Confederate Pattern 1853 Enfield by Barnett, London (AL5097)

Confederate pattern 1853 Enfield by Barnett, London. Overall length is approximately 55”. The 39” round barrel is .577 caliber. Bore is good with visible rifling. All metal has a smooth brown patina. Stock is very good with sharp edges and the nicks and dings to be expected of a 160-year-old rifle-musket. There are no cracks or chips. Barrel has three British proofs. The lock is marked “Barnett/ London” with no other marks. The left stock flat is marked with the stocker’s name, “Crocker”. Evidence of Confederate use are the crown/ “S”/ “HC”/ arrow (right-pointing) stamp just forward of the butt plate; and, the left flat oval “I.C.” view mark per The English Connection, by Pritchard and Huey. It shows “S”/ ”HC” mark stands for Sinclair, Hamilton & Co., a major English exporter to the Confederate States of America (p.111). Also indicates the oval “I.C.” is a Confederate viewer’s mark (p.106). Action functions correctly. It’s not often that a solid Confederate Enfield musket, in very nice shape, comes along. Don’t miss this one!
