Love the history lessons you add in with this adventure.
I've got quite a bit on the No. 4 Mk 1 (T) that I have as well. Just so that I don't have a kid or grandkids take it to a pawn shop and walk away with $500 thinking they got a deal on it.Absolutely love the history of old guns.
I have several, although they are not as historic as the Martini.
When doing the research on them, the results are printed out and put in a folder so my heirs will know what they are inheriting.
Send it!! Go big bore or go home. You may be glad you did when that Buffalo gets bent outta shape.To much free time-weather keeping me in-doing some deep thinking.

This Greener Martini is currently chambered in 577 2-3/4 NE. I bought it from a customer some years ago as an unfinished project.
I am currently working on it to get it ready to take it to SA next year for Cape Buffalo.
All it needs is the stocks finished out and the load position adjusted. Trigger is fine. Barrel is new.
I have told you all that before, I think.
If I have, I am sorry. But I am over 70 and allowed, no expected to repeat my self.
I have discovered that this gun will feed 577 3inch NE. The rounds will turn the corner and go in the chamber. Of course the 3 inch cartridge won't seat as the chamber is only 2-3/4"

I have forty 3 inch cases.
I have a 577 3inch NE reamer.
I am getting ready to send this gun off and have the load position adjusted.
The question to this group.
Should I send the reamer with the gun and have it rechambered to 3 inch?
