Seller's Description

Guns For Sale - Enfield -- Martini Henry Mk.II Rifle - 1874 - Zulu War

Martini Henry Mk.II Rifle as used in the Zulu War, this one is dated 1874, five years before the war. It was originally a Mk.I that was converted by the British to Mk.II configuration as denoted by the markings. It has all the correct British markings and also has Nepalese markings as well. All of the parts are present and correct including the cleaning rod. There is some pitting to the metal, especially along the wood line on the barrel, but it doesn't detract greatly from the rifle. The action works correctly and could be fired, but I never have. The bore is very good; it reflects a lot of light, has very slight frosting, and the rifling looks as good as new. The wood has typical dents and dings as well as some wood loss that has been repaired. I have tried to show the worst spots in the photos. They are near the top of the buttplate, behind the receiver, and around the pin that holds the forestock on. Overall, the wood looks good, the repairs were reasonably well done. Included is a correct, original, 1876 pattern bayonet. It is really impressive, the blade is 22 inches long! It is in very nice shape, with only a few small areas of pitting and looks great on the gun. IMA and Atlanta Cutlery want well over $800 for a gun with a Zulu War date plus another $50 for the bayonet. I am starting it at $600 with no reserve, I include the bayonet, and let you see photos of the gun you will actually get instead of pick of the draw! 3-day inspection with full refund, minus shipping, if not satisfied. $20 shipping.
