Ad details

The Mark IV Martini-Henry rifle entered production in the year 1886, but remained in service throughout the British Empire until the end of the First World War. It was seen in use by some Afghan tribesmen as late as the Soviet invasion. Early in 2010 and 2011, United States Marines recovered at least three from various Taliban weapons caches in Marjah.In April 2011, another Martini-Henry rifle was found near Orgun in Paktika Province by United States Army's 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault).
It was the most efficient of the Martini Henrys with a longer loading lever and it took the new drawn brass cartridge with a 7 grooved rifled barrel.
This superb example is dated 1887 and carries all of the usual armourers marks. It is in good condition and working order.
