RF Parlor Rifle. The rifle features a 23 1/2" octagon barrel, Warnant type action, Checkered hardwood stock, ornate trigger guard, and blue'd finish. The “E/LG/*” within an oval indicates the final proof in Liege, Belgium, after 1856 and before July 9, 1893, when a crown was added on top of the oval. The three main Flobert variants are described and illustrated in Single Shot Rifles And Actions by Frank De Haas. Many Floberts were made of very soft steel and designed to sell at the lowest possible price. In 1920, when a box of 100 blackpowder .22 shorts cost 21 cents, the price of a new Flobert rifle was about $2.50. This rifle shows good condition for its age. The finish shows great patina with little to no pitting. The mechanics are fully functioning. The bore shows some pitting with shallow rifling. The rear sight is missing. This is a antique firearm. NO FFL transfer or NICS background check required.
