Deactivated Martini Custom 12 Bore Shotgun in good deactivated condition. This started life as a British military Martini Henry and has many military stamps. It has been converted at a later date to a shotgun. The Martini Enfield first entered service with the British Empire in 1871 and remained in use with some colonial troops until the early 1920s. The large calibre .577 bullet could cause terrible injury at ranges out to 1800 metres and by all accounts the Martini could shoot accurately out to close to these ranges when used by British `Lifers’. They are still in use in some of the more arcane parts of the world and have even been recovered in Taliban weapon caches in Afghanistan recently! Obsolete calibre, no licence required.
