Pattern 1853 Enfield Rifled Musket.  Starting in 1855, the British army replaced their smoothbore muskets with this miniè type musket. This was the primary rifle used by the British in the Crimean War, the Indian Mutiny, and the New Zealand land wars. A rumor that the cartridges were greased with beef tallow or lard was a primary cause of the Sepoy mutiny. After 1867 most were converted to the Snider breech-loading mechanism.
