You could remake a new rail from some aluminum flat stock and drill and tap similar to the original.
What usually do is replace it with a newer design similar to the later Internationals.

I can attest that the pull-weight can go down to "outright dangerous". I had an ND inside my bedroom from one I am finishing and only lack the finishing of the wood to put back together. I was trying spent cases and felt no trip of the striker so I considered that I would have to pull the whole trigger guts apart and look for the culprit.
Instead, I tried seating a live round to check ejection and killed a book on my dresser nightstand.
It took only a few turns of the trigger screw to get it back to acceptable levels. I don't have a trigger pull gauge that would go down to the weight the Martini's can go. BUT....be willing to test safe levels before you go to the range or are around other people. You can get them to detonate JUST by closing the breech (cocking lever).

Here are a couple pictures of the Rifle with refinished stock set. After it finishes curing for for just a bit longer I will work it out with rottenstone for an even finer finish. I think it looks pretty good, color matches well and I like a satin finish on it. Should it actually have a gloss finish?

What work is there to do accurizing the stock set, bedding or anything else?

That is correct. Negligent Discharge. AND, without a finger on the trigger.

BSA Martinis are known for this if the trigger is not set properly.

Yes, and although I own over a dozen, I should have known. To my weak defense, that was the first cartridge I had placed in the chamber of that particular rifle.
All I can think of is that I had backed out the set screws when checking to see if they were not frozen. That had happened quite a while before putting the rifle back together.

No one hurt, and you already fixed everything. I was a range officer for over 25 years in a Fed agency. Had my first ND in my garage AFTER I retired. Dam Glocks...I despise the plastic blob. (Glock owners know what i mean when I say I 'made it safe'.) That final step has killed people.

I think it looks pretty good too! I much prefer a nice satin sheen to the hi gloss finish and would continue with your plans for the rottenstone finish.

Wow - some nice looking Martinis. Just got my first MK-II and learning it. I see refinishing as a possible winter project. Did a little ammo testing last weekend and RWS Target rifle and shockingly Federal High Vel match turned in the best groups.

One question though, I had several varieties of Eley and none of them would chamber. Is that normal ?

It can go down to Negligent Discharge, in seconds flat. Been there, done that.

Pugs, that is a nice looking rifle. Stock looks great in your picture. I would scrub the chamber really well and see if that takes care of it.

I thought I cleaned it pretty well before I shot it but will certainly give that a try.

Not normal.

UK rifle, UK ammo, something is wrong if Eley won't chamber.
