    Smile Martini International Mk. 2, 3, etc.

    Happy New year all, I have posted ads in search of a Martini 22lr. I would like to get my grandson started in some informal benchrest. Does anyone have anything ther are willing to part with? Harvey

    Thad Scott usually has a few. I have heard he grades a bit liberally but it's a source.

    I have one that I shot in benchrest some years ago, I use it for 3p now. I don't recommend the mkiii for benchrest as its too heavy for anything but ARA. By removing all unnessasary sight blocks and wood on the front stock I got the weight down to 13 lbs 4 oz with a conventional scope. Also the underlever makes benchrest more difficult. Needs to be setup higher on the bags for the lever to clear. Most mkiii's have a scope block on the receiver that can be used with the rear block on the barrel to use a modern scope. The mkii would required some modification. The trigger is a bit heavy on the mkiii for benchrest. Manual says it will get down to 8 oz which is still too heavy. Mine will only go down to 12 oz reliably. I also used the bolt from the handstop to mount a 3 inch wide piece of painted plywood to the front to give more stability on the front bag. The Martini gives good accuracy for the price.

    Google up John Appleton in Front Royal VA. He's noted for having quality stuff and you could go right to him. Good luck!
