Ancient Afghan Firearm


Recommended Posts

A tidbit from this morning's newspaper (The Toronto Star, Toronto, Ontario, Canada)

A small pic on the masthead area of the World News section - puffing a story inside - shows an elderly Afghan holding what looks to be a Martini Henry carbine. Impossible to rell whether its an original or a hill made copy, the latter more likely, IMHO, but either waya cool pic of a venerable firearm. I believe they went out of service in Her majesty's Forces in the 1890s and in the ciolonies sometime before 1939. Sentimental; value or just a very poor man?
