Remove visible Italian Markings and relocate the Serial number to the bottom of the barrel. Strip blue and polish to Armory Bright. Add correct London or Birmingham Proofs $75.00
We draw file off the Italian markings and serial number from the barrel and re-stamp the serial number out-of-sight. We then strip the bluing and polish the barrel back to an Armory Bright luster. Although some London Enfields did feature blued barrels, the modern chemical bluing on reproduction Enfields is not historically accurate so strip it off and polish the barrel and bands to replicate the many armory bright guns that were manufactured in London. When we're finished, you can't tell the markings or the bluing was ever there. We also strip the non-period color case hardening from the bands and polish them to match the barrel. We polishing the tang screw to match the bands and the barrel. Finally, we re-stamp the breech with historically accurate London proof marks appropriate to the specific builder of the musket. Our stamps are as close to original as possible.
Replace lock plate with correct London/Birmingham Contract Plate. $175.00

The lock plates on reproduction enfields are not historically accurate; the color case is not done right and the stamps are not correct. Our custom hand-engraved plates are exact copies of original London and Birmingham Contract plates. Each one is hand engraved by a master engraver or stamped in-house, ensuring that the size, font, and spacing of the lettering is perfect. Double line borders are also done by hand-just like the originals. Each plate is made based of off original "master plates" kept here at the shop so that we can confirm that our plates our 100% historically accurate.
Stamp stock with correct cartouches and maker's marks. $35.00
Original Enfields that were imported to the U.S. during the Civil War had several stamps in their stocks. These stamps were both import marks and maker's marks. Some stamps even showed where the gun was issued. The cartouches applied to your stock will largely depend on the lock plate you choose, as different contractors had their own specific sets of stamps. However, we do have several optional stamps available, like the Confederate "JS Anchor" and "Sinclair Hamilton view Mark" Each stamp was made from a rubbbing of an original stamp on an original gun.
Replace round eared escutcheons with squared eared escutcheons. $45.00
Enfields used during the Civil War featured brass, square-eared escutcheons. Reproduction Enfields come stock with round eared escutcheons. the round eared escutcheons are only found on guns issued to the British Army. We replace these incorrect escutcheons with the correct square ear type.
Replace front and rear swivels with correct type. $50.00
