For me, it's sad that in the above exhibition at the National Museum of Scotland it's displayed in its case.

I'm told that rifles should always be displayed thus, but I couldn't see the majesty of it that way.

Goodness gracious that is a travesty. It's almost a back-handed compliment: "Oh, and here is a GUN, but we don't want you to see it fully assembled as a GUN, but broken down into its constituent parts that you can barely see or comprehend how together they could be a GUN..."

There are a couple of other rifles, including a Henry, in the exhibition, shown in their entirety … so they "could" have.

Rifles in a museum or similar display are always hung up so viewers get as close to a 360 as possible. Many have mirrors to show the off side when the gun is reclining.
