    Enfield 1849 Paget Rifled Barrel .700 Calibre Rifled Bore Cavalry Carbine With Attractive Tiger Stripe Stock. A 1059 - A 1059

    These carbines were designed by General Henry Paget (1768-1854). See page 141 of British Military firearms 1650-1850 By Blackmore. The flintlock version was adopted by the British Army in 1808 and was the carbine of the English Cavalry until C1830. Percussion Paget Carbines with rifled barrels remained in British Cavalry service during the Victorian era. This is an excellent example of the rare Paget percussion carbine. It has even patina to the metal work throughout. It has a heavy military percussion hammer and the action plate is crisply stamped Crown GR (George Rex) together with inspection mark and ‘Tower’ (Enfield). Its 15 ¾” barrel (31 ¾”overall) has a rifled bore which is clean with crisp rifling. The top of the barrel is stamped with proof/inspection marks. It has the correct under barrel captive swivel ramrod. Its sights consist of a blade fore sight and ‘v’ notch plate rear sight. The carbine also has brass fore end block, trigger guard with extended tang & butt plate. It has all original wood stock which is stamped with ‘BO arrow’ Board Of Ordnance mark. The stock has an attractive Tiger stripe hue. It cocks & dry fires as it should. The price includes UK delivery. NB As an antique percussion Carbine no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. A 1059
