    1875 Gahendra Arsenal Martini Henry Rifle (refurbished) $350

    I bought this as an unrestored as-is piece about 10 years ago. Originally I bought two, hoping to end up with one good rifle to give as a present to a friend. I was fortunate and ended up with two! His was non-firing due to some damage but mine is intact.
    This can probably be fired, though I have not. It has the .45 bore, not .50 as English MH’s do.
    Folks have made shells from 16ga brass shotshells, but I never tried.

    I cannot guarantee this is in firing condition, but I believe it is.

    Asking $350 (price drop from $400) plus shipping. I can ship this through the post office since it is an antique.

    The pictures show up fine for me
    Don't like being hammered by the Cast Boolits Staff, then don't be a nail.
    The rules are simple to follow.

    I'll see what I can do. Maybe the files are too large... The reply post pictures don't show up on my computer either! They worked on my phone...

    WinchesterM1, thank-you for the offer but I am fundraising for my wedding and need the $$.

    A couple more pictures keep failing to upload. I suspect it is a file size limitation.

    Probably easiest way is if anyone wants another view/angle, please PM with an email address or phone number and I can email/text it you.

    I'll consider offers.

    I know the wood isn't smooth and purty, I know how to do it, but it didn't feel right to make a rifle made in 1875 look new. She's earned her beauty marks, I figure.

    Harry, your mailbox is full.
    Here’s my reply;
    Yes, she appears to be in firing condition. The barrel and chamber are clean. The firing pin and mechanism are intact last I had her apart.
