NO RESERVE!! Here's an English made Martini-Henry single shot sporting rifle that was purchased in South Africa by the previous owner. Chambered for the 577/.450 Martini-Henry cartridge, this rifle has probably accounted for numerous lions, leopards, and crocs. Originally marketed by Woodhead, Plant & Co, London, this rifle was likely manufactured somewhere near the turn of the century. It wears a 28-inch round barrel with an interesting express sight that has a fixed blade and six folding leaves (one leaf has come loose and is included in the butt trap). Overall condition is very good and the rifle works perfectly. The finish is worn and only traces of bluing remain. The metal has mostly gone to silver and there are a few areas of rust etching on the barrel (no severe deep pitting). The checkered stocks are in very good condition and free of cracks or chips. The wood has been refinished and looks very good. There are factory sling swivels and the steel buttplate with trap. The mechanics appear to be in perfect working order and the bore is excellent with deep, sharp rifling. It even comes with a set of Lee Precision reloading dies! Possibly even used during the Boer wars, this is one of those rifles that would have many fascinating stories to tell....if only it could talk! Buyer pays $25.00 shipping. Your C&R License is acceptable for transfer.
