    ~ Military Privately Purchased Flintlock Baker Rifle By R. Fenton ~


    The Baker rifle, officially known as the Pattern 1800 Infantry Rifle, was a flintlock rifle used by the Rifle regiments of the British Army during the Napoleonic Wars.

    It was the first standard-issue, British-made rifle accepted by the British armed forces.

    Some variants were privately purchased, as is the case with our example, but most of them were manufactured by different Tower contractors, including the Enfield factory.

    This is a variant of the third and final model.

    The manufacturer has shortened the barrel on this model from 32 to 30 inches and reduced the calibre to .653, which allowed the rifle to fire a .625 calibre carbine bullet, with a greased patch to grip the now-seven rectangular grooves in the barrel.

    It is also fitted with a metal locking bar on the right to accommodate a 24-inch sword bayonet.

    The rifle has a folding backsight with the lock plate marked with the manufacturer’s name ‘R Fenton’.

    The name of the manufacturer is also stamped on the top of the barrel and on a cartouche fitted also on top of the barrel nearby the firing mechanism.

    The hexagonal barrel bears two Georgian proof marks, one on each side.

    The swan-neck cock, its frizzen and floral inlaid lock plate are of a very good quality.

    The mechanism is fitted with a safety behind the cock.

    The scrolled brass trigger guard and the stock butt patch box are decorated with arms and banners.

    The grip is chequered.

    Between the grip and the firing mechanism a sharpshooter sight has been added at one point in time

    To help ensure a firm grip a raised cheek-piece was carved on the left-hand side of the butt.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The barrel length is 30 inches (76.2 cm) and the overall length of the rifle is 46 inches (117 cm).

    It weighs 4 Kg.

    ~ Condition ~

    The rifle is in excellent condition for its age.

    It half cocks, cocks and dry fires.

    The metalwork has darkened but it remains free of pitting or damage.

    There is a small amount of surface rust inside the bore, between the grooves.

    The woodwork is well preserved with minimum surface cracks and scratching.

    ~ Postage ~

    The rifle can be collected from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard or postage can be arranged.
