Hi

Wouldnt it be fantastic to fire off a few rounds ?. wonder if the DIEHARD"S have ever had a volley fire session?. I know the bullets are expensive, so i doubt they would have done so. This could be one for our own Billy Blanco, wonder if he"s had the good fortune to have loosed off a few rounds....

cheers 90th.

Neil Aspinshaw the man to talk to on Martini Henry. I think he knows just about everything one needs to know about this rifle. I do believe he as a collection of Martini Henry’s, which he uses on a firing range.


P.S I think he also makes his own ammunition.

He is a regular on the RDVC.

90th/ Pete.
I have been looking up Neil Aspinshaw. And came across this site. It shows his collection of Martini Henry Rifles. Impressive or what. The one at the bottom has the cover to prevent burns when the rifle gets hot. I wonder if they are all working rifles.
