    Martini Henry pistol? Khyber pass special.

    While scrolling through Gunbroker looking for interesting things I chanced upon this ad for a Martini Henry converted to a handgun. The seller believes it's still chambered for .303 Britishicon and is a "Khyber Pass" conversion. If you're interested, here's the link to the auction:

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping. Manufacturer of various vintage rifle scopes for the 1903 such as our M73G4 (reproduction of the Weaver 330C) and Malcolm 8X Gen II (Unertl reproduction). Several of our scopes are used in the CMP Vintage Sniper competition on top of 1903 rifles. Brian Dick ...

    Neat horrible gun. It would be no worse to shoot than a Contender in 7.62. Well, except it might detonate in hand...still I find these fascinating in their horrible appearance and outlandish patent infringements. I still think a collection isn't complete without these horrors...I don't think they're worth much monetarily.
    Regards, Jim

    I'd shoot it! I'd probably make a few special rounds for it that wouldn't be nearly as effective as what I'd normally shoot out of the Enfields, but it would be a hoot.
