This unusual rolling block volley rifle has a 7-round barrel cluster housed in a single iron sleeve which is 1 inch across. The rolling block action has a 7-round removable rimfire breech face/ejector. The sides of the action have repeating banding that is repeated on the upper tang. The barrel sleeve is fitted with a dove tail beaded front sight and a sporting type rear sight, with the left side near the breech stamped with three proofs, including the circle Liege "E/LG" proof. Nicely figured checkered walnut forearm and pistol grip stock with engraved steel grip cap and checkered hard rubber "H. PIEPER/LIEGE" embossed shotgun style buttplate. Absent barrel end cap.
Fine, retains 80% period refinished blue finish on the barrel with scattered light to mild freckling and spotting, and the casehardened surfaces exhibit smooth brown and gray patina. The lightly reoiled wood is fine with recut checkering, a filled in crack behind the upper tang and a large crack visible on the left of the wrist, with some small chips visible around the edges of the lower tang. The buttplate has one chip at the toe. Mechanically excellent.
