Victorian Era British WD & Liege Belgium Marked Snider .577 Obsolete Calibre Cavalry Carbine. Sn 16937 - 16937

This is a very good original British WD & Liege marked .577 Snider Cavalry Carbine. The Snider action was introduced to British service in 1866 and muzzle loading Enfield Carbines were converted to allow the use of the .577 calibre brass cartridge. They remained in use until the Martini Henry was introduced. This BSA & carbine has a 18 ¾” barrel (36 ½” overall). The bore is clean with crisp rifling. It has a brass butt plate and brass trigger guard. The woodwork has just the bumps & bruises to be expected with age & service use. The action plate has no visible date or manufacturer marks. The top of the breech is has a WD broad arrow mark and the barrel has post 1893 Liege ‘ELG’ mark together with other inspection marks (illustrated). The hinged breech has the correct knurled steel breech release catch. The carbine has a block and blade foresight and swivelling 3 leaf rear sight. The action is strong and works as it should. The price includes UK delivery. NB As an antique obsolete calibre weapon no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as a part of a collection or display. Sn 16937
