hi, thanks for all the replies! The serial number is 185-25204 so presumably a slightly later model (185) than those you mention. Good info in order to get an idea of date though.

Ranch rifle (plus Bond waffle)

This (I believe) is a Ruger Mini-14 .223 'ranch rifle', with detachable magazine and folding stock. Any general info on this weapon would be helpful - are they still around and/or widely used in the...

yes, i agree with what you both mention about the practical uses of such a weapon on a ship. Beginning to think that maybe it had been originally used on the walls of the Nile forts the English took...

Old flintlock, mystery feature on stock

Me again.

Thanks to all those who've posted such helpful replies to my previous posts.

aye, thanks biff! So would this have been just any old percussion gun that they've then attached a swivel to? Or, because it seems far too long for a general service/infantry weapon at 1.7 metres,...

hi Dillinger,
thanks for this information - very useful. I suppose it would make sense for different colour flares to change meaning on a regular basis to not to give the enemy too many clues as to...
