BLE-0005, British P-1864 Snider type Breech Loading Rifle (semi relic condition)

This item is listed for historical interest only. It is not for sale.
Item #18977

This is a British P-1864 Snider type Breech Loading Rifle.  These are examples from the Nepalese arsenal.  The Snider system utilized a hinged breech block with an internal firing pin assembly that permitted the use of a self contained cartridge of lead bullet in cardboard, and, after 1867, brass casing. This highly efficient conversion system prolonged the active life of the P-1853 rifles up until 1871 when the Martini System was adopted. Snider rifles saw continued use throughout the Empire but were officially obsoleted by the late 1880s. This example is complete and all original, also has the following features; 39" barrel with the signatures three steel bands, brass trigger guard, cleaning rod, functioning lock with nipple, adjustable ladder-back sight, and brass butt plate. Overall fair and semi relic condition. A very rare opportunity to own a significant piece of military history that greatly affected wars on three continents. Sold as is look at the pictures closely.
