Here is our 1853 Pattern Enfield 3-band percussion musket. It is a smoothbore version of the famous rifle.
The barrel length is 39" in .58 caliber smoothbore. Overall length is 55". The lock, barrel and furniture are all authentically rust blued.
As a smoothbore, this musket is meant to fire round ball or shot only, a Minie' ball or other slug will not work in it because there is no rifling to impart spin on it.
The nipple that come stock on these is a historically correct Parker-Hale type nipple which is taller than you may be accustomed to and tapered. They use musket sized caps. Click here to read about the nipples used on these guns on our FAQ page.
Due to the traditional rust blue finish on these, they are not manufactured every month because weather conditions have to be just right. They may be an extra wait because of this.
