Massive Scottish 8 Bore Percussion Rifle, by Ogilvie, 43'' fullstock Damascus twist barrel, lightly engraved bright lockplate and hammer, engraved brass triggerguard with acorn finial, double set adjustable trigger, perchbelly full-length cheekpiece walnut stock, steel cleaning rod, with four brass retaining tubes. Barrel plug with two platina bands showing additional light scroll engraving; breech area top flat marked ''Wm Ogilvie''. Includes two-leaf rear sight, 16-ray sun design to top of barrel, and steel blade front sight. Percussion bolster and lockplate dates this firearm to approx. 1835-1840. Mfg'd for Big Game use in either Africa or India, the sun symbol was used in the 19th Century for firearms destined for these locations according to some references. The Ogilvie family of gunmaking was first noted in the 1750s, and a Birmingham proofmark appears on the underside of this Damascus barrel. Condition is about fine. Front sight is a handmade replacement for the original, and the stock shows several repairs down its length. Barrel remains a pleasing lightly toning silver/brown color; lockplate and hammer are bright. Left side of barrel plug tang shows a professionally accomplished repair through stock. Action and set trigger function well, 9-groove bore is fine. Est.: $4,500-$6,000. (Antique)
