HISTORY - The Enfield Short Rifle was a percussion-lock rifle. It was generally well regarded for its accuracy and reliability. Used by both North and South during the Civil War, it was also used by British infantry of the period. Made at the British Government armory at Enfield, near London, the muzzle-loading rifle had a blued finish to help prevent rusting and fired a .577 caliber conical ball.
