1854 & 1862 Lorenz Infantry Rifle Musket (698)

The Lorenz rifle fired the new type compression bullet that had a narrow waist in the middle that forced the front and base of the bullet to expand upon firing. This rifle and bullet combination worked as well as the Minie System that most countries were using. The only difference between the 1854 and the 1862 rifles is the shape of the lock plate. The 1862 lock plate looks like a British Enfield. We offer both models of locks. These rifles had two types of rear sights, the first was a standing block type that was issued to the ordinary troops and the second type is a folding leaf type that was set for three different yardages. They had a .54 caliber octagon to round barrel that was 37 1/4" long. The Austrians adopted the standard percussion musket cap in 1854. We are offering the standard bayonet for these rifles. Over 300,000 of these rifles were bought by the North and South and sent to America in the early 1860’s.
