1 thought on “P – 1853 Type III British Enfield, 1862 Lock Plate

  1. I have an Enfield 3 band 39″ barrel etc. Same as your picture as far as I can see, BUT my lock plate is marked with “1862” and there is no crown etching. My etching is a shield with an eagle on top. There is a “M” in the middle of the shield.
    I have been told the “M” stands for “Moore” but I am not sure about this.

    There is a number stamp on the rear sight…28 in two places. No other marks.
    I do not have a bore sight, but do not see any rifling.

    Can you tell me anything further? Might be interested in selling so price estimate if you can give unseen ranger $$$.
