Just traded into this Martini 1215. Based on serial number I believe it to be an early 1950. Have gotten to the range yet so only pics at this time. Gun is in nice condition with decent blueing and no serious flaws in the wood. Comes complete with PH7A rear and a SF22 front with a set of Shaver inserts.

I am very impressed with your beautiful rifle.

It is not a 12/15 but it is an International and it looks like a Mk II as the front of the trigger guard shows two trigger adjustment screws.

Nice work

Hope somebody comes forward and says "I did that." Nice wood and nice stocking job. When our club shot Schuetzen about half the rifles were BSAs and the others were Lowalls, Ballard, etc. The BSAs had good barrels, they could keep up with anything at 100 benchrest. Mine likes Eley Match (black box.)

I live in southwestern Montana, a local guy did the stockwork, it is his own design and he used some great charactered french walnut. I saw it in a local show and purchased it from him. I feel very lucky to have it! Indeed it is a MK ii. One other interesting feature of the rifle is that there was a metal block added on the right rear of the receiver which keeps the shells from ejecting to far.. It flips them down and it really settles the otherwise extreme ejection characteristics of the MKIi.

photobucket

I see that I cannot view a number of photos. Specifically those listed on photobucket. they say I have to upgrade to a paid account to view photos. something I don't plan on doing. There are enough companies out there trying to get my money. Too bad as i would like to see the pics of peoples guns, but not enough that I am going to pay to do it

it is not you who needs to upgrade it is the people who posted the photos. I moved mine over to Imgur (at least for now) as they don't charge to post photos to forums

Seeing's how there are a few Canucks from the east on here I am going too bring this thread back from the dead!
Here is a pic of my father when he was shooting with the C.I.L. company recreational team in the mid 50's when C.I.L. had their ammunition plant in Brownsburg Quebec
Apparently that team didn't lose a match in ten years!

I am guessing but I think this was taken at Cannaught.

Thanks

I have found them at Prophet River Firearms and Ellwood Epps on occasion, also on Canadian Gun Nutz.

II think the easiest however is to get Prophet River too bring one in from Gunbroker.com, etc. Clay usually charges about $2000 to bring a rifle inn these days.

G'day folks,
couldn't find an "Introduce yourself" post, so this is as good a spot as any to begin eh!

More to the fact, it's a Martini post and these fine firearms are a favourite of mine. Matter of fact KiwiShooter has posted a pick of one of mine in his post. That particular rifle is in 17Ackley Hornet. It has a #4 Shillen barrel fitted, a custom safety in the trigger guard and hand carved stock. It fell into my hands at a ridiculously low cost; couldn't get the money out of the wallet quick enough for fear of the seller changing his mind!!

Currently there are seven Martini's sitting in the safes. Two are original Martini Cadet service rifles in 310Cadet. There's the 17AH, plus another in 22K-Hornet which is a project in the works awaiting stock work.

The other three comprise two rimfires and one I jokingly call the "Franken-Martini" This particular rifle is chambered in 357Mag and is fitted with a heavy weight Tobler barrel.

In the pipeline are two Martini actions awaiting on funding for custom rebuilds. One is a standard Cadet action and I'm planning on a wildcat based on the Australian 222Rimmed cartridge. The 222Rimmed will be necked down to 20-calibre. This is one of the easiest custom wildcats to do; run a 204 reamer in to the same depth as the 222Rimmed - job done. The dies are simply 204Ruger dies shortened to the 222Rimmed length and a single pass through the FLS die sorts out the brass before neck expanding and turning. Should be a good little rig for spotlighting.

The other is an Afghannie Kyber Pass action which was originally 577-450. These actions aren't really much chop per se, but it will be fine for a 22rimfire. So I have a local gunsmith lined up to re-work this action into a 22 plinker with a difference.

I'll have to sort out some pcis of my Martini collection and post here.

Look forward to more info on these fantastic firearms.
