  • Rare Martini-Enfield Cavalry Carbine Mk. 1 chambered in .303 British. This rifle was originally manufactured by RSAF (Royal Small Arms Factory) Enfield in 1874 as a Martini-Henry Mk. II in .577/450, but was converted to a Martini-Enfield Cavalry Carbine in .303 British in 1896. These rifles are identical to the Martini-Metford Cavalry Carbine, the main difference being the usage of newer five-groove Enfield rifling to accomodate contemporary smokeless ammunition. The Martini-Enfield was used by Australian soldiers sent to South Africa during the Second Boer War (1899-1902) and Lawrence of Arabia's troops during the Arab Revolt (1916-1918). 
  • This particular rifle was issued to a cavalryman in New South Wales according to the brass stock disc, and the leather sight cover bears the inscription "A. PARKER 1899" on it, potentially the name of its owner. The rifle also has completely matching numbers, however the cleaning rod is absent. It was eventually sold out of government service and into civilian hands according to the presence of opposing arrows stamped on the reciever and barrel.
