Southern Ohio Gun has some in rifle and carbine configuration. They are pre 1898 and the fine print says not intended to be fired. My questions- Does anyone know the origins of the batch they have? How weak and unfireable can a Martini action be? I assume that these have been released from some former colonial state's armory. I have little interest in wallhangers, but would love a shooter, if feasible. Any thoughts, opinions, or education appreciated.
