    1862 British WD Enfield 2 Band Snider MK II ** .577 Obsolete Calibre Sergeant’s Short Rifle. Sn 17051 - 17051

    When the breech loading Snider mechanism was introduced in 1866, many Enfield percussion long arms were converted to the new system. Enfield 2-band short rifles were issued to British Army Sergeants. This is an excellent example of the Enfield Tower Snider short rifle. The action plate is very faintly marked with Queens Crown VR (Victoria Regina) and by the manufacturer 'Enfield’ together with ‘1862' date. It has all original wood work, steel butt plate, fore end block & trigger guard with extended tang. The rifle also has its original ramrod, ladder rear sight, block fore sight and sling swivels. The 30 ½” long barrel has just light staining consistent with age & crisp rifling. The barrel has proof & WD inspection marks. The hinged breech plate with knurled catch has WD inspection marks and ‘II**’ designation. The cocking & firing action work as they should. This is an antique obsolete calibre rifle 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 17051
