Description:
The Martini-Enfield Mk I was effectively a Martini-Henry Mk III rebarrelled to .303, in 1895 Martini-Enfield rifles were converted from the Zulu War era .450/577 Martini-Henry & rechambered for the .303 British cartridge. This Martini-Enfield Mk I is marked on one side “Enfield 1879” and on the other side there is a crown with V. R and ENFIELD 1896 with M.E .303, and 1 marked under another smaller crown. The barrel has E marked on top of crown with VR and IP as well as numerous markings with serial number 4641C & matching 4641 on the receiver. The butt stock has a brass marking disc stamped OMDF with M 28 underneath. Bore is frosted and a bit dark as expected for an over 120 year old rifle and still has open sites and bayonet attachment. Has been plated at some stage for probable display or parade use. An uncommon rifle that appears unfired and in working order with strong trigger action but we cannot warrant its operation so it’s sold as is and would make a great historical collector.
