Item Description

Original Item: Only one available. Today these have become very hard to find. Originally manufactured in 1884 in .450/577 caliber as an artillery carbine this example was converted to .303 caliber and shipped to Egypt for colonial service in 1906. It was put into use at the great CITADEL armory of Cairo.

Receiver plate is nicely marked:

Enfield

1884

MkIII

"III" indicates that this rifle started life as a Mark III. On the opposite side off the receiver there is a star with crescent moon marking over:

CITADEL

1906

The Carbine has fine mottled finish overall and comes complete with sling swivels and brass marking disc to the butt stock bearing a marking in Arabic making this a very nice hard to find military Martini carbine with masses of British and colonial history.
