This is a nice example of the British Military's final version of the Martini Henry rifle. This one was built in 1888 by Enfield with Crown and Mark IV designations on the right side of the receiver. This rifle is all correct and original. Caliber 450-577. Overall, this one is in NRA Antique Fine plus condition with 85% original receiver blue and 95% original 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. Nice stock with the correct hole for the long lever...many Mark IV's have plugged holes for the short lever, not this one...its a pure Mark IV stock. The original Enfield cartouche is the right side of the stock with the correct Mark IV designation ...one of the nicer cartouches on an Enfield as you will 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 and the case colors on the lever are incredible! 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!
