Item Description

Original Item: ALL SALES FINAL; no returns, refunds or exchanges. 100% Genuine Percussion Rifle Muskets of the P-1853 Pattern as used by British Forces and both Federal and Confederate Forces during the U.S. Civil War. Imagine it's the day after Gettysburg, the ground is littered with discarded weapons, some serviceable but the great majority blown to pieces. Then imagine returning years later to find the remains still lying where they fell, now you are getting the picture. We do not charge extra for the rust, decay or the romance these antique weapons deliver.

We have had many requests to sell these incomplete, broken, battlefield pickup rifles so that they can be stripped down, used for parts, rebuilt, etc... Well, we listened, and have just a few of these available.

Manufactured before 1898 and therefore no Firearms License or Permit of any kind are required to purchase this incredible piece of history.

These weapons are from our 2003 acquisition of the Nepal Royal Arsenal. Date and origin of manufacture are unknown. We suspect they were manufactured in Nepal under British War Department supervision. Although it is possible that they were unmarked British manufacture which the Nepalese then made their own. These P-1853 .577 Cal Percussion "Parts" Rifles are also known as the Three Band Enfield, a type of rifle which was imported extensively for use in the U.S. Civil War.

Each Rifle is offered totally AS IS condition, completely un-cleaned, incomplete and un-refurbished. The only service performed has been to ensure none are still loaded! Totally covered and caked with dried on grease, dirt and rust, these can be displayed as found or be the subject of winter nights of TLC to restore them to their former glory. No guarantees as to what use or damage may be found after more than 150 years of neglect and storage. These are the typical detailed photographs but no two will be alike. This is a very rare opportunity to own a significant piece of military history that greatly affected wars on three continents at a very special discounted price.
