Original Item: One-of-a-kind. As seen on History Channel’s Pawn Stars, this is an exceptionally rare. We believe that this is a prototype as there are no other known examples in existence.
The rifle is beautifully constructed with a Damascus twist barrel, gilt inlaid script that reads Ezekiel Baker London and Gunmaker to His Majesty across the top of the barrel. Lock is is marked E. Baker. The caliber is .65 and it has a heavily rifled bore.
The unique aspect is that the breech has a rotating lever which allows the shooter to load it from the breech. This lever has two distinct benefits over a muzzle loading rifle; it allows a larger caliber ball to be inserted which greatly improves accuracy of the rifle and it speeds the loading process significantly.
The gun measures 41.5 inches in overall length with a 31.5 inch barrel. It features iron mounts which all bear decorative engraving. Classic half stock with finely checkered wrist. Overall condition is excellent with a small area of pitting about half way down the barrel. Perfectly functional as seen on the Pawn Stars episode which can be seen below..
