RARE, C1830 British East India Company (EIC) Brunswick Enfield .704” Belted Ball Calibre Muzzle Loading Percussion Rifle Volunteer Regiment Marked ‘V TB 3 25’. Sn 16415:2 - 16415:2

The Brunswick rifle was a large calibre (.704) muzzle-loading percussion rifle manufactured for the British Army by Enfield in the early 19th century. The Brunswick rifle was one of several designs submitted to replace the Baker rifle. Unlike the Baker rifle, the Brunswick rifle used a special round ball with raised ribs that fit into two spiraling grooves in the barrel. The rifle was designed to accept a sword type bayonet which mounted by use of a bayonet bar, similar to the design of that used on the Baker rifle. This is an excellent, rare to find, military specification EIC Brunswick rifle. The action plate is stamped with the EIC rampant Lion mark. It has all original woodwork with correct brass butt plate, trigger guard, ram rod mounts, patch box with hinged lid & fore end cap together with original steel ramrod & bayonet bar. It has a blade fore sight. The shoulder stock has contemporary hand carved Roman numerals 'IIIV'. The barrel measures 31” in length (47” overall). The butt plate tang is Regiment marked ‘V’ (Volunteer) ‘TB 3 25’. The barrel’s rifled bore has staining and residue consistent with age and service use. The cocking and firing actions work perfectly. This is a rare, antique percussion rifle worthy of further research regarding the regiment mark and no licence is required to own it in the UK if retained as a part of a collection or display. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 16415:2
