    Victorian 1872 Dated British WD BSA Co Snider MK III .577 Calibre 2 Band Rifle With Nipple protector & Chain . Sn 15645 - 15645

    This is an original British .577 Snider Patent MK III 2 band rifle by BSA Co. 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 Snider rifle has a 29 ½” round steel barrel with clean bore and crisp rifling. The barrel is marked ‘steel’ and has inspection / proof marks. The metal work has even patina throughout. It has a steel butt plate, fore end block & trigger guard. The butt plate tang is marked ’30 above 104’ together with WD inspection marks. The original wood is undamaged with just light bumps and bruises to be expected. The wood has a crisp WD roundel. The action plate is marked ’BSA Co’ together with ‘1872’ date & crisp Crown VR mark (Victoria Regina). The action has its original brass chain with nipple protector. The breech and barrel have proof/ WD inspection marks together with ‘III’ designation. The breech cover has a steel breech cover with locking catch and inspection marks. The action is strong and works as it should. It has sling swivels, bayonet bar, cleaning rod, fixed foresight and adjustable rear ladder sight. The price includes UK delivery. NB As an antique, obsolete calibre weapon no licence is required to own this weapon in the UK if retained as a part of a collection or display. Sn 15645
