**MINT BORE**1867 Enfield Tower British Snider .577 Obsolete Centre Fire Calibre Artillery Carbine. Sn 18387 - 18387

This is an original British .577 Snider Patent Artillery 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 Snider carbine has a 22” round steel barrel with a near mint bore, clean and bright with crisp rifling (40 ¾” overall). It has a steel butt plate & trigger guard. The original wood with chequered panel wrist & fore stock has just knocks, bumps and bruises to be expected with age & service use. The action plate is marked ‘Tower’ (Enfield) together with ‘1867’ date & crisp Crown. The breech and barrel have proof / inspection marks. The breech cover has ‘Snider patent marks. The action is strong and works as it should. It has a fixed foresight and 3 leaf graduated rear sight (100-300 yards). The carbine has bayonet slide and sling swivels. 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 18387
