    RARE, 1861 British Army In India WD 4th Pattern Brunswick Enfield Tower .704 Calibre Muzzle Loading Percussion Rifle Converted to .750 Musket Calibre With Sling & Dossier Of Information Regarding the Development Of The Baker Rifle. A 1042 - A 1042

    The Brunswick rifle was a large calibre muzzle-loading weapon 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. The bayonet bar was relocated further back due to problems that had been experienced with the Baker rifle. The Brunswick rifle used a block front sight and a two position folding leaf rear sight which could be set for either 200 or 300 yards. This is a rare to find 4th Pattern Brunswick rifle. It is stamped on the lock by the maker ‘Tower’ (Enfield) together with 1861 date and ‘I with WD arrow’ India arsenal mark. It also has the Crown VR mark (Victoria Regina). It has all original woodwork with correct brass butt plate, trigger guard, fore end block, ram rod mounts, patch box with hinged lid, original steel ramrod, bayonet bar & sling swivels fitted with Buff leather sling. It has the correct fore and rear sights. The barrel has British proof / inspection marks and Inia Arsenal ‘I with WD arrow’ mark. The barrel measures 30” in length. The barrel’s 704 calibre bore has been enlarged at some point in its life to .750 Musket Calibre. The bore has heavy staining and residue consistent with age & use. The cocking and firing actions work as they should. The price includes UK delivery and an illustrated dossier of information on the development of the Brunswick rifle compiled by a previous owner titled ‘Brunswick Rifle & British Army In India’. NB This is an antique muzzle loading percussion rifle and no licence is required to own it in the UK if retained as a part of a collection or display. A 1042
