Hello Pavvo

Your book sounds interesting. I am probably too late but I have an original 2 band .577 Snider with a Poilvache Action. I believe it to be a Converted Enfield Sergeant's rifle (Brevete) which has been converted in Liege to a breach loader. However it does not have British military markings.It does, incidentally, shoot very well but the reloading is a definite art.

If pictures of this rifle and mechanism/lock are of interest you would be most welcome to them.
