Enfield 2 band Pattern 1858 Naval Rifle
Taking into consideration the need to equip with a long gun also other corps or regiments other than the infantry corps, led to the “Short Rifle” models. At the beginning the P1853 was simply shortened, but within few years the guns’ models got adequate to the different military exigencies and it was then introduced the Naval P1858 model. The barrel is kept fit by two steal bands and it is equipped always the straight rear sight with a slider assembled on a base with steps. Except the steal bands, the garnitures are made of brass. The ramrod tip is shaped with the characteristic jag slot. The gun is equipped with two sling swivels, one fit under the front band and the other one fit in front of the trigger guard. The stock is made of walnut.
