Original British Martini-Henry MkIII Breech Block - Stripped

Item Description

Original Items: These are original British-Manufactured and marked stripped breech blocks for the MkIII Martini-Henry rifle. These were also used in the IC1 Carbine, and also are correct for MkII Short Lever rifles with the S-X (Strengthened Extractor) mark on the front of the receiver. The MkIII version is slightly wider than the MkII, and has a slightly larger firing pin/striker hole for the sturdier MkIII striker.

These breech blocks will all have British markings and proofs, which vary quite a bit. These were made by Enfield, BSA, LSA and others, and may have maker marks (our choice). There may also be Nepalese arsenal markings.

Very Few available.

Note: Stripped Breech block ONLY. No striker, spring, or retaining nuts included.
