Although this popular and rare model sold out almost immediately, we can still offer the first rifle to become standard issue in the British Army through this "kit". Complete and original, the stocks were damaged beyond conservation, so we are offering the few rifles remaining in original condition but with the bonus of including a brand new stock. As an added value we have shaped the stock appropriately and fashioned new brass butt plates to bring your treasure back to its former glory.

Features a 39" barrel with three bands of steel, brass trigger guard and butt plate. Complete with adjustable ladder-back sight, this rifle changed military tactics with its capabilities. Imported extensively for use in the U. S. Civil War. Overall condition fair to good. A very rare opportunity to own a significant piece of military history that greatly affected wars on three continents.  Note: Although the replacement stocks are pre-shaped to accommodate most of the original parts, the lock cavity has not been drilled because each lock had subtle differences in size and shape. There is a $10.00 additional shipping & handling charge with item, cannot be shipped USPS.

Note: These guns were manufactured before 1898 and are therefore legally considered antiques. It is totally legal to own these without a U.S. Federal Firearms License (FFL) and they can be shipped to most countries around the world.

I am incredibly satisfied. The Enfield is in very good condition, no need to replace the stock. I next ordered a "parts rifle" in order to utilize the excellent replacement stock furnished in this kit.

Bought two of these so far. The rifles I received had amazingly good quality stocks and metal work and after careful light cleaning and trip to gunsmith, it was decided to stay with original stocks. I have fired these with both blank and ball charges and they are amazing.
