    I am selling an 1885 Martini Henry Rifle. I could not find any Out of Service Proofs on this Martini Henry Rifle. I know IMA is selling these rifles for $700.00 plus shipping.The bore of this Martini Henry is Excellent! I don't think this rifle was shot a lot.

    I does have the "N.S. NEP"- Native Service, Nepal Mark on the left Side of the Barrel just Under the Rear Site Base. This means it was sent to Nepal and saw service there.

    Here are some Markings that cane be found on the Metal. There are Proof Marks on the stock. There is hardened Grease around the trigger and areas of the receiver.

    The Sovereign's, or Royal Cypher is Queen's Cypher, accompanied by Victoria's initials, "V.R." for "Victoria Regina" (Latin for "Queen Victoria").

    Manufacture’s Code is ENFIELD, The Royal Small Arms Factory (RSAF) at Enfield Lock.

    Lock Viewer’s Mark is the Enfield Crown with an Arrow.
