Description

NAPOLEONIC WARS ERA, British Enfield Tower Dragoon’s .800 Calibre, Flintlock Carbine With Saddle Bar & Correct Cut Down India Pattern Steel Ram Rod. Sn 16415:10 - 16415:10

This unusual variant carbine is similar in form to Napoleonic period carbines featured in Chapter 3 of British Cavalry Carbines & Pistols Of The Napoleonic Era by Chisnall & Davies. Like the Duke of York’s Hussar carbine of 1800 featured on page 58 of the book our carbine has a cut down India pattern steel ram rod. This is a nice example of a Dragoon carbine which has the appearance of a carbine size Brown Bess musket. It has nice patina to the metal work throughout. It has a heavy military hammer fitted with flint. The lock plate is crisply stamped with Georgian crown ‘GR’ (George Rex) and by the manufacturer ‘Tower’ (Enfield). It has an 18” barrel (33 ½” overall) and is a large .800 bore. The smooth bore has staining and residue consistent with age. The barrel is stamped with black powder proofs, inspection marks and indistinct lettering. It has a post fore sight. The carbine also has brass fore end block, trigger guard with extended tang & butt plate. It has all original, undamaged Walnut furniture. The wood is impressed with what appears to be ‘I-I’ most likely an armourer’s inspector’s mark and its saddle bar has a small ordnance inspection mark. It’s cocking and firing actions work perfectly. The price includes UK delivery. NB As an antique flintlock Carbine no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 16415:10
