This is a nice example of the British Military's final version of the Martini Henry rifle. This one was built in 1887 by Enfield. All correct and original. Caliber 450-577. Overall, this one is in NRA Antique Fine plus condition with 85% original receiver blue and 50% thinning barrel blue. The lever retains nearly all of its bright original case colors with lots of vivid blues, blue-greens, and tans. The wood is in Very good shape with excellent wood to metal fit and a few of the run of the mill dings and scratches which occurred during its military service. The cartouches on the right side of the stock are excellent, very sharp and not hazy...about as nice of cartouches on an Enfield as you will ever find. Action is nice and the bore is Excellent: mirror bright with sharp rifling and no pits...this would be difficult to improve upon. Original Mark IV style ramrod, sights, and sling swivels. This is a superior example of a Mark IV priced for hundreds less than you will find often in lesser condition. Like all good things, they must come to an end...we've had a great run of high quality Mark IV's but there probably won't be many more this nice!
