Ya gotta love the Perry brothers work. I especially like the lesser known periods.

Nice. I've always fancied having me some CMR, and I was never particularly enamored with the 1st Corps range. I'm sorely tempted to get some of these when they come out, even though I never do any painting these days.

The CMR long-arm was a smoothbore muzzle-loading military carbine, not a rifle.

If they wanted us to not make that mistake then maybe they shouldn't have gone around calling themselves the Cape Mounted Rifles, then.  Smiley

According to the Caper Warriors Volume 1, the CMR were issued a rifled variant of the carbine from 1854 onwards.

Good point, Plynkes.

So, the issuing  of the rifled version would have post-dated the period covered by the figures. Although the next frontier war didn't commence until 1877, perhaps there were minor skirmishes post-1853 while the uniforms remained the same that you could justify its use in... if you don't mind the onerous conversion work Smiley .

Lovely figures, as for the carbine/rifle/shotgun I don't think that the figures are incorrect but the caption in the bottom right is wrong. I think they were just trying to say that just because it has a double barrel it isn't a shotgun.

Regular Afghan army firing line packs have also been added to the Victoria's Little wars sub-range :

Would it be possible to file the rifling out of the barrels using a needle file or should the Perry twins withdraw the range, beg forgiveness for such an egregious error and start over? Inquring minds must know. Wink

Definitely the latter. Only then can they commit ritual suicide by evisceration with a blunt spoon, preferably in public at Salute.
