Spent some time in the workshop

#1 Post by 1066 »

As it's been cold an wet I've been hiding away in the workshop for a couple of days. Just made a handful of magnetic ammo blocks for the Martini Internationals. These are in the style of the old Parker hale QL5 blocks. Also made a few Scope rails for the Internationals.

Great work - wish I could do that. Also reminded me of my early days shooting with Martinis.

Thank you.. The International Martini's, when fitted with a scope and flat forearm block can still competitive for benchrest. For less than £500 you could buy a rifle, scope and mount and a flat forearm block and compete with the latest Gruenig & Elmiger, Walther or Anschutz costing ten times as much, and not be too disadvantaged.
