The Baker Rifle was the first rifle to be issued to the British Army. It entered service in 1801, and gradually replaced the muskets that had been used before. It was .625 calibre (15.9mm) and was muzzle-loaded. The barrel was 1,162mm long and it weighed 4.08Kg.

The Baker Rifle stayed in service until 1837, and was used in the Napoleonic Wars, the Indian Wars, and the Texas Revolution.
