A. Bedford's English patent of 1876 covered an ingenious turn-bolt breech plug. Bedford's design had a push type plunger, a tapered chamber and bolt; and was in many ways the forerunner of some of the cheap Quackenbush guns and of the modern Benjamin air rifles. The rifle's value is not listed in the Blue Book of airguns, but the gun should be of great interest to air gun collectors.
