  • Description:

    We are pleased to offer one of the finest examples of a Martini-Henry MKI rifle that we have encountered.  Dated 1873, this Martini was built at Enfield and shows all the early features.  Brass breach pin, checkered butt plate and original round knob cleaning rod.  The finish on this rifle rates at 98% plus original blue.  The only loss is on the leading edge of the trigger guard, lever bow and the leading edges of the barrel bands.  All of the markings and proofs are clear and sharp.  The wood shows the majority of its original finish.  The butt shows a clear sharpEnfield roundel with inclosed surplus broad arrows.  The 577/450 bore rates at bright excellent plus.  This MKI comes with its original brass muzzle cover.  All of the original inspector marks remain on the butt.  The sight shows a serial # 6222.  This MKI is one of the finest untouched examples that we have handled in many years.  An exceptional addition to any British military collection.  Antique status, not subject to permit to purchase or own.
