Check it out on my blog:

Neat gun.

This blog is a non-commercial hobby of mine. I've resolved to do more with it in 2010.

We'll see how long it lasts.

Good God!

See the "260.00" price penciled on the case label?

I don't know how to date a Reilly by the label, but I'm guessing it's from the early 60's.
I'm also guessing that it may have been converted from pinfire, possibly a rebarreled rifle...
See those fences?
See how shallow they are?
Note that they have typical pinfire-action 'shields'?
The hammers don't quite look 'right' with the rest of the metalwork, and I can see a hammer strike mark on the top of the right fence, evidence of the firing pin guides on the standing breech faces - since filed/stoned off...

Whatever it was to start, it's cool as can be right now - pity on the rust but someone will be putting it right...




Cheers

Thanks for the heads up. I bid but wouldn't go to the required amount without inspection. $5170 including buyer's premium. It will be one screaming gun when filed up a bit.

Since no one has any skin in the game, what do you think a restoration would run for this fine old waterfowler?

The rust may peel right off, be easily removed with files and emery, or not. Barrels restruck. Forend iron would need cleaning and reengraving. Forend wood needs stripping and reoiling. Price, very little to a whole lot. My estimate, somewhere in the middle. The price allows for a lot of work.

Very interested to see this Reilly as I own an 1870 hammergun by the same maker and am keen to look into a Reilly 8 bore to use sometime in the future here in the UK. The label showing the Rue Scribe address would imply a manufacture date around 1870 and there are several facets of the action similar to my 12 bore which was made 1870/1871.

Is this the 1870 hammer Reilly you speak of?

Quote:
From Earlier CBL1 Conversation:







These action fences (and the action type) and most other details are completely different.

Do you have another Reilly?
If so, can you post images?


For others in this discussion, here are a couple images of the 4-bore that the orig post brings to our attention...






What you appear to have is a rounded bar-action sidelock snap-action straight-wrist gun.
The 4-bore is a back-action (with sliding stalking safeties...) jones-underlever pistol grip gun that very well may have started life as an 8-bore pinfire rifle.
