Thanks for the links... better info than I found on my own so far...

problem is, the markings are genuinely better than those shown as fakes ( crown is perfect shape, no typo's or miss matched letters, or fonts, ect. )

the guy I bought if from, said it was authenticated at ( I don't remember exactly ) but something like at the "South Dakota Arms Auction", or some such...

It may still be a copy, ( most likely in fact ), but it was good enough to fool my retired builder buddy until he got inside it ( & he's built & rebuilt lots of Martini's & has drawers of spare parts )

from the markings, he's still wondering if Enfield ever licensed some India company to produce them before they released them from "ownership" ???
