L&T The Little Enfield Percussion .40 Cadet Rifle

This little percussion musket is marked “L&T” on the lock plate, “The Little Enfield” on top of the barrel and a Belgium proof mark peeks out at the stock line on the left side. It is 42” overall with a 27.5” long, 40 caliber smooth bore barrel, weighs 3 pounds, seven ounces, carries a ram rod under the barrel, has a pewter or lead stock nose cap and has a large rack number stamped on the butt. Doubtlessly used by one of the many military schools that sprang up around the country right after the War of Northern Aggression (or War of Southern Independence). It is a fairly uniform dark brown patina while the bore seems to be in very good condition and the hammer holds at quarter and half cock though not quite at full cock and the cone is broken off the nipple. The stock is sound with a repaired chip at the toe and the head of the lower band screw has snapped off. A really neat piece of history and while many of these kinds of guns were made just after the war, very few have survived making them one of the scarcest percussion collectables to be found in the 21st century. You will probably never see one of these again. If you have questions please email us at tangoyankee_llc@yahoo.com This will be listed on Gun Broker the evening of June 5th.
