If you have wanted an original Confederate imported Civil War Enfield rifle with an early production date and here it is. This is the 2 band short rifle that saw service by soldiers on both sides of the Civil War but we know that this one went to the South because of the markings. This pattern of gun is officially known as the Enfield Pattern 1856 Short Rifle. This is the version that is brass mounted. On the lockplate you can still see the "TOWER" arsenal marking and you can see the production date of "1861". Behind the hammer it has the English crown stamp. The action of the lockplate catches crisply on both of the positios. The barrel is full-length at 33 inches and has the original front and rear sights intact. At the breech of the barrel you can still see the traces of the "24 24" stamping which denotes the barrel being of .58 caliber or 24 gauge. When you look down the barrel you see that it still retains a trace amount of the original rifling from the factory. The stock has a nice look with an attractive grain to the wood and it has been refinished as you can see in the images. The stock of the gun has been restored from the rear barrel band forward. It looks nice on the gun as you can see. What is special about this gun is that it has the engraved "409" numbers on the brass of the buttplate. These numbers were applied so they would know that this gun was in the first 10,000 long guns imported by the Confederacy. These marks let us know 100% that it is Confederate in use. This is a well used but attractive 1861 dated Enfield rifle and is the tougher to find two band configuration with the multiple Confederate markings. It is restored but is a lot of gun for only $2,450.
