    EXTREMELY RARE, ZULU/ BOER WAR, British, Enfield 1873 Dated, Martini Henry .577x 450, MK 1 Type 2 Service Rifle & Leather Sling. Sn 11118 - 11118

    This is an excellent, rare, example of the MK 1 Type 2 Martini Henry .577x 450 Service Rifle. It has original woodwork which has a crisp Enfield MK1 roundel stamp in the stock. The wood is undamaged with just very minor bumps and bruises consistent with age. The metal work is undamaged and has a lovely plumb patina. It is stamped on its right side 'Crown 'VR' (Victoria Regina) Enfield and date '1873'. It also has the correct MK 1 designation. The rifled bore is crisp and clean with just minor wear and small areas of staining. The rifle strips, cocks and dry fires perfectly. It is complete with all of the MK1 Type 2 features including MK 1 trigger, original steel ram rod, 3 sling swivels, bayonet lug, chequered steel butt plate (changed to smooth on later models). The Mark 1 Type 1 had a safety catch this was removed when the MK1 Type 2 was introduced. This Type 2 example is correctly without safety catch. This example also has the correct now rare to find bronze cocking pin, rear ladder sight graduated to 1400 yards and block and blade fore sight. The weapon is fully ordnance marked including the barrel bands. Mark 1 Martinis saw service in the Zulu and Boer Wars. Weapons that saw South African service in those campaigns did not return to the UK at the time MK 1 rifles were being converted to MK 2’s and so avoided the conversion process it is therefore likely that this rifle remained in South Africa during its service life. Also included is an original brown leather sling. Price for this rare MK1 Type 2 Martini which has avoided conversion includes UK delivery. NB As an obsolete calibre, antique weapon no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 11118
