Hi chaps
What are your thoughts on a representative Martini as a wallhangar...
- a mki/iii upgrade example from the Nepal cache, so failrly good condition overall, with some pitting to metal, wood darkened from applied grease over 100+ years
Or
- an early mkiii, in very good condition, no pitting to metal work, wood very good with nice clear Enfield roundel

The mkiii is a few hundred pounds more, but far more attractive aesthetically, but of course not of the mk used in the Zulu wars, but near identical in appearance hence my dilemma.
I just want a nice display gun for home.

Your thoughts appreciated..

Before anyone comments, I can only have the one!
Thanks
Lee

I personally have gone with the MKII Nepal one I got via Atlanta Georgia (I wanted the model used in the ZW)- but it is really down to choice.

I suppose the MKIII would be more valuable, in the event of having to sell it for an emergency cash boost.

I keep meaning to clean mine up - a member (Neil) has told me how to do it but I have not got round to it yet.....

Cheers

Sime

I'm sure it will make an excellent 'wall hanging'

It looks quite good on the VWF.

Thank you John,

I'm really pleased with it, just wanted a nice unmessed with example.
I was going to post photos of it on this forum, but thought as its a MKiii (although dated 1879), I potentially would be contravening the essence of this forum - the Zulu Wars, as this model wasn't used in them (at least I don't think so..?)

Looking forward to Neil Aspinshaw's book being published, as I'd like to broaden my knowledge of the MH.
