I. Hollis Double Rifle and Martini for Sale
      #307788 - 15/11/17 06:57 AM

Martini 577/450 Carbine Sporter $1000
A lightweight very handy sporter - 6lb 8.5oz. Meant to use the "Carbine" charge and so marked.
Strong Henry rifling.
Sound wood with a horn forend tip.
Sling eyes on barrel and butt.
Newer case colors on action and butt plate. Newer blacking to barrel, trigger group, safety and cocking indicator.
There is a bur in the chamber which still needs to be smoothed out. It tends to scrape cases on extration. Shootable as is but that needs to be sorted.











I. Hollis & Sons .500BPE 3" $2000
Jones underlever - locks up tight. Rebounding hammers.
A great first BPE rifle or a double you wouldn't hesitate to take out in the woods.
Overall, a sound rifle. The action has been buffed and blacked - kind of shiny.
The wood has various nicks etc. and there is a little gapping around the locks.
The bores have strong Henry rifling. Frosted throughout but very shootable.
I have shot this rifle with no issues.

Glad that is 577/450. Do you know who did the restoration? Have you shot this gun or even chambered a round in it?

The colors and blacking were done by Mike Tulowitzki.
I haven’t shot the gun myself but loaded some rounds for Mike to shoot at Ellis Brown’s shoot a couple years ago.
I can look through the fired brass and post a picture of a fired case.

Here are some pictures of the fired brass.
You can see the teardrop shaped dent from the burr in the chamber.
