Hi guys,
This turned up at a local hockshop. It's an 1878 MkII complete with sling , bayonet with scabbard & brass muzzle cover. The stock is solid with no cracks and the bore is in very nice shape.No blue left just "patina". The only Sanskrit markings are on the sling and the butt. Under the left side of the sight are the letters NNESP. Can anyone decipher this? Price was six bills out the door. A good deal?

That is actually two seperate lines of letters under the site and it indicates this rifle is from the Nepal cache as are currently being sold by IMA and AC. Go to either's web site, add of the cost of what they charge for what you bought and you'll find you got a decent deal.....assuming all is sound and functional.

the letters NNESP

The stamp is, "N.S. NEP"? It stands for Native Service Nepal.

All for $600 - that's a very good deal! That set would cost $955 plus postage from IMA, and would go for ~£900 ($1400) in the UK.
