    Approved P1853 .577 Enfield for N-SSA?

    I see that IMA has P1853 .577 Endfield muskets that where made by Nepal Royal Arsenal and saying possibly under the British war department. My question is this a approved gun to use in the N-SSA?
    Thanks for your help

    These were not built under the supervision of the war department and are nowhere near the quality of a British example either in workmanship or material quality.

    The barrels on the Nepal Cache P-53 copies of British Enfields were not proofed to any exacting standard that the N-SSA is aware of. Therefore, they are not allowed for use in the N-SSA.
