Here is something you don’t see every day… this a very old Khyber Pass Copy of a percussion British Pattern 1847 Artillery Carbine (with some features of the later Patterns 1853 and 1861). It is smooth bore and in .680 caliber and has the crown over VR (Victoria Regina) on the lock plate and is marked Tower 1848. It is functional and very solidly made and of sturdy construction, but the brass castings and other features are less refined indicating it is not a British made firearm. It has been stamped on the barrel with “FOX STUDIO” and a serial number and the stock was also marked with the old Fox Film logo which was in use prior to 1935 which was when Fox Film merged with 20th Century to become 20th Century Fox. This gun came from a collector in New York, which makes sense considering Fox Studio was in New Jersey Pre-1935 before being moved to California. (I have yet to have the time to watch through enough old Fox westerns to be able to attribute it to a particular film. I also haven’t had a chance to check to see if there are any surviving studio records, but it is on my to do list if I don’t trade it). I also have a neat little Miquelet lock derringer I’ll include and I’ll also throw in the 1950s vintage Navajo rug/saddle blanket which is at least a $1,000 piece in and of itself.
