British Snider .577 obsolete calibre rifles:

The Snider, a bit of a development mule that was adopted by the British army for around 5 years before they figured the Martini Henry was a lot better! The Snider was a simple development of the mid 1800`s Tower musket (the early ones were actually just converted Towers) by fitting a flip open breach into which you sloted a cartridge - problem was there was no facility to help with extraction, think burnt fingers and broken nails... these are all Obsolete Calibre - that is, they have full working actions and barrels, but you can no longer get the ammo so no license is required to own one.

Choose your British Snider from the following selection:

Obsolete calibre so live but no license required.
