Description

The P1860 zinc oil bottle was a standard issue implement for use with the P1853 Enfield, the Snider-Enfield, and the Martini-Henry rifle. There were two varieties, and our bottle is the seamless version. It was issued to soldiers with the ball bag (LEATH-20) Identical to the original in every respect, it features a zinc body, brass top and cap and a steel applicator in the cap. Perfect for reenactors, collectors, and as a practical instrument to help keep your vintage British Service Rifle lubricated! The original lubrication stored in the bottle was Rangoon Oil; however, we recommend using modern oils (CLP or Ballistol).
