    Default Wanted: Martini Henry in dilapidated/poor condition needed for restoration project /1885 Era Black

    Good day to all members..I believe all is well and good on your side? Members I am on the lookout for a donor Martini Henry that is in a poor condition/not functional to restore for the 2021 Era Black powder hunt...this project will be to the advantage of our young participants who does not have a black powder rifle to hunt with ...It really would be great if such a donor project is possible to acquire...looking forward to hear from members in this regard...

    Gert, a bit to the side, but what would such a donor be worth?, I am guessing less than a R1000 ?
    Hope you do not mind my asking here, but price may encourage some one as well?, I am asking because I wish to build a base knowledge on the M/H values.
