Is there any publication that will give the date of mfg. of a Martini Mk 11 by serial number or any other method ?

Not stamped?

I've never seen one that wasn't stamped with the date, has yours been refinished? My Mk2 is 1873, Victoria Regina (during the reign of queen Victoria). Brits are a bit psycho about arsenal and proofing records, their military rifles are usually stamped in many places with all kinds of markings for manufacturing, proofing, rebuilding, acceptance etc.

My description was vague ... I was referring to a BSA Martini International Mk 11 ... I've looked the rifle all over , no date of mfg..
