HISTORY - The Enfield Short Rifle was a percussion-lock rifle. It was generally well regarded for its accuracy and reliability, and 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.
This replica of the 1860 Enfield Short Rifle is authentically detailed with the London Armoury Royal Crown stamped on the percussion lock. This 2-band musketoon has a 24" black barrel, wood stock, metal ramrod and lanyards for a sling (not available). 40" long overall. #22-1046.
