    Hi Lee
    you must be able to get hold of one in this country without going to the expence of importing one?
    is it a peabody you are after or the more common Martini henry?
    there is a big price differance its hard to find a cheap Henry they all seem to be at least £500 to £600 this is too much i think though deacs go for much less.

    realy i want a mk1 , 2 or 3 martini henry but as you said they are fetching alot of money now but im willing to settle for a good nepalese version (gahendra or Francotte patters ). i guess its keep searching or save up

    the dealer had some martini rifles for around £320 to £340 i think this is about as cheep as you will find. the trouble is you have to purchase a very dirty gun that will be blocked up with dirt and gunk so you wont be able to look at things like rifling and action condition so it's a bit of a gamble but fun if you like getting your hands dirty.

    International Military Antiques (IMA) has Martini Henrys for sale here in the US. I live close to their new retail store and went there with my son to look at the Henrys. You can purchase one cleaned up for $700 to $850 or take one that needs to be cleaned/restored for $350 or so depending on the model. I may just have to grab one to work on!
