The Brunswick rifle was a large calibre muzzle-loading weapon manufactured for the British Army by Enfield in the early 19th century. The Brunswick rifle was one of several designs submitted to replace the Baker rifle. Unlike the Baker rifle, the Brunswick rifle used a special round ball with raised ribs that fit into two spiraling grooves in the barrel. The rifle was designed to accept a sword type bayonet which mounted by use of a bayonet bar, similar to the design of that used on the Baker rifle. The bayonet bar was relocated further back due to problems that had been experienced with the Baker rifle. The Brunswick rifle used a block front sight and a two position folding leaf rear sight which could be set for either 200 or 300 yards. This is a rare to find 4th Pattern Brunswick rifle.

ALL MATCHING REGIMENT, American Civil War Era U.S. Army 7th Infantry Regiment (The Cottonbalers) French Model 1828 Charleville .700 Calibre Percussion Rifled Musket (Converted From Flintlock), Steel Ram Rod, Muzzle Plug, Sling, Socket Bayonet & Scabbard. - A 1041
In October 1862, the 7th Regiment nicknamed the ‘Cottonbalers’ (from the regiments use of cotton bales as defensive works during the battle of New Orleans 1815) joined the Army of the Potomac at the outset of the Fredericksburg campaign. The 7th U.S. Infantry was assigned 2nd Brigade, 2nd Division (Brig. Gen. George Sykes) of the 5th Corps. When the Army of the Potomac engaged the Army of Northern Virginia in December at Fredericksburg, the 7th U.S. distinguished itself with its defense of the advanced position on the southern side of Fredericksburg, holding a position on the eastern side of Hanover Street. While there, the unit took heavy fire and suffered the heaviest losses of any regiment in their brigade prior to orders to withdraw from the city. In May 1863, the 7th Infantry Regiment fought in the Battle of Chancellorsville, where the 5th Corps deployed in line on the northside of the Orange Turnpike, taking the crest of the hill (land today owned and preserved by the Civil War Trust) and holding it despite great enemy resistance. With General Robert E. Lee’s invasion of the North in June 1863, the 7th was with the Army of the Potomac when it went in pursuit. Arriving at Gettysburg on July 2, the division first formed on the north slope of Little Round Top. With the brigade, the regiment advanced across Plum Run toward the Wheatfield. The 7th received orders to wheel left and advance into the woodline to relieve hard pressed Union defenders. But, as the situation deteriorated, the brigade received orders to withdraw. During that movement, the Cottonbalers came under fire from three directions. Though they managed to reach safety on Little Round Top, the 7th lost slightly over 50 percent of its combat strength. During the Spanish-American War, the 7th Infantry Regiment served in Cuba, fighting at El Caney and San Juan Hill, then being deployed to help put down the Philippine Insurrection at Samar and Luzon. Many French firearms were used by Union and Confederate forces during the American civil war. This is an original U.S. Army French Model 1828 Charleville percussion rifled musket converted from flintlock to the Cottonbalers. It has a standard steel lock and furniture and original walnut stock which has just the knocks, bumps and bruises consistent with age and service use. The metal work has even patina. The lock plate is marked ‘U.S. (Army) 7. The markings are repeated on the butt plate tang. The barrel has proof / inspection marks together with what appears to be faint matching ‘US 7’ (7th Infantry Regiment) mark. It has a fixed fore sight and rear sight. The bore of the rifle’s 40 ½” round steel barrel is clean with well defined rifling. The rifle measures 55 ½” overall length. The rifle has its original steel ram rod which has matching number ‘7’ and sling swivels fitted with buff leather sling. The weapon’s cocking and firing actions work perfectly. The rifle has a removable muzzle plug & comes with its original steel socket bayonet. The 17 ¾” ‘T’ form blade of the bayonet is straight and undamaged. The blade is stamped with matching US Army mark ‘US 7‘. The socket is undamaged and has the correct steel locking ring and is numbered ‘Jp4790’. The bayonet fits the rifle correctly. The bayonet has an original scabbard. The scabbards metal mounts are tarnished but are secure and all leather is intact. The price includes UK delivery.
