About this item
Here is a Snider-Enfield rifle, This particular one has 3 bands and is full length. Dated 1971 this would have been manufactured only 5 years after they entered service.
The name Snider-Enfield comes from the fact that Enfield made the rifle and used a U.S designed Jacob Snider breech block mechanism.
Firing a .577 cartridge the Snider-Enfield packed a heavy punch and much faster rate of fire due to it being a breech loading rifle and not being a slow reloading muzzle loading rifle. It was liked by the troops and was used until it was supersceded by the famous Martini-Henry rifle.
