LSA conversion of a Military Martini Henry MkIV 577/450 to a .22 Target rifle for the:
"Society of Minature Rifle Clubs"

This rifle originally started out out as a Enfield 1888 Military MkIV rifle, then converted circa 1900 for the SMRC, this conversion consisted of fitting a new .22 barrel with adjustable front sight,
modifying the falling block for .22 and re-calibrating the sights for .22. As the .22 barrel is a few inches shorter than the original, the fore-ends were also shortened.

A BSA folding rear sight is also fitted which is correct for this type of conversion

The Butt appears original to the rifle as it correctly marked with an Enfield Roundel with the IV designation below, regimental marks indicate Kings Royal Rifles (KRR)
