Unintended Consequences: Massive Rodda 4-Bore Rifle

Before sophisticated metallurgy, high velocity rounds, and superior propellants, sheer size was king. When you needed to knock down the most dangerous of game you brought out the big guns, literally.

This Rodda 4-Bore double rifle is one such “big gun” intended for dangerous game safari hunting in India when it was the hot spot destination for such activities.

This particular 4-bore rifle was also once the property of noted author John Ross, who penned the fictional work Unintended Consequences.
