Enfield Model 1862 British Tower. MFG: Antique, Cal. .577, S/N: none, Hammer percussion rifle, 39'' barrel. The Union imported approximately 500,000 Enfields during the Civil War during the first couple years of the conflict from 1861-1863; a time weapons were badly needed on both sides. George Schuyler & Marcellus Hartley were sent to Europe as purchasing agents by the Union to compete directly with Confederate agents like Caleb Huse who were scouring Europe in search of weaponry to arm their cause. Lock plate is dated ''1862'' & ''Tower'' with a ''Victoria Crown'' at the rear of the plate. This is a commercially mfg Enfields used in the Civil War as indicated by the barrel stamped British proofs & double stamped ''25'' gauge marks that correspond to .58 & .577 caliber respectively. It is literally a tossup as to which side used this weapon as the North purchased about 500,000 & the South, nearly 600,000. The metal surfaces are brown & pitted. The original full length stock is good, with several small crack behind the rear of barrel & numerous small nicks & dings. The bottom of the buttstock comb is mark ''T.WHITEHOUSE''. It has likely been sanded & refinished a long time ago. It carries two of the three original bands & a ramrod. Fitted with a steel buttplate. It has no rear slide & a small carbine style front sight. Bore is fair. No FFL Req. - Value: 200 to 1000
