Brand new Stock and matching fore Arm  for

Martini Henry Mark I or Mark II


Save your piece of history!

Use one of these new stocks to refurbish an old warrior and give it a new lease on life! 

 Many of them will still breath fire if you'll only give them the chance! They were first issued in 1871 but our military still faced a few of them in Afghanistan! (see the informational entry below) 


This new stock set consists of the butt stock and the fore stock and fits Martini Henry Mark I or Mark II infantry long rifles.  Note:The replacement stocks are pre-shaped to accommodate most of the original parts.


You will need to get your dremel out and finish the fitting of it...

Most Martini's are handmade unique guns...   


 

Excerpt from a Wickipedia entry….

"The Martini-Henry was a breech-loading single-shot lever-actuated rifle adopted by the British Army, combining the dropping-block action first developed by Henry O. Peabody (in his Peabody rifle) and improved by the Swiss designer Friedrich von Martini, whose work in bringing the cocking and striker mechanism all within the receiver greatly improved the operation of the rifle, which new iteration was combined with the polygonal barrel rifling designed by Scotsman Alexander Henry. It first entered service in 1871, eventually replacing the Snider-Enfield, a muzzle-loader conversion to the cartridge system. Martini-Henry variants were used throughout the British Empire for 30 years. Though the Snider was the first breechloader firing a metallic cartridge in regular British service, the Martini was designed from the outset as a breechloader and was both faster firing and had a longer range.

There are four classes of the Martini-Henry rifle: Mark I (released in June 1871), Mark II, Mark III, and Mark IV. There was also an 1877 carbine version with variations that included a Garrison Artillery Carbine, an Artillery Carbine (Mark I, Mark II, and Mark III), and smaller versions designed as training rifles for military cadets. The Mark IV Martini-Henry rifle ended production in the year 1889, but remained in service throughout the British Empire until the end of the First World War. It was seen in use by some Afghan tribesmen as late as the Soviet invasion. Early in 2010 and 2011, United States Marines recovered at least three from various Taliban weapons caches in Marjah.[1] In April 2011, another Martini-Henry rifle was found near Orgun in Paktika Province by United States Army's 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault)."


 I have an ebay store and have other gun parts.  If you buy multiple items I will cut the shipping in half for the second item. As with any parts for a firearm you would need a competent gunsmith to certify your parts and your loading etc before use. 

 This sale is for the Stock and fixtures shown in the pictures only.  

  Will ship to the lower 48 states only.  No exporting. No returns, you can pretty much see what I can see on this. 

E-bay notes.... 

  I do not certify the various parts off the firearms for firearm use due to Ebay rules.  It is only a part intended for restoration and showing-re-enactment purposes only... not firing of a projectile. As with any parts for a firearm you would need a competent gunsmith to certify your parts, combinations of parts, installation of parts and certify it for your loads before any use.  You would also need a gunsmith to certify legality of the resulting firearm...  therefore this part is not intended for such.  It is sold for restoration purposes. 

   Will ship to the lower 48 states only.  No exporting.   I have an ebay store and have other gun parts.  If you buy multiple items I will cut the shipping in half for the second item (The least expensive shipping is the one cut in half). No returns, you can pretty much see what I can see on this.
