2x MkIII Martini Henry .450/577

1x M-H .450/577 cavalry carbine

1x trade (Belgian?) Snider action shotgun
Barstewards! :D

As it happens I am at last getting one of my Sniders on the road to entering next years HBSA mid range; there were only two Sniders entered this year so I feel a bit guilty about not supporting "The Hythe" which is the match for .577 calibre rifles.
I do have a problem with it regarding the extractor which is a replacment judging by the patina, the rifle (2 band MkII) was bought from Fultons and it was always a bit difficult to chamber a case, well I have taken it to Greenfields in Salisbury which is about 100 yards from work who I hope can sort the problem.

The next job will be to get my Martini Henry up and running (must remember to get it put on my ticket first!) this one is a MkIV long lever, I have dies for it but need to change my press as the current one will not accept the larger dies, although the NDFS dies I have for the Snider fit the old press.
