The Baker rifle (officially known as the Pattern 1800 Infantry Rifle) was a flintlock rifle used by the Rifle Regiments of the British Army during the Napoleonic Wars. It was the first standard-issue, British-made rifle accepted by the British armed forces. The Baker Rifle was first produced in 1800 by Ezekiel Baker, a master gunsmith from Whitechapel. The famous 95th Rifles, Light Infantry Regiments adopted these accurate rifles (the hit Napoleonic War, Book & TV series Sharpe's Rifles featured this pattern of rifle). The British Army was still issuing the Infantry Rifle in the 1830s. This is a superb, very rare, original, Baker rifle. It has all original wood work and metal work all in excellent condition with correct bayonet bar, flip up 2 leaf rear sight, brass blade fore sight, original correct 30” long steel ram rod with small ‘BH’ inspection mark and sling swivels. The rifle measures 45 ¾” overall with a 30” round steel barrel which has a near mint, clean rifled bore with crisp well defined rifling. The barrel has crisp proof marks. The lock is stamped with Georgian Kings Crown and Royal Cypher ‘GR’ (George Rex) together with manufacturer’s name ‘W. Ketland’ (William Ketland Gunmaker Steelhouse Lane & Whitall Street Birmingham 1802-1807, see Brown’s book British Gunmakers Vol. 2). The hammer is fitted with flint. It has a brass butt plate, trigger guard with extended tang and fore end barrel block. The stock has a figured cheek piece and has a void oval brass disc inlaid on top of the wrist.

The rifle is accompanied by its original very rare, Baker rifle sword bayonet with broad 22 ½” long steel blade and grooved brass handle with knuckle guard. The ricasso under the langet is marked with what appears to be a partial letter ‘O’, most likely Osborne (unable to clearly photograph but visible in the Osborn signature image inset in image 2). The back of the blade is crisply signed by the manufacturer ‘Osborn’ (the Birmingham cutler Henry Osborn was in business from around 1785 and was to go on to be one of the most prominent cutlers of his time with a reputation for innovation and new ideas. Osborn produced some of the first prototypes of the iconic 1796 Pattern Light Cavalry Sabre). The handle incorporates the correct bayonet release button. The handle is stamped ‘III’ which is most likely a weapon number. The bayonet comes with its original black leather scabbard with brass locket and chape. These bayonets are rarely found with their scabbards. All leather and stitching of the scabbard are intact. Also accompanying this rifle is its original large polished horn powder flask. The curved horn flask is 11” in length and 2 ½” wide at the base. The horn is in superb condition and has a brass base cap and sprung screw off nozzle. Its brass throat mount is fitted with sling swivel as is its brass base cap. The flask is fitted with a later cord sling. There are no visible date or manufacturer marks on the horn powder flask.
