T Nuts for Martini International Rail



Log in to see fewer ads
Does anyone know a source for the T-Nuts that fit the forend rail on a Martini International? I'd like to build flat adapter to stabilize side to side movement.

thanks,

Randy

The head thickness would have to be 0.113" or less and the width of the slot for the head is .513" so the Rockler T bolt heads are too wide at .5625". The thickness might work but it'd be really tight. I could probably grind them to fit but was hoping to find something made for the slot.

I purchased some nuts that were supposed to be for an Annie rail and they were too large as well.

Thanks for the suggestion.

If you know someone with a small mill they are easy to make.
Just a t shaped piece of aluminum 3 inches long with 2 holes drilled and tapped.

I make a few bits and bobs for the Martini's - I'm not a factory, engineer or machinist but and old retired guy working in my home shop.

I handmake two types of "T" nut that fit the BSA rail, I use a stainless steel M8 x 25mm one that I use on my little target rifle bipods and I use brass blocks with an M6 thread. I could supply and ship a couple over to you (from UK).

My bits:
I do a right and left scope mount to fit the Mk2,3,4,5,.

3" benchrest block in oak:


Small bipod:


Brass "T" nut

I have received one of your scope mounts for my Martini MkIV, could not be more impressed with it. First rate work indeed! Happy to spread the word. Bobbie

Do your scope mounts for the MkIII center the rail over the boreline?
And is it available in a 20 and 30moa?

Yes, the scope mount is, as near as I can make it, centred over the bore line. I don't normally make any for 20 or 30 moa, but, as all my stuff is hand made, I could do one for you.

I'm not a retailer, factory, engineer, or machinist, I'm and old retired guy with a home workshop.

I could hack something, Im another old retired guy, but I cant find my workshop...., and you do very nice work
I noticed another mount that specified it was good for MkI and IIs but the action width put it off for the thicker IIIs, etc. No big deal for a given range within 100yds or so but Im looking at setting up for random distance targets from 50 to 400yds, seems a centered mount would be the right thing and that 30moa looks adequate from the armchair, but......still cipherin on that for the scope I have.
