B. Halliday & Co. .470 Boxlock Double Rifle

Serial Number 1800



Fine B. Halliday & Co. .470 boxlock ejector double rifle, built in the Birmingham trade and retailed by Halliday at their 63 Cannon Street, London Address. The rifle is built on an Anson & Deeley, fixed lock, double trigger action with Tigers and Indian Elephant scenes engraving with a nicely executed scroll surround. 

The 26” barrels have tidy bores and the rifle shoots a very respectable group (See Explora blog for details). They feature a file cut, quarter rib with Dolls Head Extension. A rear express sight with one standing and two folding leaves regulated at 100, 200 & 300 yards and a single bead ramp  foresight. 

The pistol grip stock measures 14 ¼” to the centre of the traditional recoil pad with an extended tang, grip cap and silver stock. The splinter forend features the Anson push rod release.

The rifle is cased with accessories and is a super rifle in very good condition. Ready for its next safari.
