Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Martini Enfield Mk 11 .303

#1 Post by vandle » Fri Dec 01, 2017 6:58 am

I managed to pick up this Martini Enfield for a reasonable price and condition.

The receiver was manufactured in 1883.
The bore is pretty good and plan to shoot lead projectiles.

This example still retains the small upper hand guard

I do love those 303 Martinis.. Such a neat way of feeding that little beastie

The whole family of Martini falling blocks are fun to shoot.
The .310 Cadets up to the 577-450 are historically interesting.

Ian Skennerton's Small Arms Identification Series No. 16
British Empire Cadet & Training Rifles and No. 15
Martini Rifles and Carbines makes good reference material.

I don't think you would be disappointed if you found one
