Antique English .577/450 cal Martini Henry Mk 2 Military Breech-Loading Rifle. A rare and fabulous lot of these important and historic Military Rifles. The rifle became an historic legend due to its performance in the Zulu Wars of 1877 - 1879 specifically at Rorke's Drift and Isandlwana. These are 1870s dated examples by Enfield and BSA, they have 7-groove rifled barrels stamped with British Military Proof and Ordnance markings; the action with Crown VR markings and date; the butts with military stamps, complete with sling swivels and steel clearing rod. They take both sword and socket bayonets. They were part of a consignment of 8000 Rifles supplied by the British to the Nepalese Army in 1894. They were stored in the Lagan Silekhana Palace Armoury, greased-up, unused and untouched for more than 100 years. Excellent condition.
