Enfield-Whitworth P1862 Muzzleloader .451 Rifles

RiflesMuzzleloaderUsedPrivate
Very Rare Original Enfield-Whitworth P1862, 6 groove hexagonal rifled barrel serial number ‘D25’, possibly one of the first 1000 trials rifles in .451 calibre? Barrel stamped on top with very feint ‘WHITWORTH PATENT’, the woodwork has been altered at some point for target shooting and has cracks and loses, the stock has a feint ‘Enfield’ round all, also the partial remains of a target front sight. Enfield Short Rifle ‘SR’ marked 1863 dated V.R. lock, this rifle came to me from Namibia where some of these rifles were known to have been sent. The metal furniture, barrel bands, nose cap and butt plate etc are Enfield ‘E over crown’ stamped. A rare and important piece of British firearms history, if anyone is interested I am open to sensible offers. Can post if required....Read full description
