Click on an image to enlarge
This is a rare gun that you can tell saw extensive service! It is an original Confederate used Civil War Enfield pattern military rifle. There are a lot of Southern attributed Enfields out there but this is one of the few that we know for sure were in Southern hands during the Civil War. We know this for a couple of reasons. On the front side of the shoulder stock it has the 3/4ths inch tall "G" still clearly visible. This is where the state of Georgia acquired and stamped the gun. Also on the top of the buttplate it has the serial number "3851" Engraved into the brass. In front of the buttplate, it has the large letter "B". This is also correct for a Barnett marked Confederate Enfield. After this gun's military service, it was taken home for civilian use. They altered it for homefront use instead of military use. The barrel was trimmed down to 30 inches from it original full-length 39 inches and has a dark ancient look. At the breech you can see the correct London style proof marks. It has the the solder mark where the rear sight was at one time. The lockplate has the desirable maker's mark of the Barnett firm of London. People have always collected the Barnett made weapons because they are known to have made some of the weapons that were imported for use by the Confederacy. The lockplate has a vividly clear "BARNETT LONDON" stamp. Behind the hammer it is made without the British crown stamp or the "TOWER" arsenal mark. The action cocks back into both positions nicely. The stock has a wonderful used look to the wood, like you would expect from a Confederate used weapon. When you look at the wood under the hammer you can just imagine how many times it has to be fired to burn out the wood like that! Behind the triggerguard, it has the desirable Confederate importation marking of the "JS" Anchor stamp. This gun has all of the markings you could hope for as it pertains to Confederate importation, The engraved numbers on the buttplate, the large letter B" and the "JS" and Anchor marking. The ramrod channel under the barrel is empty. According to a couple of Enfield experts there were 1700 of these Enfields ordered from Barnett with them being in the range of serial numbers from 2,000 to 3,700. As of now there are only about 20 of them known to survive. That's rare! This is a nice looking almost relic condition Confederate Georgia marked and numbered Enfield pattern rifle made by the famous Barnett Company of London.
