It certainly is an iconic Rifle, does any one know how many were used in the film as there were a number of bolt action Rifles on show as well.

They are without doubt a thing of beauty (standing behind it of course).
I take it the ram rod is to clear stuck cartridge cases, did they have a" pull through" for cleaning purposes.?

And many thanks for printing the photo, I take it they are yours.

Hi Les.

I have my Martini Henry with sling and fixed bayonet, mounted on the wall in my 'Junk Room' (as Mrs Shifter calls it)  Mad 

Along with my MH rifle, there is a lifetime of memories in there, such as lots of old Railway collectables, two, yes TWO Fender strat's (identical to Buddy Holly's), lots of military memorabilia, and lots of cricket memorabilia, loads of historical collectables, many, many, many books etc, and she calls it 'JUNK'  Shocked 

Women! who can understand them  scratch 

Cheers mate.  Salute

lol. that sounds like quite a collection there mate! ' JUNK ',
It sounds like nirvana to me! just imagine your collection
replicated all over the country..and people pay really
good money to visit the most inane places, gorping at
any old tat, as long as it gets them out of the house for
half a day! so imagine if there was a network of tours of
people just like you...all with half a lifetime of interesting
stuff, like you on diverse but eclectic collectibles..Hmmm!
i feel the germ of an idea coming on! £10.00 a pop, just
meet a pre arranged charabang chip in a bit for the peccy,
and do the tour county by county lol. any richard bransons
out there can have that one for free.. No   Very Happy
