The 1866 Yellowboy lever-action rifle was a marked improvement over the Henry rifle. The Yellowboy had a convenient new type of loading gate, devised by Winchester plant superintendent Nelson King (King’s Improvement). The gate passed cartridges through the side of the receiver. This improvement made the lever action more functional and allowed for the installation of a wooden fore-end integrating a round sealed magazine which was covered by the fore stock. The rifles chambered in the rimfire .44 Henry were nicknamed the "Yellow Boy" because of its "brass" receiver (actually a bronze alloy called gunmetal). This is a rare to find original example of the yellow boy saddle carbine in .44 Henry Flat RF calibre. It has a 20” blued barrel and measures 39 ¼” overall. The barrel's rifled bore has staining consistent with age & use. It’s all original wood work has just bumps and bruises to be expected.

Georgian Era Indian / Afghan North West Frontier .650 Calibre Flintlock Jezail Rifle With English Lock By Henry Nock, Wood Stock Ornately Decorated With Mother Of Pearl & Brass. Sn 16762 - 16762
Henry Nock (1741–1804) was a British inventor and engineer of the Napoleonic period, best known as a gunsmith. As well as supplying the military and civilian markets, Nock made expensive pieces for the aristocracy and Royalty and was an appointed gun maker to the King. Nock's business eventually became Wilkinson Sword. The Jezail was a simple, cost-efficient and often handmade muzzle-loading long arm commonly used in British India, Central Asia and parts of the Middle East. Jezails were generally handmade weapons, and consequently they widely varied in their construction. Jezails were seen as very personal weapons, and unlike the typical military weapons of the time which were very plain and utilitarian, Jezails tended to be well crafted and were usually intricately decorated. Jezails tended to have very long barrels. The firing mechanism was typically either a matchlock or a flintlock. Since flintlock mechanisms were complex and difficult to manufacture, many Jezails used the lock mechanism from captured or broken Brown Bess & other muskets. The stocks were handmade and ornately decorated, featuring a distinctive curve which is not seen in the stocks of other muskets. The function of this curve is debated; it may be purely decorative, or it may have allowed the Jezail to be tucked under the arm and cradled tightly against the body, as opposed to being held to the shoulder like a typical musket or rifle. During the Anglo Afghan Wars the Jezail was the primary ranged weapon of Afghan warriors and was used with great effect against British troops. This is a very good quality Indian flintlock Jezail with lock by Henry Nock. It has a 36” long steel barrel with flared muzzle and brass barrel bands. The barrel has fixed sights. The rifled bore has staining and residue consistent with age and use. It measures 52” overall length. The English musket lock is signed by the lock maker ‘H. Nock’. Its wood stock is intricately hand inlaid with pieces of Mother of Pearl and brass. It has the typical Jezail curved butt. The wood and metal have the wear and patina to be expected of a native Indian weapon of its age. It has a steel ram rod. AS is common with these native Jezails, the action does not work. The price includes UK delivery. NB As an antique flintlock weapon no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 16762

The Brunswick rifle was a large calibre (.704) muzzle-loading percussion rifle manufactured for the British Army by Enfield in the early 19th century.
