It was trialled in 1871, adopted in 1874 and the Mk2 version introduced in 1877.

What happens when we get your order ?
We have a large number or Mk2 and Mk4 rifles they are still in packing and grease when you place your order we remove one from storage and clean the rifle up removing all the grease and packing material, we then inspect the rifle for damage and mechanical workings along with the bore with an expert armorer once the rifle has passed we ship the gun out to your home address. If the gun does not pass inspection for any reason we select another and start the process again. This normally only takes a few days and you have you rifle within a week of ordering. If you are un happy with your rifle we can exchange it for another but this does incur a re stock and exchange free. Please bear in mind the guns are 130-140 years old.
It is almost impossible for us to take photos of the guns before we ship them as this means cleaning the guns up and inspecting them and all this takes time making it not economically viable to do so however all the guns are of the same quality and high standard, we have 1 on display in our shop for your inspection if you wish to see an example before ordering.
