Martini-Enfield Pattern 1896
Martini Enfield carbine. The stock consists of a slight drop to the butt which has a steel plate secured by two screws. The fore-end is secured by pins to the barrel and has a steel nose cap which incorporates a band passing over the barrel itself. The lock is a falling block of Peabody-Martini-Enfield form. The cocking indicator is vertical when 'fired' and inclines to the rear when cocked. The barrel is rifled and fitted with a blade foresight and a tangent rear sight sighted to 500 yards base and 2,000 yards on the leaf. The calibre is 303in. Inscribed on the right side of action is a crown over 'VR' over 'ENFIELD' over '1876' over 'crown and arrow' over 'II' over '2'. The government disposal mark appears on the action and the barrel. There is a host of view, proof and acceptance marks on the barrel and action. It is probable that this weapon was originally a Martini Henry 0.577/450 of 1876 which was reduced to 0.303in in 1896.
