The Tyler Texas Rifle was manufactured in Tyler Texas, for the Confederacy. This rifle was modeled after the Enfield rifled Musket in .58 caliber. A lot of the parts used to manufacture the Tyler were smuggled in from England. Approximately, 2,223 firearms were manufactured between October 1863 to March of 1865. An interesting fact, 160 of these rifles were issued in October of 1864 to Colonel James Duff; of the 33rd Texas Cavalry Regiment.
