    Early Vickers Martini-actioned .22 Rifle

    This one just doesnt fit my collector interest so needs a new home . I purchased it off a member here a while back , and its a pretty good shooter with the el-cheapo ammo I used on the day.

    Fitted with a Weaver mount base , and the muzzle threaded for a suppressor.

    The stock as been adapted / modifies around the lever/trigger guard area as shown in pics , but otherwise I suspect it is all original. original butt plate . Stock is a very nice piece of timber in very nice condition.

    Has Sold From Service stampings and dated 1917 so an early historical piece if thats your thing.

    Very heavy barrel - these things have a great reputation for small bore shooting . Bore is very good , action is very crisp and ejects fine.

    In Taranaki , can ship at your expense via Firearms Dealers Network , or such arrangements as suit . Police paperwork required , obviously. Or FtF.

    Asking $300.
