    Martini Henry 303 extractor

    I'm after a Matini Henry extractor to get my Hollis Martini Sporting Rifle 500 3" express fully operational

    Reading up on the Martini Henry service rifles I now realise that the 303 extractor used in the conversion from 577/450 to 303 would be the ideal extractor.
    It had the same size and shape and only has longer horns for the smaller rim diameter of the 303.
    So it would be much easier to machine down the 303 extractor than build up the 577/450 extractor to suit the 500 express rim that is somewhere between the two.

    So any old 303 extractors out there ?
    Or a whole martini henry action ?
    Or know of any guys who have MH parts around ?

    Cheers
