    Martini Metford .303

    I have for sale a Martini Meford artillery carbine. MK2 .303.

    This rifle was produced at Enfield in 1874 as a infantry model MK2 in 577/450. It was later re-barreled in 1895 to .303 and converted to a carbine.

    The stock disc indicates that it was issued to the 43rd regiment Royal Artillery in 1896.

    The rifle is in a original condition, were no attempt has been made of a recondition. It is stamped with various proof and inspection marks that would be expected of a firearm of this type.

    350 ono

    I will be taking a few pictures and uploading asap. PM for further details.

    Are you sure that isn't a Martini-Enfield? Check on the top of the knox, if there's an E there then it's a Martini-Enfield. The knox form on yours is a slightly different shape to mine, so I guess it could have Metford rifling.
