This is an Imperial German, 1888 dated1, 11mm (11 x 60R) Mauser Model 1871/84 rifle. The rifle was developed from the single shot model 1871 rifle which was improved and modified into a repeating rifle with a the insertion of a tubular magazine enclosed within the fore end to hold 8 rounds of ammunition that was similar to the Swiss Vettrli rifles of the period. This gun was the first magazine fed gun in the German army. The design of the rifle, introduced into service in 1884 was quickly superseded by the invention of smokeless powder as a propellant which was vastly superior to the older black powders used on the Mauser M1871/84 and similar rifles. The Mauser Gewehr 1888 quickly superseded the M1871/84 in the German army and gun was regulated to secondary use including use in the First World War. This rifle was made at the Imperial Spandau armoury which is stamped on the barrel together with various proof marks and the serial number 1440 which is repeated on the receiver. The side of the receiver is stamped I.G.Mod 71/84 on one side and 1888 (manufacturing date) on the other side. The rifles barrel and actin retains most of its original blued finish. The barrel’s rifling has staining & residue consistent with age & use. The gun has a full length tube magazine, steel butt plate, blade foresight & adjustable rear sight.

Nepalese Made .577 Enfield 2nd Model 3 Band Rifle. Sn - 21393:31
This is a scarce Nepalese made, .577 second model, 3 band Enfield rifle which is a copy of the British 3 band .577 Second Model Enfield rifle where the barrel is held in by three solid barrel bands retained by spring clips inset into the walnut stock. British made 2nd model rifles were made between 1855 and 1858 and the Indian models mirrored this date in manufacture so it is possible that this rifle saw action in the Indian mutiny in 1857. In 1858 the .577 3 band rifle was replaced by the 1st model Indian .700” Musket which was one of these rifles bored out to .700” with a smooth bore, a v notch rear sight and a block foresight. The rifle differs to the British made guns in that there are no markings on the lock plate, the rear sight is marked in Nepalese script and the lower sling swivel is the Pattern 1842 musket one. The top of the barrel is stamped in Nepalese script and the barrel near the breech plug has a circular mark near to the joint. The 3 grooved rifled barrel is clean with some staining from residue. The butt plate, trigger guard and nose cap are made of brass, the trigger guard and tang of the butt plate carry Nepalese script. The walnut stock carries the usual bumps and knocks from service. The cocking and firing actions work crisply.

British Pattern 1859 3 Band Musket (2nd model Indian .656” Musket). Sn - 21393:29
This is a nice example of a British Pattern 1859 musket also referred to as the 2nd model Indian Musket which was approved for service on the 7th May, 1859. This pattern was approved at Enfield after the Indian Mutiny, when the P1853 rifles issued to Indian soldiers were converted into muskets, in order to put them at a disadvantage if they ever fought British troops, again. The effective range with the musket was reduced from 500 yards to 50 yards. The musket differs externally from the Pattern 1853 rifle, in that the rear sight is a simple V with no provision for adjustment and a block triangular foresight. The musket was originally approved as the pattern 1858 musket with a bore of .700” but with the thinness of the barrel. With this, the pattern 1859 was approved with a reduced bore of .656” to correct the defect. The lock plate is stamped with the Queens crown and ENFIELD together with an inspection mark. The stock has a nicely stamped roundel with a crown over RM II with an inverted crowfoot and ENFIELD. The left hand side of the stock opposite the lock plate is stamped with a crown over E5. The top of the barrel carries inspection marks of a crowfoot, a crown over 61 and a crown over a crowfoot. The tang of the butt plate carries an inspection mark of a crown with a crowfoot. The barrel is shiny and smooth with a few staining marks. The muskets barrel retains much of its original blued finish including the barrel bands. The original walnut stock has minor mumps and bruises through service. The musket has brass butt plate, trigger guard and nose cap together with both sling swivels.
