Description

Nepalese made Martini type 'Gahendra' rifle, calibre 577/450. These are completely hand-made, home-designed copies of various designs. This rifle was imported from Nepal via the USA and imported by myself 10 years ago or so. I have cleaned it of yak-grease and re-oiled the stock.

Condition:
Bore is very good, showing strong rifling.
Action is currently non-functional due to the absence of the martini type lever (this is the only item missing)
External pitting to barrel is visible as with most of these rifles, where the wood meets metal.
Ramrod is seized - these are screwed into the action and would need some heat and oil to free.

Would make an excellent wall hanger or restoration project - only bound to go up in value. I am only selling as I am emigrating.
