    MINT 3 Groove Rifling, Victorian 1864 British Enfield MK II*Snider .577 Calibre Cavalry Carbine Regiment Marked ’35 399’. A 595 - A 595

    This is an original British MK II* .577 Snider Patent Cavalry Carbine by Enfield. 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 carbine has a 19 ¼” round steel barrel with near mint bore, clean with 3 groove rifling. It measures 37 ½” overall length. The metal work has even patina throughout. It has a brass butt plate & trigger guard. The butt plate is Regiment or unit marked ‘35’ and weapon number ‘399’ together with inspection mark (illustrated). The original woodwork is undamaged and has just the bumps and bruises to be expected with age and use. The wood has a diamond ink cartouche which contains the letters ‘DC’ and has an Enfield ink roundel above number ‘1’. The side plate is dated 1864 and is marked Enfield, Crown VR (Victoria Regina), together with inspection marks. The breech and barrel have proof/ inspection marks together with ‘MK II*’ designation and ‘BSA Co’ mark. The action is strong and works as it should. It has an adjustable rear ladder sight and is without fore sight. The price for this Regiment marked carbine includes UK delivery. NB As an obsolete calibre weapon no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as a part of a collection or display. A 595
