Snider Enfield rifle
Snider Enfield Rifle. The stock, possibly made of walnut is stepped at the upper barrel band and again at lower band. Fore-end encircled by two barrel retaining bands (iron). Brass butt plate and brass fore-end. It was the first breech-loading rifle to be introduced for general issue and took a metallic centre cartridge adapted by Colonel Boxer of the Royal Laboratory at Woolwich. This example is presumably a prototype of the short naval rifle of 1866. The Snider Enfield conversion was used by the Navy in the Abyssinian Campaign of 1868 and the Ashanti Campaign of 1874.
