Sporterizing Martini Henry
Posted 18 October 2005 - 11:16 PM
I know I'm way out in left field to even consider it!! I keep thinking the new 50 cal. Smith & Wesson would be kind of cool in a single shot. I don't know for certain and just speculating that the 303 Martinis were made for Cordite and not black powder. I'm really trying to dig into my memory but I think the sporterized Martinis I saw were chambered into something along the lines of 22 Hornet or 219 Zipper. Does anybody have any idea of a Martini's pressure limits??

As it happens, I ran across this thread in my wanderings:
A Martini Sporter
This looks like a very cool rifle to me.
And... I know I'll date myself, but when I was a kid the Martinis were a glut on the market.
Now they're scarce as hen's teeth.
Good luck with you project.

Thad has many BSA Martini 22LR match rifles for sale.
Two of the problems of sporterizing Martinis is scope mounting and stocking with a pistol grip shaped stock.

The Cadets are sweet looking rifles though.

The top one is in .357 Maximum, the bottom one is in .17 Ackely Bee. Nice little fun guns. I've got a large frame in the works, probably will be a .50-90 BP. Will be a while before that one is done...
