British Martini Henry rifles and Sniders - obsolete calibre rifles used by the British Army during the mid to late 1800`s

Most recognised as the Zulu`s rifle used by the chaps at Roarkes Drift (shortlever Mk2`s at that time though forced the upgrade to the longlever mk4 due to ruptured casings). Firing a belter of a .577 bullet, single load from the top each time, they were great for the time (in comparison with equivilent Sniders and muskets) but still loud and smokey. These are all Obsolete Calibre - that is, they have full working actions and barrels, but you can no longer get the ammo so no license is required to own one.
