Victorian 1863 (or 1868) British WD Enfield Snider MK II ** .577 Calibre Artillery Carbine Regiment Marked '15 BRA 4B 62’. Sn 18446 - 18446

This is an original British .577 Snider Patent MK II ** Artillery carbine. The Snider action was introduced to British service in 1866 and muzzle loading Enfield Carbines were converted to allow the use of the .577 calibre brass cartridge. They remained in use until the Martini Henry was introduced. This Snider carbine has a 21 ½” round steel barrel. Its bore has staining consistent with age and crisp rifling (40” overall). The barrel has WD inspection / proof marks. The metal work has even patina throughout. It has a brass butt plate, brass fore end block & brass trigger guard. The butt plate tang is Regiment marked ‘15 BRA 4B 62’ (unknown). The original wood is undamaged with just light bumps and bruises to be expected. The wood has a crisp Enfield roundel and ‘4 1868’ date (April 1868). The action plate is marked ’Enfield’ together with ‘1863’ or ‘1868’ date (the 3 could be a poorly struck 8), inspection mark & crisp Crown VR mark (Victoria Regina). The breech has proof/ WD inspection marks together with ‘II**’ designation. The breech cover is steel correctly without locking catch and has inspection marks. The action is strong and works as it should. It has a fixed foresight, adjustable rear ladder sight, bayonet block, cleaning rod and front sling swivel (the underside of the shoulder stock is holed for rear sling swivel). The price includes UK delivery. NB As an antique, obsolete calibre weapon no licence is required to own this weapon in the UK if retained as a part of a collection or display. Sn 18446
