looking for Enfield Martini questions answered...

a while back, I bought an Enfield Martini carbine switched to 303 British...

... or so I thought... in fact it was so good, it fooled my buddy who is very knowledgeable on the subject...

when we pulled the gun apart, the threads are not standard, & are in fact metric

the receiver has all the correct stampings & proof marks...

he was wondering if anyone knows if Enfield ever licensed rifles to be made in India or ??? the crown stamp is of perfect proportion, & it has all the right marks, in all the right places, but the innards are probably not Enfield, & the barrel threads are wrong... the gun is pretty pitted, but repairable to function, just was curious on the licensing, since the stamps all seem accurate ???
