About an equal number of them was imported by the Union. They were manufactured in England by London Armory, or rather under contract for London Armory. This rifle will add a nice touch to the decor of any room or your office. Great addition to your collection or for use in theatrical presentations or re-enactments or as a film prop.

The Pattern 1861 Enfield Musketoon was an alteration to the Pattern 1853 Enfield Musketoon. The alteration gave the Pattern 1861 a faster twist, which gave it more accuracy than the longer Pattern 1853 Enfield rifle. In England, it was issued to artillery units, who required a weapon for personal defence. It was imported by the Confederacy and issued to artillery and cavalry units.
In 1866 the Snider-Enfield was produced as a conversion of Enfield Pattern 1853 with a hinged breechblock and barrel designed for a .577 cartridge. Later Sniders were newly manufactured on the same design.
