This is an original example of the British 1853 Pattern rifled musket manufactured under contract to British War Department by Robbins and Lawrence, Windsor, Vermont, USA in 1856. During the Crimean War (1854-1856) there was a shortfall of Enfield rifle muskets. Insufficient numbers were being produced in the United Kingdom and, despite a contract for their manufacture being placed in Belgium, further assistance from both the United States and France was sought. An American contact was swiftly set up in February 1855 for 25,000 US rifle muskets, altered to the Enfield bore, to be made by Robbins and Lawrence of Windsor, Vermont. The American produced Enfields were stamped 'WINDSOR' on the lock. Although the contract was for 25,000 weapons, due to financial difficulties only 16,000 were produced in America for the British Army and marked ‘Windsor’. This is a very rare, original example of the Crimean War American contract 1853 Pattern 3-band Percussion Rifled Musket. The action plate is correctly stamped ‘Windsor’ and has partially visible Queens crown (Victoria) together with ‘1856’ date.The action is fitted with nipple protector & chain.
