Notes:

The original conversions were based on the Pattern 1860 short rifle, though a small number of Pattern 1856 short rifles were also converted (these can be identified by the 3 groove rifling).

As a conversion the hammer was shortened and twisted to allow for proper connection with the firing pin. If the original cleaning rod is sill present this will have a squared jag.

The breach is marked with II**.
