    MINT BORE, Victorian British WD 1885 BSA & M Co Snider MK III .577 Calibre Cavalry Carbine Marked ‘NSW PSCC’ To The Australian New South Wales Public School Cadet Corps With Leather Rear Sight Protector Cover. Sn 15830 - 15830

    This is an excellent, original British .577 Snider MK III 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 & M Co (Birmingham Small Arms & Machine Company) cavalry carbine made in 1885 has a 19 ¼” barrel (34 ¼” overall). The bore is near mint, clean with crisp 3 groove rifling. It has a brass butt plate with trap and brass trigger guard. The woodwork is undamaged and the stock has an ink BSA 1885 WD Roundel together with Australian New South Wales marks ‘NSW above ‘PSCC’ (New South Wales Public School Cadet Corps) & weapon number ‘267’ (School cadets have been in existence in Australia for over 100 years. The first unit was established in Australia in 1866). It is crisply marked with the Victoria Crown 'V.R', dated 1885 and has the 'BSA & M Co' manufacturer's stamp together with inspection mark. The top of the breech is stamped 'III' model designation. The hinged breech cover has WD inspection marks and the correct knurled steel breech release catch. The breech and barrel is nicely marked with Victorian proof/inspection marks. The carbine has a fixed foresight and adjustable ladder rear sight with removable leather cover which has eyelets that secure to screws on either side of the fore stock. The action is strong and works as it should. The price for this nicely marked Cavalry carbine 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 15830
