    Good Morning Everyone.....

    I thought that I would add a few pictures of my latest find......

    A Canadian Cadet Enfield/Snider Cavalry Carbine.....

    Not many markings and I have read the threads here and I am sorry but I cannot find any unit markings other than the usual proof markings.....

    The plate is marked Enfield 1863..... Where all the others in the other threads are in the 1870's so could this be a very early one.....

    I normally do not purchase weapons but this one just struck my fancy the man I bought this from at a reasonable price had two, a second one was marked "Halifax Garrison Artillery" but it was a lot more expensive.....

    Thats a beauty Mike. I picked up an Early German Carbine Model 71/84 Gewehr made in 1887 at a garage sale a couple of weeks ago. You never know what may turn up. Cheers Brian
