History Buffs Rejoice! This Historic Rifle Replica Can Be Yours! It is a beauty and it looks super when hung on a wall, over the fireplace or in an office as a unique decor accent. Adding to its authenticity, the percussion lock is stamped London Armoury with the royal crown. The Enfield "Short Rifle" was a percussion rifle used extensively by the North and South in the US Civil War. It was generally well regarded for its accuracy, even with its short barrel. It was also used by British Army. If you are involved in re-enactments this may be what you are looking for. There are other uses as well such as a theatrical prop gun or costume accessory. Thanks to Denix of Spain we have this and other great replica rifles, pistols and revolvers.
