Hi Charlie,

Given that the gun is built with very robust barrel dimensions, I'm going to load a brass shell to whatever max FFg black powder it will hold and still handle the requisite fibre and card wads topped with a spherical ball on top. 2.4" shell length. I'll probably play with the volume a bit for best pattern but that'll be the plan. If it will kill deer at 35 yards and I can still use it for upland, that will be ideal.

GaryD007,

Was wondering if you had any luck finding that picture of the Maharaj Rana's 4-Bore?

Thank You,

Charlie

Haven't found it yet. I'll keep looking. I think I had one picture of the gun in its case and one with Roland Hueber holding it. Roland is the guy who sent me the pictures. He is probably THE big bore English double rifle expert.

Hi all,

Found these pictures of this W&C Scott 4-Bore on nitroexpress.com and thought I would share them here.

here is the link to the thread as I wasn't able to upload them off of my computer:

Not a Greener, but I believe they said it is ball gun, and it sure is a neat gun. Thought some of you guys here would enjoy it if you haven't seen it already. Was also wondering if anyone knew anything about it? It was up for sale back in 2008 I believe and it sounds like it didn't sell at the time.

Been many years since I originally created this thread and many years since I have posted on here as well. In this thread PM originally posted photos of his Greener 4-bore ball gun. I had them on my computer, but lost everything, including the photos he posted. I have been in correspondence with him, but he also is having a hard time finding them on his computers after all these years and has since sold the gun. Was wondering if any of you gents might have possibly saved them back in the day and would be able to post them here again? It was a 4-Bore Greener hammer gun with back action peninsula locks and a top lever. If anyone has the pics originally posted in the thread he and I would appreciate it. Also, if anyone wants to add any pics of other greener 4, 6, or 8 bore ball guns it would also be great! Thanks again.

Regards,
Charlie
