|10th April 2004||Martini Henry MK 11|
By Russell Hartley - Jones
Can anyone direct me to the whereabouts of purchasing a De-activate Martini Henry MK11.
I would be very grateful for any help.

If you are resident in UK you will be able to possess one without it needing to be deactivated. I would venture to go so far as to say it is better to preserve such items as they are, and not subject them to deactivation anyway - it will certainly decrease the value.
If you would like to e-mail me off forum I will gladly try and help you.

I've sent you an EMail direct suggesting a source from which you shouldbe able to obtain a MkII Martini-Henry rifle.
I echo Adrian's sentiments above.

Would you mind emailing me with the source too?

Try W H Smiths, they sell a magazine called Gun Mart, the rear sections do have a good classifieds section. You often find Martinis for sale, but be prepared for big spondulux ££'s
The last de-ac I saw was a MK111 at £300.
The magazine has some good website inks, don,t bother trying to type in MH on a search engine, apart from a few interesting sites, there is alot about an obscure rock band called the martini henry's.
P.s. I am on the lookout for an early lee-metford if anyone is in the know?

I saw some nice early mkii examples, in original condition, recently at Farnham militaria fair, Victorian Militaria had them. I have their contact number if anyone requires it.

There is a huge auction of zulu war militaria on 14 Dec at Anderson and Garland auctioneers in Newcastle pon tyne, all from the private collection of dennis slack
