Title Bullet mould for .577 Enfield or Snider rifle
Nationality British
Period c 1853-70
Sold

This mould would have produced a slug with a hollow cavity in its base and a two-grooved finish (for accepting lube). These would have been in use on the earliest three-band Enfields right up to the Snider conversions of 1866, ie from the Crimean War through the Mutiny and the Abyssinia Campaign.

Though the iron parts of the mould have suffered somewhat, the interior of the mould is nice and clean, and one could certainly still cast decent bullets from it.

This is the first time I have had one of these through my hands in 40 years of dealing. I believe that they are fairly uncommon.

Picked up the dirk this morning and actually waited until I got back home before unwrapping the package. It really exceeded my expectations...whilst the photos were good, to see and feel it in three dimensions was very exciting. A beatutful piece Chris, and worth the wait.
