Brunswick Pattern 1840

Naval rifle. Brass butt plate with tongue on top, fitted with a brass covered butt box with a semi-circular end (hinged) secured at the back by a steel spring. Plain brass trigger guard with brass spur behind. Two brass ramrod pipes and a brass cap to the fore-end. A steel ramrod is fitted with a flat cap at the tip. The lock is a percussion backaction. The spur for the hammer is broken just above the hammer head. The barrel is iron, browned, fitted with a blade foresight and a blade rearsight with three leaves graduated 100, 200, 300 and 400 yards. The calibre is 0.796in. This rifle is one of a hundred made on the orders of the Admiralty for use on the fighting tops of ships. The Brunswick was rifled with two deep grooves and took a belted ball. It was not popular being heavy and difficult to load. In 1859 a system of reserve weapons was set up and divided into four classifications 1-IV according to the type, age and condition of the weapon and whether or not it had been officially refurbished. First Class arms such as this example were kept for issue to regular troops.
