    Martini metford ,303

    Do any of you out their that are interested in historic firearms have any idea of what a martini metford carbine would be worth.

    Its a ACII model. original made in 1874 and converted in 1895. condition wise is very good.

    Any advice would be welcome

    Just like that. Thanks for the link. Really didn't have a idea on price. Think it will be sale time in the future.

    It's ok. Pity it's a 303 as the 577/450 is a bit easier to shift.

    Best of luck.

    There is a market for them and for some, shooters, BORE CONDITION is all. For the "cut and weld" de-activation market external condition is all. And for BOTH originality and condition of the sights....not knocked crooked or so such.

    Lovely old rifle, it would sell for about twice that price here.

    that is a very nice looking rifle, there is something about the look of old guns that I just love.

    I have one similar to that except that it's a MArtini-Enfield and was professionally refurbished (re-blued) and proofed during the 1960s. The avid collector would have a fit at the refurbishment, but it looks as issued now.

    The market is rather varied at the moment it seems. I would suggest talking to a specialist dealer in such items a they know what the market is like NOW. Saying what one sold for last year is of no use as the market is changing so quickly.
