Blue steel dovetail lump barrels with a single bead sight on the smooth rib marked "E.M. REILLY & Co. 295 OXFORD St. LONDON", doll's head rib extension, single extractor, and mixed London and Birmingham proofs on the flats. Heavyweight, casehardened action and locks with sculpted fences and hammers. London and Birmingham proofs on the water table, and knurled under lever. The lock plates and action feature flourishes of light scroll engraving with maker's marks on each lock. Checkered forearm and pistol grip stock with lightly engraved fittings, Anson latch gold initial oval engraved with the bust of a roaring lion, and solid recoil pad.
Good with 85% refinished blue over visible pitting and dings on the barrels, legible rib markings, and patches of spotting and edge wear. The action and locks have an overall mottled gray/brown patina with areas of darker spotting/oxidation, and some light pitting. The wood is also good with small dings overall, moderately worn checkering, and heavily deteriorated pad. Mechanically excellent.
