1858 Enfield 2-Band Musket
The need to supply other corps or regiments other than the infantry corps with a long gun, led to this shorter Enfield model. At the beginning the 1853 Enfield was simply shortened, but within a few years the guns’ models got specified for the different military branches and it was then that the Naval 1858 model Enfield emerged. The barrel is fit with two steel bands and it is equipped with a rear sight which includes a slide assembled on a base with steps. The nose cap, triggerguard, and butt plate are made of brass. The ramrod tip is shaped with the characteristic jag slot. The 1858 Enfield is equipped with two sling swivels, one fit under the front band and the other fit in front of the trigger guard. The stock is made of walnut.
