THE SNIDER

WITH NOTES ON THE ENFIELD RIFLE-MUSKET
AND THE BRITISH ARMY'S SEARCH FOR A
BREECHLOADING CONVERSION



This is intended to serve almost as a prequel to Neil Aspinshaw's magnificent study of the Martini rifle, For Queen and Empire (click here for details).

Inspired by the thousands of Snider-type rifles rescued from Nepal in 2002, The Snider attempts not only to catalogue them but also to provide historical context.

The 96-page large format book, with more than a hundred images, will have a colourful printed-paper 'wipe clean' case. Publication should have taken place by now, but the effects of Covid and soaring transportation costs have persuaded International Military Antiques to postpone work.
