Sale F90024 Lot 25

A .577 Volunteer Enfield 2 Band Percussion rifle by Hollis & Heath
40in. (101.6cm.) long overall, barrel 24 1/8in. (61.3cm), the breech bearing inspector's marks, metal ram-rod, the stock stamped 'Pimlico' (the South-London government ordnance depot) and dated 1865 as the date of refurbishment and re-issue, with brass butt plate and trigger guard, functioning sights.
* This is probably a Royal Navy musket which is of shorter length than that employed by the British Army, for ease of use on a moving deck.
**The lower limb on mainspring needs replacing, otherwise fully functioning lock, ironwork in untouched condition with aged related pitted patina, woodwork good with split to lower butt.

Estimate £400-500
