    douglas670,

    Have got one, its the one on this forum, few threads down, its not the best condition, look in:

    (Pics/info for DoubleD)

    (Best Martini)

    Was going to deac it but after info from DoubleD, decided to keep as a live one, as i,ve been off work for a while and and need some cash have been shifting some (surplus to requirements) rifles.

    Bore is not that bad looks like it may of been counterbored at some point, will need to re proof but will check for any recent marks, also the butt plate is corroded the rest is quite good, have a look at pics if interested PM me.

    If it is a .303, it's not a Martini Henry. .303's are Martini Metford or Martin Enfield.

    Henry-Metford-Enfield refers to the type of rifling in the barrel. This rifle is clearly marked ME, Martini Enfield.
