Deactivated British .577 Martini Henry Rifle converted to 22LR in very good deactivated condition and with Creedmoor target rear sight . 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. 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. All deactivated weapons sold by D and B Militaria are deactivated in the United Kingdom and hold London or Birmingham proof marks and a certificate stating that the weapon has been deactivated correctly and is legal within the U.K.
