xsiv4s - if you've never seen the movie Zulu (and if you didn't immediately recognize a Martini action, I'm guessing you haven't seen it) I can HIGHLY recommend you watch "Zulu".Man, you guys are good...I spent an hour looking for shotguns and it looks like it's not even a shotgun. I better stick to my day job.
Something is tickling a far away memory cell, Gehendra, Nepal, Martini. Something like that. Another shooting friend/family that likes the unusual and odd ball stuff may be shooting one.I bought a big pile of reloading supplies at an auction this weekend and scored big (Lots of parts, breeches, black powder stuff that wasn't even listed). This shotgun receiver was in one of the boxes, but I don't have a clue what it is??? Any ideas?
Yep. And a single arrow, indicating that the weapon was never released from British control. So, that's likely a captured weapon or a weapon lost from the British government.Third photo shows the British proof stampings.
