Original Item: This is no “battlefield pickup”. The P-1853 .577 cal Percussion Rifle was also known as the legendary “Three Band Enfield”. This extremely popular and rare model was the first rifle to become standard issue in the British Army. The P-1853 changed military tactics with its capabilities; imported extensively for use in the U.S. Civil War. A very rare opportunity to own a significant piece of military history that greatly affected wars on three continents.
These weapons are from our 2003 acquisition of the Nepal Royal Arsenal. Date and origin of manufacture are unknown. We suspect they were manufactured in Nepal under British War Department supervision. Although it is possible that they were unmarked British manufacture which the Nepalese then made their own. These 140+ year-old Rifles are TOTALLY untouched and offered in AS IS condition for you to enjoy!
What does “Untouched Condition” mean? OK, this is exactly what we are offering: Genuine P-1853 Enfield type Rifles that have laid undisturbed for well over 150 years in far from perfect storage conditions in the Old Palace of Lagan Silekhana in Katmandu, Nepal. Our DVD of “TREASURE IS WHERE YOU FIND IT” shows these very weapons as we found them and the story behind them.
