WHITWORTH
MATCH TARGET RIFLE
SERIAL NUMBER F435

 

This is a superb example of an original Whitworth Match Target Rifle.   It is in 451 caliber with a 36 inch heavy barrel.  It has a really nice bore and as you can see, it still has it's complete matching number set of sights and it's original swivel head ramrod.  It has the highest grade lock assembly Whitworth ever put on a rifle.  The lock is made by Joseph Brasier and marked ASHES.  The internal components of this lock look like the inside a Swiss watch.  The gun has a micro-adjustable globe front sight, a helical gear driven rear sight and a vernier tang sight.  The globe front sight and tang vernier sight have a variety of interchangeable sight apertures.  The sights are platinum lined, extraordinarily precisely made and serial numbered to the gun.  The lock is marked "THE WHITWORTH COMPANY LIMITED" in front of the hammer and has the standard Whitworth trademark behind the hammer.  The Whitworth trademark is also found on the barrel, below the rear sight base.  The tang of the trigger guard is marked F435.  The stock is in exceptional condition with sharp checkering and absolutely minimal dings and scratches.  It is made from an extremely dense walnut wood.  There is a silver presentation plaque on the right side of the butt which has never been inscribed.  The butt plate is deeply checkered.  The gun is in an overall strong very good to excellent condition with no pitting on the metal surfaces and very nice wood.  These match target rifles are the very pinnacle of Whitworth long range rifle production.  They probably represent the single, most accurate, long range percussion ever built.  P.O.R.
