Antique Guns & Tools

Bullet moulds

A580 577 bullet moulds
These are two 577 moulds one for a bullet and the other for ball. They still retain some of their original gold plating and these would likely have been in the cased set of a gun destined for India, either for a Maharaja or other noble. The exteriors have been well polished over their life. Gold plated moulds are rarely encountered. SOLD
MD031 Callisher & Terry mould
An antique brass 30 bore bullet mould marked FOR TERRY'S PATENT for use with a Callisher & Terry's patent rifle. A very scarce mould, the first I have had. SOLD

MD028 380 bullet mould
An antique brass 380 caliber bullet mould, quite a short cannelured bullet, probably for a revolver round or possibly rook rifle. Good overall condition. SOLD

MD027 300 bullet mould
A brass 300 caliber bullet mould, I would think for a rook rifle. SOLD

MD030 120 bore mould
A brass 120 bore mould for two bullets, suitable for a 19th Century percussion revolver. Good overall condition SOLD

MD029 100 bore mould
A brass 100 bore bullet and ball mould for a 19th Century percussion revolver. SOLD

MD026 450 bullet mould
From the markings on this bullet mould this was mostly likely supplied with a Westley Richards rifle. Markings are 450 for diameter and 480 for the weight of the bullet in grains. Casts non cannelured bullet intended for paper patching. I would think this was originally for a WR rifle such as an Improved Martini chambered for 450 No.2 musket. SOLD

MD025 Brass rifle bullet mould
No maker or calibre markings on this well made mould but it casts a 0.69" max diameter bullet, so approximately 14 bore. The bullet weighs 548 grains with a little of the sprue remaining. Comes with 6 cast bullets. SOLD

MD024 9 bore bore ball mould
An original brass bullet mould marked No.9. Casts a ball approx 0.800" diameter. Possibly for a muzzleloader or 10 bore breechloader using thin wall brass cases. A good quality British mould. SOLD

MD021 25 bore William Davis mould
An original brass bullet mould marked WD for William Davis. Casts a hollow base bullet for muzzle loading rifle. SOLD

MD020 12 bore Greenfield mould
An original bronze bullet mould marked J.G for John Greenfield. A large heavy mould at 11.25" long. Bullet form is not quite a paradox but maybe described as a "short conical", I think for a breechloader such as a double rifle. Side pour, has one free floating hollow base plug plus a hole when closed for hollow pointing the bullet, no HP tool included but easy enough to make. An unusual mould in good condition. SOLD

A bronze bullet with wooden handles, casts a heavy 0.71" diameter HP bullet, no HP tool SOLD
