My Gues is you have a Francotte and not a martini at all. The picure you posted sure looks Francotte. The Francotte is pretty poor and early into the Nepalese venture into cartridge guns. They have some problems with those guns, I don't think they had British help with that one.

I still think you need a visit to AC.

I did find the SOG material and will post it in a separate post. I though I posted it on BM a couple o years ago, but can't find it now.
