Manton Farquharson for Sale
      #307789 - 15/11/17 07:07 AM

Manton & Co. Farquharson in 400/360 $4250
Apparently Manton had a lot to say back in the early 20th Century.
The barrel is incribed "Manton & Co. Gunmakers, Calcutta by Appointment To H. E. The Viceroy "400 / 360 2 3/4 Solid Case" over "40 Grs Cordite 300 Grs Soft
Nose Nickel Bullet"
This is a solid rifle. The bore is clean with zero pitting. The action looks to be nickel plated with standard trade style engraving. There is some engraving on the
barrel breech which doesn't match exactly to the action but nice.
There is a hole in the top tang and a corresponding hole in the wood just to the rear of the top tang for a Lyman type sight.
I have a Lyman peep sight that fits if the buyer wants it.
The top tang sits proud of the wood on the edges.
100yd standing and 200 & 300yd folding leaves. The trigger looks to be gold plated but is blacked over.
Barrel, safety, under lever, grip cap and trigger guard are blacked.

Any interest in a trade for a Mauser Model A in 9.3x62, Chas. Heyer of Nairobi retailed and marked?

Beautiful piece of kit there Huvius!
It's a shame you want to sell such a pretty lady such as this one, but then sometimes something comes along that takes you fancy & you're a bit short...bugger!
Hope you have a win matey!
Cheers
