Rare, British WD Marked .702” Pattern 1851 Minie Rifle 4 Groove Rifleing Steel Bullet Mould. Sn - 19561
This is a rare British Army WD marked bullet mould for the .702” Pattern Minie rifle. The Minié rifle was an important infantry weapon in the mid-19th century (see page 65 and page 64 item 60 of British Military Longarms By Bailey). The Minié rifle was adopted in 1849 following the invention of the Minié ball in 1847 by the French Army captains Claude-Étienne Minié of the Chasseurs d'Orléans and Henri-Gustave Delvigne. The bullet was designed to allow rapid muzzle loading of rifles and was an innovation that brought about the widespread use of the rifle as the main battlefield weapon for individual soldiers. In 1851 the British Enfield factory embarked upon production of the .702” Calibre Pattern 1851 Minié rifle using the conical Minie bullet, which replaced the Pattern 1842 smoothbore musket as the primary weapon issued to regular troops. The Pattern 1851 was referred to as a rifled musket and was longer than previous production rifles, conforming to the length of prior muskets which allowed for consistency in standards for firing in ranks and bayonet combat. Relatively few of these were produced since a new design was adopted within two years. The Pattern 1851 Minié rifle was in use for only had a short service life with the British Army from 1851 to 1855. This is an original British WD stamped .702 inch Minie rifle bullet mould. The mould halves and handles are each made out of a one piece steel held together with a dome bolt and nut. The moulds are aligned bu a steel pin in the bottom of the mould. The sprue cutter screwed onto the top of the mould so it can pivot an cut the sprue off. The sprue cutter is stamped on the top WD & 12. The bullet mould is approximately 11 inches long and casts 920 grain bullets. We also have a .702” Pattern 1851 Minie Rifle 4 Groove Rifle stock number 19135:21 available on the site.

**RARE**Victorian Era Wilkinson Pall Mall (London) Brass & Iron Black Powder Gamekeeper's Alarm Mine Mounted For Display On Wood Plinth. Sn 18916 - 18916
This Victorian era Gamekeeper's alarm mine was used to warn Gamekeepers of the presence of Poachers on Estates or outbuildings. Several variants were available in the period. This is a rare mine with an unusual action. The mine measures 10 ½”x 3 ½”x 3”. It has a heavy external brass hammer marked on both sides by the famous English manufacturer ‘Wilkinson Pall Mall’. To arm the mine, the hammer is pulled back and a hinged plate locks the hammer back. The hammer is locked in place by an iron safety pin secured to the plate by an iron link chain. The pin passes through a hole in the plate and iron base of the device when the plate is positioned so a protrusion in one end of the plate prevents the hammer from moving forward. This allows the arm to be safely loaded for firing. We cannot find any contemporary book or internet reference regarding the operation of this type of mine but believe it would have been armed with a small black powder charge connected to a short piece of Bickford detonator fuse cord which would have a percussion cap on the tip (the charge may have consisted of a blank shotgun cartridge, percussion cap removed and attached to Bickford cord inserted into the base of the cartidge). The charge or adapted shotgun cartridge would sit on the hollow section on the front of the iron base. The fuse cord would pass over the ‘v’ notch plates & the percussion cap seated in the ‘pan’. The bar has 2 holes to allow trip wires to be tied to it. The wire would then be passed across a path or place where trespassers or poachers would likely be found entering or wandering on Property or Estates. When positioned the safety pin would be removed. When activated the trip wire would release the plate causing the hammer to fall and fire the percussion cap which in turn detonated the charge via the fuse cord. When fired the blast would warn gamekeeper's of the presence of poachers. The iron base has 4 screw holes for securing to a post or tree. The hammer action on our example is strong and the safety pin works as it should. At some point in its life the gun has been screw mounted to a varnished wood plinth with 4 brass ball feet. The plinth measures 12”x4”x1”. This piece would make a superb desk ornament conversation piece and is worthy of further research. The price includes UK delivery. NB As an antique black powder alarm mine no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 18916
