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 The rise of the revolver made pistols such as this somewhat outdated, and by the late 1850s, it started to fall out of favor due to the increasing popularity of percussion revolvers, although examples continued to be produced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.
