So I managed to look up the serial number and confirm that my Enfield actually was issued to the North West Mounted Police around the time of Louis Riel's North West Rebellion in 1885. Which makes it a great piece of Canadiana and worth a pretty good premium over what I paid! I'm really more excited about the history than the value, of course, but still, it turned out to be a great purchase no matter how you slice it.
