GoPro film of shooting a Martini-Henry rifle with bayonet Empty
PostSubject: GoPro film of shooting a Martini-Henry rifle with bayonet   GoPro film of shooting a Martini-Henry rifle with bayonet EmptyTue Oct 29, 2013 6:31 pm

This film of me shooting a Martini-Henry rifle with pattern 1876 bayonet attached might be of some interest. I used a GoPro camera on my forehead to try to give a shooter's eye perspective. I loaded with 75 gr Goex 2F, carded wool filler, a Wonderlube plug and a paper-patched 405 gr bullet. The powder load comes close to the original 85 gr Curtis load, though the bullet is slightly lighter and closer to the carbine load.

I have a considerable interest in wars of the 1870s and 1880s and in particular the Royal Engineers, and have written about them in my novels The Tiger Warrior (partly set in the 1879 Rumpa Rebellion in southern India) and Pharaoh (the 1884 Nile campaign) - the latter in particular providing an excuse to acquire and learn to shoot a Martini-Henry. My great great grandfather was a Royal Engineers officer throughout this period and knew Chard.

Dave, great video. The best yet for showing in great detail, the lodaing, firing and unloading,of the MH rifle. I thought the bayonet, was attached by a twist only, but you seemed to be turning an independant componant. Hoping your going to make some more video's, great effect with the slow motion effect at the end.

Glad you a member of the fourm. Salute

Totally agree! Good clear vision on the workings of the rifle. Dave what was that you turned, after fixing the bayonet. Is it some sort of locking device?

PostSubject: MH Bayonet fitting   GoPro film of shooting a Martini-Henry rifle with bayonet EmptyTue Oct 29, 2013 11:32 pm

The socket bayonet has a collar fitted on it, when you fix the bayonet to the MH, you turn the collar behind the fore sight to lock it into place.

P.S.

Great video Dave.

Salute
