    1855 Dated (NOT DEACTIVATED) Enfield Tower .650” Carbine Calibre Constabulary Percussion Police Musket With Lovell's Patent Catch For Constabulary Bayonets. Sn 13372 - 13372

    This is a Victorian Police 'Constabulary' percussion musket. It measures 42 ¼” overall with a 26 ½” smoothbore barrel which is .650 carbine calibre. The bore has just light staining consistent with age. The underside of the barrel beneath the wood is marked ‘WG’ & ‘Bond’. It has all original wood and metal work. The wood has just the bumps and bruises to be expected with age and service use. The stock has a rear sling swivel and the fore end has a contemporarily drilled hole no doubt for a sling swivel or anchor which is absent. The plain steel lock is crisply marked with Queens Crown ‘VR’ (Victoria Regina), Tower (Enfield) & dated ‘1855’. The carbine size musket has a heavy military hammer, brass butt plate, trigger guard & fore end block together with original steel ramrod. In 1843, as a result of a select committee meeting investigating the shortcomings of the previous Hanovarian version bayonet Lug's in service with the British Army, the Lovell's Lug was introduced. The Lug with Lovell's 'Catch' was introduced into the British Army in 1884 and applied to Constabulary bayonets up to the mid 1850's. (See page 98 and 99 of British & Commonwealth Bayonets by Skennerton & Richardson). This rifle is fitted with the correct Lovell's bayonet catch. The cocking and firing mechanisms work perfectly. Price includes UK delivery. NB As an antique percussion musket no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 13372
