BSA Model 12 Martini .22 Rifle

What do you think about this video?

Kevin Williams: Great Video thanks for sharing - Shame BSA now only make airguns (but they're good airguns! ) The logo is known as "The Piled Arms"

Enfield Thom: I'm no expert, but if your barrel is 25" long then you may just have a model 8 rifle, not a model 12  ( 12's had a 29" barrel ) just sayin :)

mojofish1: Love your adjustable shooting rest

Logjam5: Deadly

Fone Star: Very classy rifles!  I will never sell mine.  I have the No. 13 Martini, basically the same as the No. 12 but with a shorter 25" barrel.

Basudeb Tripathy: I have got a Martin 13 .22 Target Rifle. 

TheLegumMagister: I have one of these rifles a BSA Model 12f, a later one, probably post WWII. 

It iss not a takedown and has the later Parker Hale Model 2 front sight and a Model 7 rear sight.  These are very accurate rifles, as can clearly be seen!

Excellent video.

Rudie Steenkamp: I am looking for a model 13. We used them in high school in the rifle team.

314299 Shooting Channel: No doubt about it the Boers were very competent and motivated.

richard kuhn: We shot with very similar rifles in the cadet corps, more basic fixed peep sight and not take down. they were very very accurate. Then once a year got to shoot R1 rifles (South African built FN-FAL) on a cadet camp in the bush. I hope you were refering to the best soldiers on the Brit side of the argument in the Boer war?

314299 Shooting Channel: Yes, and even poorer after having bought them all!

jsm666: Yet another rifle I now want in my safe "just because". *sigh* If I actually bought all my "that looks cool" guns, I suspect I'd be a poor man through feeding them all.

314299 Shooting Channel: I'm going to guess it was a C No.7 in cadets?

Fone Star: Great video, thanks! I learned to shoot with a .22 converted Lee Enfield.

314299 Shooting Channel: Thanks.

Laur Thermes: Nice clear informative video.

Ian Chalklin: Very nice vid!!! Non take down full open iron sights Martini .22 was the first firearm I ever shot as a boy. Always thought the action was odd...still do lol!!

314299 Shooting Channel: Yeah, they are a nice rifle indeed. Thanks for commenting.

314299 Shooting Channel: I suggest checking out a website from the UK called rifleman dot org dot uk, they show many of the Martini action target rifles and you can compare to the one you have. As for price is varies by location, but around here they would go from $400 to $700 depending on condition.

NZV3rge: I have been looking after one of these for a number of years for a friend and it hasn't been shot since but never knew what it was until I started looking today. Your one is the most similar one I have seen so far but mine does not have the roostering indicator and the barrel cannot be removed otherwise the action is identical along with all the markings as far as I can tell. Do you know which model mine is and what the current value on these rifles are? Thanks
