    I've got a Martini Henry I'm looking to sell, has a modern Din Collins barrel? The Sharpes falling block is a nice rifle but the barrel length an weight makes them a bit ungainly I sold mine, but I now have the same in a short carbine, it's an awesome little gun and as accurate as hell!
    Boom, cough,cough,cough

    Prefer a Sharps but will look at others.

    I was in Custom Guns (Invercargill) yesterday and he was selling a Henry 45/70 levergun, it was really nice, bloody nice in fact, better than any of the Marlins I've seen. I think he has a Sharps on the rack too, he's on he as "greghud" , www.customguns.co.nz

    Elios gunshop in Dunedin had a martini converted to 45/70 on the rack a while ago. Was around 2k from memory but was a very nice rifle.
