R T Pritchard

Post by Mark Batten 250 »

I recently purchased this rifle at auction in Canada; the link below gives a description of the same rifle when it was sold in 2012 by Holt's:

Somehow, it made it's way to Canada in the last 9 years, and I have become its new custodian.

The rifle is marked 'R T Pritchard' on locks and barrel, but the case label is marked 'R T Pritchett'. The locks show no maker's name inside, but they are very much like the Brazier locks on a similar Alexander Henry rifle.

Does anyone know more about 'R T Pritchard', or 'R T Pritchett', and whether they were one and the same?
