I love rook rifles. I used to have a Woodward Martini rook rifle in 360 No.5 that shot 38 long colts into clover leafs at 50 yards- I foolishly let it go when I needed some cash.

Her are pictures of some of them

The side lever tipper is what most people think of with a rook rifle, and what i have most of. This is a Horsley from York, I like the basket weave engraving. It is also on the trigger guard 300 rook

This is Holland and Holland hammerless in 300 sherwood

This is a McCririck and soms Ayr Scottland, 300 rook. I think it is a better looking rifle than the H&H

Small framed snider WC Scott, 38 rook

This is just a bit different a reilly on a tranter patent, 38 rook

One of the martini action ones, Chas Osborne 450 rook

Not really sure if this classifies as a rook rifle. A Westly Richards in 32-40. They actually used this caliber a lot. The photo makes the checkering on the wrist look bad, don't know why

Those are beautiful, as are your Winchesters, I'm impressed with the collection you have. Never saw a small Snider, and didn't even know they existed. Thanks. Smiley

The names on Rook rifles are the retailers who are only occasionally the actual makers.
Fazer, top to bottom;1) Perks,2) Webley,3) ???could be Webley, 4) Belgian, 5) Tranter, 6)Braendlin Armoury, 7) Westley Richards---action possibly Francotte.

Lovely collections/specimens, all! I have a Issac Hollis and Sons Martini action in 380 Rook, but it’s not in as good as a shape as any of the pictured guns here. All the other ones that I have seen seem to command prices that are a bit too much for me, but I am always looking out for them.
