BSA Martini's, Wonderful metallurgy, elegant design, superb craftsmanship from 'the old days', typically accurate and classy. Every bit the equal to Win. and Colt's and faarrr cheaper.
Whats not to like?

Yes, it's a good old gun, not just a cheap one. Old world technology - Americans will regard it as "quirky".

Not sure you're in the right section, mind.

Recessed crown in that model won't be factory, but if it cures some old crown damage and makes it shoot better, happy days.

Martini 12/15 can be very accurate rifles.

I have had a number of Martini rifles, including some of the Mark models. They have all been good shooters. The only one I still own is a 12/15 which, if memory serves me, has shot at least one 200-20x score on the 50 yard A23/5 targets. They are easy to clean and maintain. I did have a gunsmith bed & free float the barrel as best possible and cut a recessed crown early on. And they will hold their value well.

Thank you for the information. The crown was recessed a long time ago. Probably when it was used as a club rifle in England.

YES, not a factory hand-stop plate, but a later add-on. Remember, the Brits were using dual-point (2-point) slings long after other nations went to the now standard, single-point.
You can have that area routed out and install an Anschutz or Freeland rail there. Many have been done that way.

Range update.

I Took it to the indoor range today. After getting the barrel seasoned, it was shooting nice tight groups. There is one problem that came to light while shooting. If i didn't seat the new shell completely into the chamber. The firing pin would strike the primer while I was putting the block into battery with the level. Im sure this isn't normal. The chamber is clean but seems very tight. Not sure if conventional ammunition is designed differently than the British ammo the chamber/lead/barrel was designed around. All groups shot at 50 feet standing with my left elbow on the table supporting the forend. It should be a sweet bench shooter!
