Dave, that's quite a collection, would you be interested in a '15' to join the team? I'm thinning my cabinet down and this one is sat there not being used, looking for a good home for it

Here are my two current Martinis:

Cadet in 218 Bee:


Vickers with Redfield 3200:


Since these pictures were taken, the Cadet has new windage adjustable rings and a Weaver T-16, while I have removed the scope from the Vickers and reinstalled the Parker Hale target sights. I found the Vickers so accurate that I decided to try target sights with my new eyeglasses.

few of mine

17 Squirrel, 17cal Bauska cut rifled barrel, custom Walnut stock.


218 Bee, Douglas Barrel, 10X Spot shot scope. Bought this one here, looked great, nothing worked right. It now has the lever reformed, extractor replaced, has been bushed.



Another 218 Bee, Douglas barrel, custom safety in the trigger guard, walnut stock, Redfield 4X Widefield scope. On this rifle everything works as it should, needs nothing.


22 Hornet, PH8 rear sight, 24" sporter barrel.

few more

This is a 17MK2 that Vic Samuels took a 12/15 barrel, recontoured it, first third is Hex, then re-lined it. Stock was a pattern I made and got tired of trying to find someone to turn stocks for me without taking off my head in price. Painted it, camo'ed it up and ....here it is.


This is a 17 HMR, Green Mountain barrel, Stock is English Walnut by Wenigs.



Little Sportco Martini 22LR I bought from one of the regulars here. All I did on this one was refinish the stock with oil. It's one of my son's favorites, everyone wants to shoot this one and for good reason, very accurate.


New batch I just got back from Vic Samuels a couple months back, the 2 that are going in straight stocks are set up for wildcats on the 218 Bee case, the 12/15 action has a new Hornet extractor, all extra holes filled and surface ground, it was a mess. All have new firingpins, bush jobs, springs, and are ready to go.

Mark IV - ISU

Sounds like a MKV
You are quite right; my old scale is erratic. Another trip to the scale suggests that the Mark IV with sights, comes in around 11 - 12 lbs. Definitely an "ISU" from the receiver markings.

Special 20 project testing

I am testing the Martini 20 cal. that I made about 4 years ago. It may be a keeper if I can get a flyer out of the target. Using 223 M cases to make the 20 cal. which is about .100's shorter than a 204 Ruger. First loads appear to be OK with extraction, but the rimless case is causing a little problem. I made a spring to help keep the extractor against the barrel so the case rim will be picked up everytime. Needs a little more adjustment as of now. I don't know the velosity at this time. I was hoping for around 3600 fps if possible.

Mac-man: Is that one of those Viani mounts? How stable is it and how solid is it attached? I've always been hesitant about using a cantilever mount but that looks interesting.

Cheers,

Mark

22 Rem. Jet. I used to have a Smith and Wesson pistol in that. I'd like a rifle better, I'm sure!

No, this is a Mac Tilton mount. It attaches to the breech using the two screws that hold the Parker Hale sights on. Well made and very stable. I recommend it.

Hi

Thanks . The mounts were custom made by the previous owner who is a retired engineer and army sniper , I shoot with him each week and he always beats my score .
