Tasker.

Most entertaining.

Best taken with a great big dollop of wishful thinking . Its a complete bista with a Mk1 Snider "style" action.

The back-lock action is very reminiscent of a P1868 Albini Breadlin, however the trap door is Snider pattern, most closest is an Austrian Werndl. take your pick.
