After a session in the local pub on Saturday, one of my neighbours mentioned that he had heard that I had some involvement with the army and could I help him. Some 2 hours later in his garage I was confronted in his garage with a Martini Henry carbine ( 0.455) circa 1895 Mak 2 ( upgraded to a mark 3). Having never seen one before and given it a quick clean it appears to be in good order and could be put into working order by the addition of a few simple bits. Question 1 --- what is worth? Question 2 --- how do we make it legal ? current owner only wants it as a wall trophy. Question 3 --- web site 'google' suggests it was issued to Devonshire Regt in Dec 1895 and has a V Volunteers on the brass circular butt plate. However there is also an ' A' after the Dvn stamp --hardly artillery but what?
