Continental Large Bore Revolving Teat Fire Rifle

.67 caliber, 24.5" round barrel, no S/N. Blued and color casehardened finish, figured, varnished, smooth walnut stock. Unmarked, with the exception of a partial Liege E/LG/* proof on the rear edge of the 6-shot cylinder. Double action only mechanism, Swiss Federal style adjustable leaf rear sight, musket type front sight/bayonet lug. The rifle appears to use some type of proprietary teat fire style self contained ammunition that loaded from the front of the cylinder.


Fine. Retains some of the blued finish with the balance a smooth plum brown patina. Cylinder with most of its color casehardened finish. Mechanically functional, very good bore. Stock with much of the varnish, showing scattered bumps, dings and mars and some minor surface scratches.
