    British Officer’s Private Purchase Barnett London Pattern 1800 Baker .650 Calibre Flintlock Rifle With Bayonet Bar Patch Box & Steel Ram Rod. Sn 18009 - 18009

    The London based Barnett family of Gunsmiths are recorded at various addresses in London from 1796 to 1908 starting with Thomas Barnett at 134 Minories who later became Thomas Barnett & Sons and later John Edward Barnett at the Minories & 37 Camomile Street, ending as JE Barnett & Sons Ltd at Brewhouse Lane, Leaman Street & Duncan Street (see page 140 of Brown’s book British Gunmakers Vol.1). 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. The Baker Rifle was first produced in 1800 by Ezekiel Baker, a master gunsmith from Whitechapel. The famous 95th Rifles, Light Infantry Regiments adopted these accurate rifles (the hit Napoleonic War, Book & TV series Sharpe's Rifles featured this pattern of rifle). The British Army was still issuing the Infantry Rifle in the 1830s. This is a very good, very rare, original, Baker rifle by Barnett. It has all original Walnut full stock and correct bayonet bar, ‘v’ notch block rear sight, brass blade fore sight, iron ram rod and sling swivels. The rifle measures 45 ¾” overall with a 30” round steel barrel which has a rifled bore. The bore’s rifling is crisp & well defined. The bore has just light staining consistent with age. The barrel has crisp proof marks. The lock is signed by the maker ‘Barnett’. It has a brass butt plate, trigger guard with extended tang, fore end barrel block and brass patch box with hinged lid. The hammer is fitted with flint and the rifle cocks and dry fires perfectly. The price for this very rare sought after Napoleonic Wars era rifle includes UK delivery. NB As an antique flintlock rifle no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 18009
