8 Bore "Clobber Pipe"....
      23/10/20 12:46 PM

Finally, after ~25 years without (nice my last) 8 bore.
Just a "teaser" couple of pictures of my newly adopted G.E. Lewis 8 bore full rifle double rifle.
15lbs 8oz, 26" barrels, 3 1/4" chambers, and ~.855" groove-groove with a 1-90" twist. A bit of fine pitting/roughness in first 2" of bores, otherwise excellent.
Circa 1880 or so

A sympathetic restoration to be sure, likely done in the UK; well done period re-case colors, re-brown barrel, replacement stock & perhaps forend, re-pointed checkering..... not grossly over polished.....a very nice job of it, wood fit is superb.

More in the next few days....
- Mike

EDIT: yes, yes....that is "only" a 3" 8 bore sample cartridge alongside the Lewis.....
