I mentioned the other day about the condition of the barrel under the foreend of my recently aquired Martini Enfield. Here's a quick pic of it, and it does not do it justice. I was amazed at the quality of finish remaining. Other than a couple of tiny spots of pitting, the metalwork under the wood is excellent. I tried to show the row of stamps, directly under the rear sight area....They really did do quality work. I wonder how many of today's guns will look this good in 114 years.
