    I don't know by the way but it would have to be worth something.

    Milsey, take it to Shooters Supplies on Riccarton Road. They deal with a lot of antique stuff.

    It's a 1899 Martini Enfield artillery carbine MkIII converted from a Martini Henry Rifle MkII I think. What's the barrel like? Peckerhead doesn't bid on shit, but you need to get someone with knowledge to value it as I don't know how rare they are. Antique Arms in CH CH
    Would help.

    Hi, Yes it has.

    The markings I see are: V.R (with a picture of a crown above it) then below Enfield 1899, M.E 303, A.C.11, with another 1 below that. There are smaller markings that I will need better light to view.
