This little percussion musket is marked “L&T” on the lock plate, “The Little Enfield” on top of the barrel and a Belgium proof mark peeks out at the stock line on the left side. The L&T cartouche on the lock indicates manufacture by LAMBIN & THEATE between 1886 and 1894. It is 42” overall with a 27.5” long, 40 caliber smooth bore barrel, weighs 3 pounds, seven ounces, carries a ram rod under the barrel, has a pewter or lead stock nose cap and has a large rack number stamped on the butt. Doubtlessly used by one of the many military schools that sprang up around the country that were in vogue from right after the War of Northern Aggression (or War of Southern Independence) until well into the 20th century. It is a fairly uniform dark brown patina while the bore seems to be in very good condition and the hammer holds at quarter and half cock though not quite at full cock and the cone is broken off the nipple. The stock is sound with a repaired chip at the toe and the head of the lower band screw has snapped off. L&T made these guns primarily for export to South America and Africa where there were still strong markets for muzzle loaders - and most of those guns are lost to time. Obviously, this one got lucky and wound being one of perhaps 300 bought by an organization in the U.S. It was given a rack position number 118 which is high enough to indicate it was a substantially sized organization and, in that police, state units and the military had moved on to cartridge arms; it must have been a school. Certainly one of the scarcer percussion collectables to be found in the 21st century. If you have questions please email us by clicking on “Ask seller a question” under the flag above.

Who We Are:
The folks here at TANGO YANKEE have been dealing in good faith, with a flawless reputation for honesty and integrity, for over 50 years in the field of antique and modern firearms and firearms related items. Our experience was gained through retail sales since the early 1960’s, design and manufacture dating back to the early 1970’s, and association with the most prestigious firearms specialty merchants and auction houses in the U.S. from the early ought’s to the present. We are incorporated in the state of NH, hold a Federal Firearms License (FFL), NH Auctioneers License (6041, B. Pagano) & MA Auctioneers License (3170, B. Pagano), are fully insured, bonded to $350,000 and can provide references on request.

Our Descriptions:
While we may list multiples of the same item and duplicate much of the description copy, each description is tailored to the specific item in that listing. We bend every effort to describe items honestly, fully and correctly. Please check our feed back to see what our past customers have to say about our descriptions.

Our Photos:
Our close up, high contrast photographs frequently reveal much more than you can see with the naked eye. Dust, lint, dried grease and minute flaws are magnified greatly making things look worse than they do “in person”. Please see our feedback where you will frequently find “better than pictured” and “better than described”. Also: The photos you see in a listing are of the actual item in that particular listing - we don’t use stock photos.

Firearms:
Check with your local FFL to see if the item is allowed in your area. No firearms have been tested and are strictly sold “as is” for collector purposes. All firearms should be checked by a competent gunsmith. Antique firearms can be shipped directly to the buyer once an Antique Firearm Buyer Certificate is signed and returned (we will send a copy with the invoice) except for NJ & MA where shipments must be made to an FFL. The successful bidder will be the recipient through an FFL local to him. We will not honor purchases for a third party.

Shipping:
We will ship items that don’t require FFL processing TO YOUR ADDRESS OF RECORD WITH GUN BROKER within 3 business days of cleared payment. We will email the buyer a tracking number when the item ships (except for items shipped USPS 1st Class). We will combine items for you to minimize your shipping costs but you must let us know that you have won multiple items or are bidding on items not yet closed. Shipping insurance is optional – insurance charges will be included in your invoice as an option. Generally: long guns will ship FedEx and pistols will go USPS Priority. Those items that require an FFL will be sent to the address shown on the FFL. When appropriate we will ship lighter items USPS 1st class in which case we will note a set shipping amount in the listing. A fee may be charged for special handling requests.
