Description: A stunning Snider-Enfield 1871, UK, latch lock. Caliber .577 Boxer, Range 60/600/1200 Capacity 1, Rate of Fire 1/2

Fitted for Edward Boxer’s .577 brass cartridge, the Snider-Enfield was standard UK issue until it was replaced by the Martini-Henry in 1874.

Born in Georgia and residing in Philadelphia, American inventor Jacob Snider developed a breech-loading mechanism in the early 1860s known as the “latch lock” system. Looking to convert the Pattern 1853 Enfield from a muzzle-loader into a breech-loader, the British government adopted Snider’s latch lock system and began producing a conversion model known as the Snider-Enfield Mark I. By the time the Snider-Enfield Mark III was introduced, the rifle was being assembled entirely from new components.

This rare and sought after rifle and the breech-loading mechanism is 150-years old and a fine example of American ingenuity. This model has been crafted by artisans in the early 1900's with ivory inlayed into the original wood stock. Acquired from private estate collection in the Netherlands.

The rifle is 73" high w/ bayonet, 55" long with a 37.5" long barrel. Firing mechanism: Boxer .577
