Original Bengal Irregular Cavalry British EIC Saddle Ring Carbine by Garden of London
Original Item: Only One Available. Raised in 1847 the X11 Bengal Irregular Cavalry was one of Regiments that rebelled against British Rule in the 1857/59 Indian Mutiny (Sepoy Rebellion) and many troopers fled to Nepal to avoid execution by the vengeful British Government troops that subsequently took over India from the Honorable East India Company in 1859 thereby bringing India directly under British rule.
This very interesting .65 smooth bore with 21" barrel is fitted with the original trapped swivel ramrod for use while on horseback.
The percussion lock is marked with the regimental details X11th BENGAL IRREGULAR CAVALRY and barrel inscribed GARDEN, PICCADILLY, LONDON. Proof marks are not visible but we expect they lie underneath the wood line.
Full brass mounts, the walnut stock still retains inspectors initials stamp directly behind the trigger guard. Features a complete 6" saddle ring to left side containing two retaining rings for a cavalryman’s body sling.
