Forgive the obvious pun, but it is a hint to my latest purchase: a Martini Enfield.  The smith said it was safe to shoot and worth more than I paid for it.  Photographs to follow..

From what's visible of the wood it looks to be in fine shape.
The Stock cartouches are sharp and well defined.
 
The Martini is another development of an American invention. The origin of the design was the Peabody rifle. The Peabody used an external hammer.
