    ~ 1875 L.S.A. Co Made Martini-Henry MkI Rifle Upgraded To MkII Standards ~

    This is a Martini Henry Mark II long rifle, by London Small Arms Co, cal .450/577.

    The bore is rifled.

    The rifle has all the regulation stamps and marks. All its main components bear one or more proof marks.

    The right side of the chamber is marked with Queens Crown above V.R. and 'L.S.A.Co. 1875’, Crown above broad arrow and 'II'. Towards the barrel is stamped ‘7787’.

    The wooden stock is stamped with a ‘London 1876’ arsenal conversion mark from MkI to Mk II.

    The metalwork and the woodwork are heavily polished.

    The ramrod is original.

    ~ Dimension ~

    The barrel length is 32.5 inches (82.5 cm) and the overall length of the rifle is 49.21 inches (125 cm).

    It weighs 3.9 Kg.

    ~ Condition ~

    The rifle is excellent used condition.

    The rifle cocks and releases with ease.

    The bore is clean inside with no traces of rust or any visible damage.

    The left chamber plate has developed minor pitting due to its age.

    The woodwork is free of cracks with some amount of chipping.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £20 or the rifle can be collected from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.

    ~ The Conversion of the Martini-Henry ~

    In January 1876 a conference at the War office met to discuss the potential upgrades to the MkI Martini Henry, even if, in the field, the procedure had been already implemented.

    The first upgrades of the MkI are dated 1872-1874.

    In our case this rifle is an official conversion done in the London arsenal.

    The most obvious alteration, on completion of the conversion was a second roman “1” stamped onto the action to denote its upgrade and the stock roundel was stamped with a second “1.
