**SOLD**SOLD**22/8* RARE, British River Police (R.P Marked)1847 Enfield Tower .650” Carbine Calibre Constabulary Percussion Musket With Lovell's Patent Catch For Constabulary Bayonets & River Police Socket Bayonet Marked ‘R.P’ & Scabbard. Sn 15570 - 15570
The earliest British River Police Force was the Thames River Police, formed by Magistrate Patrick Colquhoun and Master Mariner John Harriott in 1798 to tackle theft and looting from ships at anchor. Shortly after other Police Forces with Sea Borders or large bodies of water within their Force boundaries formed their own River Police Units. This is a very good Victorian Police Constabulary percussion musket marked ‘R.P’ (River Police). It measures 42 ¼” overall with a 26 ½” smooth bore barrel which is .650 carbine calibre. The bore has just light staining consistent with age and use but no pitting or rust. The barrel has proof / inspection marks. It has all original wood and metal work. The wood has just the bumps and bruises to be expected with age and service use. The stock is impressed with number ‘38’ and other small indistinct lettering. The plain steel action plate is crisply marked with Queens Crown ‘VR’ (Victoria Regina), Tower (Enfield) & dated ‘1847’. The carbine size musket has a heavy military hammer, brass butt plate, trigger guard & fore end block together with original steel ramrod. The butt plate tang is inscribed ‘R.P’ to the River Police above weapon number ‘136’. In 1843, as a result of a select committee meeting investigating the shortcomings of the previous Hanovarian version bayonet Lug's in service with the British Army, the Lovell's Lug was introduced. The Lug with Lovell's 'Catch' was introduced into the British Army in 1884 and applied to Constabulary bayonets up to the mid 1850's (see page 98 and 99 of British & Commonwealth Bayonets by Skennerton & Richardson). This rifle is fitted with the correct Lovell's bayonet catch. The cocking and firing mechanisms work perfectly. The musket is accompanied by its original River Police marked constabulary socket bayonet which fits the carbine correctly. The 13” long triangular form blade has just staining consistent with age and has a small ordnance inspection mark. It measures 17” overall length. The socket is engraved ‘R.P’ to the River Police above weapon number ‘146’. The blade has the correct sprung scabbard retaining clip which served to prevent an attacker from taking the bayonet from a Police Officer when involved in a scuffle or public order situation. The bayonet has its original brass mounted leather scabbard. All leather & stitching of the scabbard are intact. The throat mount has the correct recess for the bayonet’s retaining catch and the bayonet securely locks into the scabbard. It is rare to find these bayonets with their scabbards. The price for this rare River Police musket with River Police bayonet & scabbard includes UK delivery. NB As an antique percussion musket no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 15570
