Details & Specs

P - 1885 Long Lever Martini - Henry Rifle. "Lost Brigade" found! Claim your piece of a rare, one - time offer on genuine military relics of the 19th Century!

Rare British Empire originals! Imagine, if the day after the Battle of Gettysburg, all the discarded rifles and bayonets were piled in an old farm building and ignored for 130 years. That's the situation here. These Nepalese treasures were mostly supplied by the British who ruled the Indian subcontinent. These have been used, stored and basically forgotten in excess of 100 years.

Like an uncovered time capsule! Generations of dust and dirt have insulated the items in a thick, protective cocoon. Cool, dry temperatures of the Indian region preserved the antiques and basically eliminated corrosion-causing moisture.

Condition: used, in good shape. These limited few P-1885s have received a heavy-duty professional cleaning to remove the worst of the dust and dirt and have been packaged in protective plastic. Many have blemishes and will not look new. But talk about character! And consider the age of these history-soaked antiques from the 19th century.

These artifacts make marvelous display pieces and the rifles APPEAR to be in working order. Each comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. Satisfaction 100% guaranteed.

Colt® Competition .30 cal. Triple Chamber Muzzle Brake. SAVE BIG!

Put the brakes on recoil and muzzle jump. These Muzzle Brakes evenly distribute excess gas from both sides of the Brake to significantly reduce recoil and muzzle rise for more control, less downtime between rounds and less painful "punch" for your shoulder. Not to mention, you'll be able to see where your shot lands because recoil and jump are reduced.

Take a shot:

  • Fits most .30 caliber rifles and carbines
  • CNC-machined from 4140 solid steel bar stock
  • Heat-treated for durability
  • Manganese-phosphate weather-resistant finish
  • Threaded 5/8"-24 TPI
  • 3 progressively-sized Chamber Bias Ports at the 1 o'clock position help compensate for muzzle rise
  • An offset port at the 11 o'clock position helps compensate for muzzle rotation
  • USA made.
