Victorian British Hollis & Sons Gun Makers To Her Majesty’s War Department Snider .577 Calibre Cavalry Carbine . Sn 15566 - 15566

About 1915, Hollis merged to form the company of Hollis, Bentley and Playfair. They remained in business until 1935. The Snider action was introduced to British service in 1866 and muzzle loading Enfield Carbines were converted to allow the use of the .577 calibre brass cartridge. They remained in use until the Martini Henry was introduced. This is an original British .577 Snider Patent Carbine by Hollis & Sons.
