Hi everyone

I have seen the following butt stock markings on Martini Henry's for sale, and wanted to ask regarding their period authenticity..

Many thanks

Hi

Best person to ask is Neil Aspinshaw - drop him a PM (you may not be able to do this being a new member, for few days - I can't remember now)

Or go to http://www.martinihenry.com/index.html - it may have some more info.


Cheers

Simon

These are repro markings on repro stocks. There are a few about. The rifles are genuine but patterns with the original butt stocks are nearly exhausted.

Only thing I can say is they look a bit crisp compared to the ones on my MH but maybe my reproducers had more skill..... Shocked
