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'

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.
