    WTS Martini Henry Carbine

    I have my martini Henry carbine for sale on trade me. Not sure what its worth.

    Does anyone have any ideas or reasonable offers. Will add link when I get to computer.

    I use the same user name on trade me as this forum.

    Hi Jim is it the very corroded one, I bought a nice clean Reeves carbine , non military, for $500, just sold a nice long rifle martini with an excellent bore for $650. This looks in poor condition if it's the one I think, unless it's a rare one, and that I don't know, and I don't know what the barrels like, not worth much hope this helps, or not
    Boom, cough,cough,cough

    It is pretty rough. Really only wanted to sell to fund another project but have changed my mind.

    I brought it years ago within hours of it been removed from under a house. Even though its rough, I might keep it until I get a better one.

    Thanks for the help.

    I gave it a good clean and the rifling looks ok. I'm going to take it to a gunsmith to have it checked to see if its safe to fire. If it is I will get some rounds and try and shoot it on Anzac Day.

    That sounds awesome. Will have it checked first to make sure its safe to shoot first. I think it will be fun to shoot if it is safe to fire.
    But I need to get a rear sight for it as well. Not a biggy but will need to get one at some stage.

    Nope you won't need a sight! First shot you'll decide it's a wall hanger, to look at while your shoulder heals and yr nose stops bleeding?
    BRADS and Mac like this.
