Deactivated MH- Maistry? Empty
PostSubject: Deactivated MH- Maistry?   Deactivated MH- Maistry? EmptyFri Aug 19, 2011 11:59 am

Hi everyone, I'm new to this wonderful forum and having been interested in the Zulu wars for many years ,have never had the time it seems, to get really involved, finally I have managed to get hold of a deactivated MH.

I'm not sure what mark it is, I guess a mkII, what confuses me is that on the righthand side of the weapon are the following markings-
S A 1877 just in front of the fore-end and just before the cocking indicator there is a crown, possibly KC under that 1887 and finally under that "Maistry".

Looks like an India word possibly?

Can anyone help?

Thanks.[img][/img][img][/img]
