Holland & Holland double-barrelled shotgun "coach gun" in 12 gauge.

The rifle is in neat and used condition. It cocks and closes neatly and internally the barrels are quite smooth with only a light pitting. The length of both chambers is 70 mm (2 3/4 inches). The rifle was made by the well-known rifle maker Holland & Holland, 98 New Bond Street, London in 1878 (source of the year of construction: "Holland & Holland, the Royal Gunmaker" by Donald Dallas). The butt was repaired at a later date and it was once made into a "coach gun". The rifle is equipped with British black powder test bench stamps from London's test bench.
