The Enfield musket was considered the greatest European military gun of that time. It was introduced by the British War Department after several studies to improve the calibers and the dimensions of the previous musket models. However, it kept the same general appearance of the earlier pattern 1851 musket. Hundreds of thousands were sold to both sides in the US Civil War. The overwhelming majority of 1853 Enfields were made by commercial gun makers in Birmingham and London under contract. The Enfield features a ladder rear sight with a slide assembled on a base with steps, steel barrel bands and other brass furniture. 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 fit in front of the trigger guard. The barrel is blued and lock case hardened. The stock is made of walnut.
