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 ???
In life you either make dust or eat dust...
