BAKER.62Cal Original Volunteer Baker Rifle

£8995.

 

.62Cal Original Volunteer Baker Rifle by Ketland. Atributed to the Ayrshire Rifles. Mention is made of these rifles in Howard Blackmore's book "British Military Firearms 1650 - 1850.  These rifles can be identified by having a slit-stock with no Buttbox, on which the line of the stock runs straight from the toe of the butt to the trigger, instead of being shaped over the trigger guard,  and a plain fixed backsight.   In March 1810, the Ayrshire Rifles' commanding officer, Lt-Col. Hamilton, was allowed the regulation price of muskets, provided they were regarded as public property. Very clean example. £8995.
