CJ...Whatever it is..I call it damn pretty!
Does that knurled end piece turn?, or just decoration?
Then when you open the latch , you see that nice euchelon (sp?) underneath, sweet stuff....
What do you call it?

It's a Rigby latch. At least that's what I've always known it as.

Lancaster guns and W. Richards of Liverpool both were big fans of it. I'm staring at three of my lancasters as I type this and they certainly have a prettier look than the Deeley plunger next to them in the rack.

Frank the end is just decorative, it just swivels to the right...btw I've always known it as a Henry latch but I've also heard people call it Rigby latch

S. Matthews provisional patent 3573 of 1878. It seems to be an adaptation of the underlever fastener commonly attributed to Jones. Earlier, F. Baker Patent 1735 of 1878 had a very similar design, with the major difference only in the lever shape. I see these mostly on Rigby guns, but also on several others like Horsley and Cashmore. Here is an example from a Cashmore Nitro.

Also often seen--much shorter lever--on Manufrance Robusts.
