Victorian, C1850 British Enfield Tower Short Sea Service Customs/ Revenue Officer’s .600 Calibre Percussion Pistol With Captive Ram Rod, Belt Bar & Original Wood by Swinburn Birmingham. Sn 16570 - 16570
C. P. Swinburn was a gunmaker located at 16-17 Russell Street in Birmingham, England, beginning in the 1840s. This type of pistol dates to the mid-1850s and were used by the British Coast Guard and Custom’s Services along with much of the Royal Navy. Her Majesty’s Coast Guard was established in 1822 and had the primary responsibility saving the sailors and property when a shipwreck occurred. The Coast Guard also patrolled the entire UK coastline to prevent smuggling. By the 1850s, smuggling was on the wane, and so the responsibility of protecting the coastline from smugglers was transferred to the Royal Navy, putting the Coast Guard’s primary duty once again to assisting with wrecks and rescue operations. This model also saw service during the Crimean War (1853-1856). The rise of the revolver made pistols such as this somewhat outdated, and by the late 1850s, it started to fall out of favor due to the increasing popularity of percussion revolvers, although examples continued to be produced into the early 1870s and were used side by side. This is an excellent original Victorian, Short Sea Service Customs / Revenue Officer’s percussion pistol by Enfield Tower with wood furniture by Swinburn . It is 12” overall length with a 6” barrel. The barrel has proof / inspection marks. The barrel’s smooth bore has staining and residue consistent with age and use. The original Walnut stock is a nice deep brown with regulation brass furniture & has just the bumps & bruises to be expected with age and service use. The wood is impressed ‘Swinburn’. It has its original captive steel ram rod. The brass butt plate is fitted with lanyard ring and the stock fitted with belt bar. The action plate is marked ‘Tower’ (Enfield) with Crown VR (Victoria Regina). The action functions perfectly. As an antique percussion pistol no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a display or collection. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 16570
