I ordered the Martini Henry rifle not too long ago. Being the first one I bought on here I was a little nervous. When I received this, not only was I wowed, but this is just one awesome item. Do not hesitate to pay the extra cash for the hand pick! You will not be disappointed. The rife has some wear as you'd expect with antique guns, but its nothing bad at all. Just need to clean it is all. From the look over, I believe this rife can fire again. I'll be ordering another rifle from these guys soon. Great people to deal with!
