Beautiful rifle! As others have said the Scots really knew how to make an express rifle.

Nice case colors left on that one!

Always thought the non-rebounding were on early rifles as left over from the percussion era. Rebounding hammer as well as changes in the hammers themselves certainly evolved. Alex was one of the best.

I've read that a man named Stanton invented the rebounding hammer locks in 1867-1868. I figure anything with non rebounding hammers is prior to 1870 for a general rule.
