The first three photos are really for Michael as I know he's a fan of Hollis rifles.
There is nothing unusual about this Hollis - a Martini actioned sporter for the South African market, looking very much like the illustration on the catalogue page that Joel posted a few weeks ago. However, they did select a good piece of wood for the butt. At the other end the light has caught the front sight - it isn't that bright.
It has typical express sights set into the top rib, with 1 standing leaf, 4 folding leaves and a folding ladder.
It is in good condition, no pitting and with clear engraving. The safety works.
It has a good bore and is chambered for the No2 Musket cartridge, although with a tighter chamber than my Wesley Richards 1878 and 1881.
The second rifle isn't a Hollis (sorry Michael), but was also made for the South African market - a Swinburn sporter. Again, nothing unique, but a good clean example.
The rear sight is less complicated than the one on the Hollis, with only 2 folding leaves instead of 4, but still with a folding ladder.
The engraving isn't as sharp as that on the Hollis, although the full pattern can clearly be seen. The engraving on the other side is more worn, although the Swinburn name can still be read. The cocking lever is a little stiff but works.
This one also has a good bore and is chambered for the .577-450 cartridge.
They will both go on my FAC for next year, so you can expect range reports in a few months.
