7th February 2004Martini-Henry on E-bay
By John Young
Given the number of you who have been sounding off about the price Martini-Henry rifles, cast your eyes on: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2223655731&category=583

Just so you know.

Hi John, yes very nice it is.The law changed however, and all those nice deactivated rifles that were needlessly vandalised- as you no longer need firearms licence-they are "off certificate"
I realise it is for all that srill a nice piece

I wonder just how de activated it is? At the moment the price would be fair for a collection of spare parts. However I think we can expect the price to go much higher. I wonder what MK it is. Hard to tell from the photos. Note that EBay try not to sell functional firearms as a matter of policy.

The gentleman concerned mentions on eBay that he has another one for sale. I assume this is a fully-functional weapon as he is asking 700 for it.

Cheers
