This is a good looking gun! It is an original Civil War Enfield pattern .577 caliber rifle. This is the Civil War production made in England like would have been brought through the blockade. It has the clear 1862 date of production on the lockplate to go along with the "TOWER” arsenal stamp and also the British crown stamp. This gun would have originally had a lockplate with an 1863 or 1864 date when it left the factory. It has been replaced with an earlier date somewhere along the line. The action works crisply on all positions. The barrel is full-length and has the British proof marks clearly visible at the breech. The stamps include the "*24*24*” that denotes the bore of the gun as being .58 in caliber. The bore of the gun is very nice with the lands and grooves of rifling still partially visible. It has the original front sight still nicely intact. At the breech it has the original range rear sight intact and complete. All of the metal parts have darker tone. The gun has both of the sling swivels. It has the full-length modern made ramrod the channel underneath the barrel. The stock has a very pretty tone to the wood with the wear from service that makes it display well. You can still see the remnants of the circular stamping from the Birmingham Small Arms Trade on the front of the stock. What is neat about this gun is that just in front of the top buttplate screw it has the Anchor with the "S" marking. This is a mark is what replaced the "JS" anchor stamping that was used on the earlier imported weapons that went to the Confederacy. This stamp shows up on the 1863 and 1864 styles which came in after they stopped engraving the numbers on the buttplates of the guns. On the wood behind the triggerguard it has the Sinclair markings partially visible. It also has the remnants of the "WOODWARD" stock maker's marking. This is a very attractive looking Confederate imported Civil War Enfield pattern rifle that displays well.
