Thanks Terry - fixed.
--If you have any info on 1860, it would be appreciated.
-- Also, 27854 which seemed to have a Paris address. Any clue on that address? Just the name or did it have a street as well? Any hint.

And if you find more Reilly's just sort of lying around....would much appreciate something on them...plus your perhaps posting them here for sale. Thanks.

Edit: He looked and found..at least one..17591.

18860



In case anyone is interested, here is only the 2nd Reilly 4bore on the list (George's gun being the only one up to now auctioned last year (added to the list above). Might have been proofed as a 6 bore? 18 lbs? I think George's weighs about 29 lbs? 42" barrels - Stan - why go for one pigeon when you can take the whole flock?

Please Note: Upon closer examination, the hammers are both very slightly out of time, and stalking safety will not engage.

MASSIVE FOUR BORE E. M. REILLY HAMMER WATERFOWLING SHOTGUN IN HIGH ORIGINAL CONDITION.
SN 18860. Cal. 4 bore. 4″ Chambers. 42″ Dovetailed stub Damascus bbls are engraved “E. M. Reilly & Co Oxford Street London & Rue Scribe. Paris.” on relatively narrow concave top rib. Bottoms of bbls are stamped with London black powder proofs for 6 bore and with SNs. Large nickel-plated Jones underlever action with non-rebounding peninsula back locks have round bodied serpentine hammers and back sliding safeties. Locks have four positions; fired, 8th cock, half cock, and full cock. Safeties engage at 8th cock. Action and locks are completely unadorned except for makers name on the tail of each lock. SN is on trigger guard tang. Lightly streaked and figured European walnut straight grip buttstock measures 14-3/8″ over nickel-plated buttplate, and has classic point pattern checkering with mullered borders at grip, and a vacant silver oval on toe line. Matching splinter forend has shaped steel tip, and attaches to bbls with sliding side bolt through oval escutcheons. It appears this gun was made before chokes were invented. Diameter at muzzles is .952. Drop at heel: 2″, drop at comb: 1-13/16″. Weight: 18 lbs. 12 oz. LOP: 14-3/8″. CONDITION: Excellent, very close to new. Bbls retain nearly all of their Damascus brown with only slight silvering at muzzles, and some overall flecking. All other major metal parts retain nearly all of their orig heavy nickel plating, with only a few scattered knocks and a small bit of peeling at toe of buttplate. Action and trigger guard screws retain most of their orig case hardening color. Minor pins and safeties retain most of their orig fire blue. Stocks have nearly all of their orig hand rubbed oil finish with scattered marks and scratches, checkering very lightly worn and dark. Mechanically excellent, but triggers and locks are somewhat sluggish due to congealed oil. Bores are excellent, with some light scratches. Action is tight. Waterfowlers such as this are seldom found in this condition, because they are usually heavily used in salty environments. A superb condition example like this is a great rarity. 51401-5 MGM170 (20,000-40,000) –

3514 - JC Reilly, but with New Oxford St. + post 1856 label



And I finally found the pictures of Reilly SN 3514 which I speculate may be part of a set of SN's reserved exclusively for JC after their move to Oxford st. muzzle loader mentioned above with the 502 New Oxford Street address - discussed in the post on page 9. (edit: Error. This is an English site gun. Terry Buffum's gun is 3402 but with 316 High Holborn...would love to see the rib on 3402).

Stock does look a little "plainer" than EM stocks.
https://www.guntrader.uk/guns/shotguns-black-powder/reilly/percussion/12-gauge/170610144659005







Label has the 1851 Crystal Palace and 1855 Paris Universelle medals dating it between 1855-59.

1857 - JC Reilly and the "7000" series: "Veni Vidi Vici"


I just noticed an unusual coincidence. Terry has a JC Reilly SN 8025, 13 bore, single barreled, two groove rifle with an engraved "Veni, Vidi, Vici" on it. Internet has a 20 bore, single barrel, two grover with the same inscription. I wonder if they were made for the same owner or was this something JC adopted in his later age (mid 1850's?).

Here is the internet gun 8052 sold Sep 2017 in England - be interesting to post photos of Terry's gun next to it - would like to see the VVV engraving too:
https://www.invaluable.com/auction-lot/r...29-c-e6e45b9a5b

Description: REILLY, LONDON
A 20-BORE PERCUSSION SPORTING-RIFLE, serial no. 8052,
circa 1855, with browned twist iron octagonal 30in. two-groove rifled barrel, dove-tailed blade fore-sight, standing notch rear-sight with two additional folding leaves, the top-flat at breech signed 'REILLY NEW OXFORD STREET LONDON' followed by an engraved tri-fold banner marked 'VENI, VIDI, VICI', squared and engraved breech-block and fully engraved top-tang, fenced nipple, platinum plug, border, scroll and game-scene engraved bar action lock, chequered walnut pistol-grip half-stock with iron furniture including a game-scene engraved patch-box and fitted with a set-trigger, eyelets for sling and mushroom headed mahogany ramrod.

1872 - Reilly and Emperor Napoleon II - Empress Eugenie


Dr. Drew, ran across this 2008 line on DGS on who made the guns for early Brit manufacturers and your comments.
http://www.doublegunshop.com/forums/ubbt...amp;type=thread
The photos have been deleted. By any chance do you retain the photos and information on both the 12 and 20 bore used by Princes Eugenie and imported into the US by Sturteant?

"Thanks to Dr Drew, Once again for posting the 20bore E M Reilly, I have the 12b also Cased with allLoading Goodies. The letter along with the 2 Guns is, European Royalty and the Reilly Invoice shows just how Mr Sturtevant of Newport R.I.U.S.A. brought the Guns to America.I am not the owner, just the Researcher/Cleaner/Photo'Snapper".The Empress Euginie, Mother of Napoleon lll. Used the 20b Quite Often' I hope to get the story into "ONE of the Glossie's...Some Grand Photos. The Guns are the Quality expected from London Best Makers of the period. The stripped-down photos will show this...DirtyDave /cc

"cc/dt is digging deep beneath the bench for his Reilly stash, so I went ahead and made a PictureTrail album

Here's the Pouiatowski Monogram"

"SxS40" picked up the bar-in-wood at the Vegas show and asked me to let him know if I found others. I did, while moving cased guns to put some guns from the show back into the two big safes.

Jones action, 8 bore, #17591, rib marked E. M. Reilly & Co. New Oxford Street, London & Rue Scribe, Paris. Locks marked in ribbon E. M. Reilly & CO.

Fore end is keyed type. A horn tip on the fore end aids in lifting it as it is removed. No engraving other than name on locks, a bit of scroll on top rib at breech and all the screws. Looks like a market hunter's gun, not a gentleman's toy.

Unmarked drawer type case (tray with gun pulls out the end) has been in-expertly rebuilt, gun is untouched, but little finish on metal, numerous dings on wood. Presentable as is, but certainly not a high condition survivor.
