It doesn't look that bad to me but I know you're going to do her up right.

Thx Hawg.

Search..and you shall find..

There was a bit of debate on the subject on another forum. This due that Hughes bought rather many Enfield produced Whitworths (-62 and -63 pattern) and bored these out to become shotguns,which were mainly for export.

Well. This rifle sports a Monkey tail barrel right but i was still weary as to IF..so wrote the auctioneer and asked for a couple of pics of the muzzle of the gun.
They came through and no doubt that there is an octagonal muzzle. Ie;a Monkey tail barrel,exactly what i thought. So..in short this is a high accuracy "451" rifle.

Now...
