Description

Officially adopted on 28th of September 1907, these are original British Martini-Henry service rifles that date from the 1870s and 1880s which were converted for training purposes to very rare bayonet practice muskets. Each retains original British markings and was converted from a working rifle to a sprung loaded training musket with a metal ball at the “point” to prevent harm to one’s opponent.

Though clear signs of age are had and the rifle has clearly been heavily used the overall condition is still quite good.

An extremely rare collectors piece that would surely find a well deserved spot on display!
