    An Ottoman Empire Peabody Martini-Henry Rifle Lever Action Rifles

    ~ An Ottoman Empire Peabody Martini-Henry Rifle ~


    Unable to purchase Martini–Henry rifles from the British because their entire production was going to rearming British troops, Ottoman Turkey purchased weapons identical to the Mark I from the Providence Tool Company in Providence, Rhode Island, United States (the manufacturers of the somewhat similar Peabody rifle), and used them effectively against the Russians in the Russo-Turkish War (1877–1878).

    This is an excellent example of a Turkish piece marked with the Ottoman proofs on both sides of the lockplate.

    This Martini is similar with the British field modified MK I into MK II, with the modernized bayonet fitting and the rear sight mounted lower down the barrel.

    The muzzle ring is adapted for the usage of the sword bayonet, but a socket bayonet can also be used on this particular model.

    The loading lever is the early short type (MK I).

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The barrel is 82.5 cm (32.48 inches )and the overall length of the rifle is 125 cm (49.21 inches).

    It weighs 3.8 kg.

    ~ Condition ~

    The Rifle is in good condition, preserving most of its blue.

    The bore is clean and the rifling fine.

    The wooden stock has a missing splinter towards the chamber end (please see the pictures).

    The rifle cocks and fires with ease.

    ~ Postage ~

    Postage costs £18 or the piece can be collected from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
