I hope to do more of these kind of themed shoots… I hope you enjoy things… It’s a bit more in-depth than usual and hopefully the shooting compliments the history nicely…. Please understand that this is not a comprehensive look at the action but rather a way to put the use of the Martini in some what of a context. Any details I have missed, are of course, due to the fact that the video can’t be an hour long!…. :-).
Hi all, welcome to Britishmuzzleloaders… Don’t let the name deceive you!
This is an Historical Shooting Channel that features British and Empire Military Arms from the Victorian era (plus or minus, that is). The Baker Rifle, the Enfield, the Snider, the Martini Henry, the Lee-Metford and Lee Enfield. Eventually there will be the a Brown Bess too.
Although the Channel was stared with a focus on the Enfield Rifle-Musket (hence the name), it has grown in scope and I hope that it might be your source for all aspects of using and shooting these fine old firearms in a military context.
Thanks all for your comments and questions. I look forward to hearing from you.
