Dara odd balls. The top is a Pakistani rework of a Turkish rework of a Long Lee to 8mm Mauser but according to importer it is now .303 by the Pakistani gunsmith. Both 8mm and .303 will chamber--not safe to fire in my estimation.
The middle are No.5s done in Dara and Pakistan. The second one from top is marked with Savage Square S marks. See stock marking picture.
The third rifle down has a nice finish with receiver ring (pictured) marked as made in Pakistan.
The bottom is a single shot rifle with the only real part being part of the bolt assembly.

The Martini's are .303 and the bottom is a possible India made Snider MKIII in .577 cal. Inserts show the various martini markings.

Great rifles, thanks for posting. Where did you find them? The Lee-Mauser is particularly interesting, a great addition to a collection.

here and there over the last thirty years or so. Based on old magazine ads, Walther Craig, Selma Alabama brought in a number as well as martini pistols and fake Webleys in the mid 1960's. The Lee Mauser is a new import version from Pakistan and is a rework of the Turkish military rework of the Lee.
